Balanced teams have been formed based upon player evaluations at the Rookie/Minor/Major divisions. Tball and Softball rosters have also been set. Families can view your player's team assignment and practice information on the sportsengine app now, so please download that on your phone, if you have not already. Further directions for sportsengine are posted below.
This spring, Northside will have 3 Major teams, 4 Minor teams, 6 rookie teams, 4 Tball teams, one 8/10U softball team, and one 12U Softball team. Practices will start once a week for all by mid-March. Games will be played on either Friday OR Saturday for Majors, with some local away games. All other divisions will play on Saturdays. 12U Softball may have Sunday afternoon games, with a few local away games. Practice and game locations include Lakeside Middle/Hollymead ES, Baker Butler ES, and Woodbrook ES. The recreational season wraps up on June 3rd, followed by a playoff to determine the division winner for rookies, minors, and majors during the week of June 5th.

Northside uses SportsEngine for all communications. After you register your player, please download this application!

Use the messages and chat features to communicate with your coach and teammates. View your teams upcoming practice and game schedules. Hear about cancellations or other important updates.
Importantly, with as much advanced notice as possible, please use the RSVP feature on your app to let the coach your player will be attending or missing a practice or game. This is helpful because coaches must plan ahead for games where they are short the required # of players and at the upper divisions they need to set their lineups ahead of time. To access this feature on your app, click on schedule, click on the specific game date, click on the RSVP tab, and select yes, no, or maybe in regards to your player's attendance.
Also, if you would like for more than one parent to have access to your player's team schedule on the app, please try the following: Have the person who registered the player log on to sportsengine. In the top right hand corner, go to settings and click on manage your household profile. Add a second (or third) adult as a 'guardian' for your player and once they accept the invitation, they will also have access!

After an exciting season, the teams were winners of their divisions this past spring:
Majors - Angels
Minors - Storm

Three Northside All star-teams practiced and played during the last few weeks of June 2022. 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.
