NWSLL SUMMER LEAGUE

NWSLL summer ball takes place in July and focuses on fun and development, with game only format and flexible rosters.  

Registration is now open.  Coaches needed in all divisions. 

Our league’s summer baseball program is a special experience for many reasons:

  • It’s open to both NW players AND also non-NW players: Now’s a great time to play ball with your friends and family from other leagues.
  • There are no practices, just games.
  • The focus is on fun and development, not scores. Everyone plays every position—this is not playoff baseball.

There are now FIVE divisions of play:

2018 Summer Baseball (League Age 12 & Juniors/Seniors)

Summer League baseball played on a 90ft diamond. Open to league age 12 year olds & Juniors/Seniors. (The 12 year-olds are players who have just completed their last year of Majors’ eligibility.)

Most games are played at Lower Woodland Park, Whitman, and Magnolia. Games usually take place Monday through Thursday, twice per week, 6-8 PM with the possibility of a game on a Friday. Games start the week of July 9, finishing with a season ending tournament in early August.

Summer League teams have expanded rosters to accommodate vacations. There are no practices.

2018 Summer Baseball (League Age 11s & 10s)

Designed for all league age 11s and 10s. Games will be played with Majors rules. (This Division will be divided into two sub-divisions with the first division for 11s and 10s who have already played at least one year of Majors and the second division for players who will be playing Majors next season.)

Games are played at fields hosted by QALL, NCLL, NWSLL, BLL, MAG, RUG, and NESLL. Games usually take place Monday through Thursday, twice per week, 6-8 PM. Games start the week  of July 9th, finishing with a season ending tournament in early August.

2018 Summer Baseball (League Age 9s & 8s)

Designed for all league age 9s and 8s. Games will be played with AAA rules. (This Division is for 9s and 8s who have already played one year of AAA and plan to play at that level again or who will be moving up to play AAA next season.)

Games are completely Player Pitch Only.

* NEW * Girl’s Softball League (ages 8-10)

Games are mix of Kid and Coach Pitch.  Games take place Wednesdays on the Crown Hill playfield. Games start after the 4th of July, and end August 10th. Summer League teams have expanded rosters to accommodate vacations. This is an intraleague, sandlot format for softball players planning to play AA or AAA next season.

Development League (ages 6-8.)

Games are Coach Pitch.  Games take place Mondays on the Crown Hill playfield. Games start after the 4th of July, and end August 10th. Summer League teams have expanded rosters to accommodate vacations. This is an intraleague, sandlot format for developing players.

Tee Ball (ages 4-6)

 Tee-ball will have one Tuesday evening game per week on the Crown Hill playfield—possible two games per week depending on enrollment.  Games start after the 4th of July, and end August 10th.  This is an intraleague, sandlot format for beginning players.

NOTES:

If your player is between divisions—maybe moving into AAA next year— you can register for either division. Registering for the older division is a helpful way to get a taste of the next level of play before next season begins.

Coach volunteers are needed in all divisions. If you coached during the regular season (and/or are a cleared volunteer) and are available to help, please sign up (go through the same registration home page as your player).

Because our summer field rental costs are spread across many different leagues, the cost of registering for summer ball is $45 for Tee Ball, $55 for A (78er) division, and $65 for  AAA, Majors and Juniors. Special summer jerseys are included in this fee.  Hats provided to players who do not have one already.
