We wanted to share the information shared by Crozet Peachtree Baseball/Softball regarding the The Marr Scholars Fund:
"Since 2000 the Marr Scholars Fund has provided four years of college assistance to support 22 graduating seniors who played Babe Ruth baseball in Charlottesville. The fund provides $2500 an academic year for a four-year total of $10,000.
The Marr Scholars Fund honors the lives of two brothers – John D. and Richard T. Marr – who dedicated their lives and careers to the crucial contribution that a well-rounded education and healthy athletic competition provides to a rich life. John D. “Jack” was the president of the Lane Babe Ruth League in Charlottesville at the time of his death.
Previous Marr Scholars from Charlottesville have attended the University of Virginia, Christopher Newport, Virginia Commonwealth, University of Richmond, Virginia Tech, James Madison, Savannah College of Arts & Design, Hampden Sydney, Duke, Elon, Oberlin, and Haverford.
The criteria for selection of a Marr Scholar are academic achievement, character and citizenship, financial need, and plans to matriculate in a four-year college or university in the fall of 2023.
Applications are due online on June 12, 2023. To enter the competition, please complete this application.
Required material includes a one-page essay, high school resume, letter of college acceptance, financial aid sheet from college, and two letters of recommendation.
Please write Tim Marr, Trustee, at email@example.com with questions."
Balanced teams have been formed based upon player evaluations at the Rookie/Minor/Major divisions. Tball and Softball rosters have also been set. Families receive all information from coaches and the schedule using the sportsengine app so please download that, if you have not already. Further directions for sportsengine are posted below.
This spring, Northside has 3 Major teams, 4 Minor teams, 6 rookie teams, 4 Tball teams, one 8/10U softball team, and one 12U Softball team. Practices are once a week; games are played on either Friday OR Saturday for Majors, with some local away games. All other divisions play on Saturdays, except for make-up games. 12U Softball may have a few 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, for tball and softball, followed by a playoff to determine the division winner for rookies, minors, and majors during the week of June 5th. Division championship games will be on June 10th. All-Star evaluations are on May 7th and the teams will play in their District 5 All-Star tournaments during the weekend of June 16th or June 23rd depending on their age bracket.

Northside uses SportsEngine for all communications. After you register your player, please download this application!
For instructions on how to download it, click here: https://help.sportsengine.com/en/articles/227-how-to-download-the-sportsengine-mobile-app
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!
Northside is a volunteer run league - we could not be successful without the help of families and community members! Each Northside Family is asked to meet a minimum volunteer requirement of 2 hours.

After an exciting season, the teams were winners of their divisions this past spring:
Majors - Angels
Minors - Storm
Rookie - Timber Rattlers
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.
Way to go players - can't wait to see what you all do next year!
