Signup Information

Registration for baseball and softball programs will be accepted by On-Line Registration beginning November 4, 2017. Please contact the Registrar if you need assistance.

Important Dates To Remember

  • Open registration is from November 4, 2017 to January 25, 2018.
  • Players may still register after January 25, 2018 but will not be guaranteed a spot on a team. An additional fee of $35 will be added to late registrations. (More information below)
  • Evaluations for Softball players and for Baseball player ages 8 through 12 will be on February 3, 2018.
  • Practices for most divisions will begin around March 1, 2018. T-ball and AA will begin later.

Proof of Age

  • ALL-STARS - Every player participating in All Stars must provide the league an original or certified copy of the player's birth certificate during the tournament. Little League International is very strict with this requirement. If your player does not have an original or certified copy of a birth certificate and hopes to participate in All-Stars we recommend you obtain one now.

League Boundaries

  • Please make sure your player lives within or attends a school within the NSLL boundaries. If you live within another Little League boundary and do not attend a school within Northshore Little League boundaries, please register directly with that league. Proof of residence will be verified with copies of utility bills, voter's registration and drivers license etc., before the start of All-Stars. Proof of school attendance will be verified with a school issued report card, an official school enrollment record, a completed form filled out by a principal or administrator etc., before the start of All-Stars. If you have any questions, please check the NSLL Boundary Map, or e-mail to verify the right league for your player.

Late Registration Information - After January 25th

NSLL offers an "Early Bird" discount for early registration and imposes a "Late Fee" for late registrations. The discount and late fee are both for the same purpose: we need players to register on time so we can start building the teams. Getting all our players to the right division and team is a complicated process that takes time. Registering late makes it much harder.

Any registration completed after January 25, 2018, will be considered a late registration and assessed an extra $35 fee. If all teams are full, late registrants will be added to a waiting list. Full refunds will be provided if your player cannot be placed on a team.

PLEASE SIGN UP ON TIME!

Fundraiser

NSLL programs are funded by a combination of registration fees, fundraiser, and sponsorships. Only about 55% of the cost for each player is covered by registration fees, but we keep these fees as low as possible to ensure everyone is able to play. We rely on broad and enthusiatic participation in the annual fundraiser to pay for fields, equipment and supplies.

Every player must participate in the fundraiser or pay $50 at registration to buy out.

To make the fundraiser more enjoyable for the kids, we offer great prizes to players who raise more than $200 and extra batting cage time to teams who meet their goals. Thank you for your participation!!

Evaluation Dates

All player ages 8 - 12 who register by the registration deadline will receive an email in the first few days of February notifying them of the date, time and place for their scheduled evaluation.

Evaluations are extremely important for helping get your player to the right division and to create competitive balance among the teams in that division. Please do everything possible to ensure your player is available for evaluations at the scheduled time. Please contact the Player Agent immediately if your player cannot be available at date and time scheduled so alternate arrangements can be considered.

See player level descriptions for more information on evaluation requirements.

We need more volunteers to help with evaluations! Call or e-mail us to get more details.

Season General Dates

Little League is allowed to start practice March 1st. However, usually only Majors and Minors start very early in March. AAA/89ers & AA/Farm usually start mid March. T-Ball starts in April when it is a little nicer weather.

The regular season runs for all levels until mid May and is followed immediately by tournaments for Majors, Minors, and AAA/89ers. These tournaments end around early June.

Bat Regulations

Little League Baseball has very strict rules for what bats that can be used at every level of play. Please read the rules carefully before buying a new or used bat for your player.

Click here for a detailed bat rules (new for 2018)

Click here for approved USABats

Note: Softball Bat rules have NOT changed from 2017

Team Placement

NO TEAM PLACEMENTS ARE GUARANTEED AT ANY LEVEL

Majors / Minors: All Minors and first year Majors players will be placed on teams through an evaluation and draft process.

T-Ball through AAA: All players from T-Ball through AAA will be placed on teams by volunteer league coordinators using criteria designed to promote safety, a competitive balance in the league, and the best possible experience for all players. When registering, players are invited to note preferences of coaches and friends. These preferences will be considered but SPECIFIC TEAM PLACEMENT IS NOT GUARANTEED.

Note: Co-Ed and Girls T-Ball registrations will try to be honored, however, depending on count of players, Girls T-Ball registrants may be placed on Co-Ed teams. Younger players who register for Softball Farm, depending on count of players, may be placed on T-Ball teams.

