HAPPY HOLIDAYS to the Northside Families and Happy New Year!
- Northside Board of Directors
Every fall season at this time the Northside Board begins the process of formulating the schedule to kick off the Spring season. Although we are in trying times with much uncertainty, we again are moving forward with registrations for Spring Baseball and Softball. Normally you would begin to see flyers sent home from the players’ schools alerting you to the programs, deadlines, structure, costs, etc., but with virtual classes for most students, we will be relying heavily on emails and word of mouth.
Each year opportunities to serve on the Board become available (some are voted in, some are appointed). As players age out, move to different neighborhoods or teams, or sometimes move out of town, these positions become vacant.

The existing members, on a priority basis, are addressing all tasks that would normally be handled by vacant positions. This is why we need families’ help in filling the gaps. We encourage younger players’ families to try and become involved, as this would allow for multi-year involvement in the success of the League. Most Board meetings are open, and attending these is a great way to learn the processes and see where you might be able to help.
Look for information in the next few weeks about the registration. We have submitted a ‘Return to Play’ plan with Albemarle County to ensure the health and safety of all players, coaches, and parents, and are awaiting approval so that we may initiate the registration website. As uniforms, insurance, charters, equipment, etc. are front-loaded in the sport of baseball and softball (everything has to be purchased as soon as possible to be able to begin a season), we are formulating a schedule that would allow everyone to know the critical dates for full or partial refunds if the County or State prohibits play as the start of the season rolls around.
We remain committed and excited about getting these kids out on the fields again and will do everything possible to ensure an educational, safe, and most of all fun season for your players.

SIGN UP FOR TEXT/EMAIL ALERTS
We have set up a text/email alert system through Rained Out. It is very simple to register. Simply click this link and go to Northside's Rained Out page. From there, enter your email or mobile phone number and accept the terms and conditions. The system will text or email you a verification code that you will need to enter. Once that is done, you are all set. You do not need a private group keyword to get alerts.
Northside is a volunteer run league - we could not be successful without the help of Northside Families and Community Members! Each Northside Family is asked to meet a minimum volunteer requirement of 2 hours.
Northside offers many opportunities to volunteer such as:
