This fall we are offering tball, rookie, minor and major baseball divisions. We have also just confirmed that we are able to offer softball for ages 12-16. Registration fees are $35 for Tball and $50 for all other divisions.
Here is the link:
Please sign up right away if your child is interested so we can form the teams and get uniforms ordered! After August 19th, the registration fees will increase for all divisions and we also can not guarantee a spot if teams are full and balanced.
Practices should start in late August and games will begin after Labor Day. The fall season is shorter than the spring, with games wrapping up at the end of October. There is no All-Star team and tournament at the end of the fall season. All teams will practice once a week. Rookie and T-Ball typically play games on Saturday. Minors teams may have games on either Friday night or Saturday. Majors teams will likely play on a Friday. Softball games may be on a weeknight or weekend.
Moving up to the next division will occur in the spring. So, for example, if your child played Minors this past spring, then they automatically will be placed in Minors for the fall. If your child is new to baseball, the registration will place your child in the appropriate division according to their birthdate.
If you have any other questions, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
As always, we are always grateful to our volunteer coaches - please indicate your interest on the registration form. We do ask that all families volunteer at least two hours a season, as we are striving to grow the league and keep fees low. THANK YOU ahead of time for all of your time and support for the league.
Let's have a great fall season of baseball and softball!

Three Northside All star-teams practiced and played during the last few weeks of June. We heard that everyone had fun and learned a lot from their experience. Thanks to the All Star coaches, parents, and players for putting in that extra time.
8U played at Crozet/Peachtree the weekend of June 23rd and fought hard but lost to Greene and one of the Peachtree Teams.
10U played in Rockville the weekend of June 23rd in the heat and through one double header. After an initial loss to Rockville, the 10U team rallied to beat Greene 13-9 and then fell to Madison in round three 16-5.
12U also had an exciting tournament hosted by Northside the weekend of June 15. A loss to Rockville was followed by a hard fought win against Madison 9-7 and then a loss to Peachtree.
Way to go players - can't wait to see what you all do next year!