Player Level Descriptions

The following are general guidelines for appropriate levels of play for specific age groups. Please take the time to read and understand what level is appropriate for your child.

  • League Age 5 - All children League Age 5 will play T-Ball. There are no exceptions to this league age policy.
  • League Age 6 - All children League Age 6 should play T-Ball/Softball Farm. It is the rare, exceptionally talented League Age 6 player who can play comfortably and develop proper confidence and skill playing at the next level (at most 1-2 per season).
  • League Age 7 - Most children League Age 7 should play AA/Softball Farm. A player is ready to advance to AA/Farm when the player is starting to catch the ball with the glove "up" (at face level) as opposed to basket catches with the glove "down". The player will be successful putting the ball in play in some machine-pitch at bats. A ball thrown or hit at a AA player's head will usually result in the player making the effort to get out of the way.
  • League Age 8 - Most children League Age 8 will play AAA / Softball 89ers. Some still should play AA / Softball Farm. No 8-year-olds will play Minors. A player is ready to advance to AAA when the player is comfortable fielding infield grounders and making a reasonable 60-foot throw. At bat, the AAA player is learning to discern balls from strikes and can reasonably move out of the way of a pitch too far inside. A ball thrown or hit at a AAA player's head will usually result in the player making the effort to catch the ball with periodic success.
  • League Age 9 - Almost all children League Age 9 will play AAA. 9-year-old players should participate in Player Evaluations, although it will be the exceptional 9-year-old that is selected to play in Minors. Participation in Evaluations will allow them to have experience in preparation for the more meaningful Evaluations as 10-year-olds. The few 9-year-olds chosen to play Minors are players who are focused more than most, who know the game better than most, and who have talent in fielding, hitting and pitching ahead of most other 9-year-olds.
  • League Age 10 - Most children League Age 10 will play Minors. A few still will play AAA, and fewer still will play Majors. (It is extremely rare for 10 year olds to play in Majors). A ball thrown or hit at a Minors player's head will usually result in the player making a catch. The player is required to participate in Player Evaluations at this age for selection to a Minors team.
  • League Age 11 - Roughly half of children League Age 11 will play Minors, half will play Majors. The physical skill differences between 12-year-olds and 11-year-olds begin to be very different - more so than previous one-year age differences. So it is the 11-year-old player who loves baseball, knows the game, can safely avoid an errant, fast-moving inside pitch, and who can hit and field better than average who is ready for Majors. Players League Age 11 must participate in Player Evaluations and will be drafted either to a Minors or Majors team.
  • League Age 12 - Players League 12 must play at the Majors level. The player is required to participate in Player Evaluations at this age for selection to a Majors team.

Please see below for additional information regarding player level descriptions.

T-Ball

T-Ball is the starting place for young children learning to play baseball and softball. Any child League Age 5, 6 or 7 is eligible. Players under League Age 7 should play one year of Little League T-ball / Softball Farm before advancing to AA.

All players get an at-bat and play in the field every inning.

As the first introduction to organized baseball and softball, the primary objective is FUN!!! Every child should finish the season with a strong sense of teamwork, sportsmanship, and a good grasp of the following skills.

  • Warm up vigorously with lots of noise and counting
  • Give great team cheers before and after the game
  • Wear a baseball glove on the correct hand
  • Grip the ball properly with the other hand
  • Hold the bat properly in the batter's box and don't swing it until it is safe.
  • Drop the bat after hitting the ball instead of carrying it to first or throwing it
  • Identify the "next" base and know how, why and when to run to it
  • Set up in the field like a baseball player (down and ready) rather than make sand castles or fight dragons
  • Notice when the ball is hit and know basically what to do (as a batter and a runner)
  • Name the defensive positions
  • Identify the snack parent immediately after the game, say please, thank you and pick up the wrappers when done.

AA Division

Any child who will be League Age 7 or 8 is eligible to play AA.*

During games, the ball is pitched by a coach on the batter's team, using a simple pitching machine for consistency. Defensively, each team will have 10 players in the field, including 4 in the outfield.

AA builds on the skills learned in T-Ball with an continued emphasis on FUN!!! Managers and parents are strongly encouraged to focus on player and team accomplishment rather than the score. By the end of the season, AA players should have a good grasp of the following skills and rules.

  • Teamwork and respect for umpires and coaches
  • Warm up techniques
  • Proper throwing mechanics
  • Fielding techniques (proper down and ready position)
  • Useing both hands to catch the ball vs. one handed or trapped catches

  • Number of outs per inning
  • Proper batting position and basic swing mechanics

  • Good Sportsmanship (End each game with a High Five)

All Players under League Age 8 should play one year of Little League AA before advancing to the AAA level.

* In certain cases, with the approval of the Player Agent and the Executive Board, a skilled League Age 6 player may be allowed to play at the AA level if space is available.

AAA Division

A child who will be League Age 8, 9 or 10 is eligible to play AAA. League Age 8 players should play at least one year at AA level before moving up to AAA, and should have successfully demonstrated the skills required at the AA level.

This division is primarily for League Age 8 and 9 players who have successfully demonstrated all of the AA skills. This division is also for League Age 9 and 10 players who are not ready for the Minors.

All players League Age 8 and older must participate in player evaluations.

At the AAA level, all games will be player-pitch for the entire game. A regulation Little League baseball will be used. All players bat and 9 play in the field at a time.

The AAA level is where the players should begin to understand "WHY" they are making certain plays. As with the previous levels, the primary objective is to ensure that each player has a "positive experience" with baseball, desires to play again the following year, and has learned the skills listed below with the emphasis on "WHY".

  • Warm up techniques
  • Where to make the play
  • Communication (calling for a fly ball)
  • Proper fielding of GROUNDBALLS and FLY BALLS
  • Backing up plays
  • Pitcher position
  • Difference between a Force Play and a Must Tag
  • Good Sportsmanship

** All League Age 8 - 12 players must participate in Player Evaluations regardless of final level placement.

Volunteers

The Northshore Little League season does not just happen. It requires many hours by very hard working, dedicated volunteers to make it happen. This is where you come in and your help is very much needed. It is a great way to get involved with your children and community, meet new friends and have fun all at the same time.

Don't be afraid to get involved as any help is appreciated and welcomed. We ask that each person volunteer his or her time to make the season successful. Here is a sampling of the help needed.

Board of Directors

Your League needs a volunteer for Player Agent Associate, Softball Associate and Safety Associate.

Make a difference this season by volunteering for these much needed positions.

There are many other activities which the Board can use your help for. This is a great way to have an impact on the League's direction and vision. Let us know if you are interested.

Umpires

All NSLL Umpires are volunteers. Most are parents of current or former players. Most had no umpire experience when their child started in NSLL. Most teams have approximately 24 parents and two from every team will become umpires. NSLL provides excellent training, support and equipment for our volunteer parent umpires. And we expect that every other parent, player and fan will treat NSLL umpires with dignity and respect while they serve in this extremly important role.

Managers

Managers for Baseball and Softball are selected by the NSLL Board through a process of application, interview and background check. Applications are due by the end of December. Selection occurs in early January. Contact the President or Secretary for further information about becoming a NSLL manager.

Coaches

The more coaches each team has the more the kids can learn. A great way to learn the ropes to become a Manager.

Girl's Softball

This program provides the best softball instruction, training and competition for the girls in our community. To continue building this program, we need a lot of help in many areas including player agents, level coordinators, managers, coaches and umpires. Now is the time to step up and volunteer to make this a program to be proud of.

Team Parents / Volunteers

Managers provide hundreds of hours organizing your child's team and teaching your child the skills, rules and tactics of baseball or softball. Without your help, your child's manager will be overwhelmed trying to make everything happen. Please help your team by volunteering as an umpire, assistant coach, fundraising coordinator, party planner, jamboree coordinator, score keeper or team parent.

Role Of The Little League Parent

The parents of millions of Little Leaguers, combined with their youngsters, league officials, umpires, managers, coaches and countless volunteers including sponsors, represent an imposing cross section of the nation. Parents should accept the fact that they must shoulder the responsibility and take initiative to make the local program successful. Little League is not a club in which membership implies baby-sitting benefits and entertainment privileges. Practically speaking, Little League is an adult, volunteer work project constructed, supervised and assisted by volunteer parents who desire to make its benefits extend to all children. Each parent should join in the total effort. There is a place and a job for all to do. The burden of operating a league should not fall on a few. The parent who shirks this responsibility cannot in turn, expect others to assume the responsibility.
