NWSLL SUMMER BALL




NWSLL SUMMER BALL

NWSLL Summer Ball takes place in July through early August and focuses on fun and development, with a weekday, game-only format and flexible rosters.  

Registration opens mid-June 2022.

Our league’s Summer Ball program is a special experience for many reasons:

  • It’s open to both NW players AND 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 TEN possible divisions of play (older divisions may be combined depending on levels of enrollment):

NOTES:

If your player is between divisions, please take a look at our "Summer Ball Recommendations" chart linked at the top of this page. Generally players will play in the same division as in Spring.  One exception is for 12-year-old Baseball players who are encouraged to play up in 90' Baseball.

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 $60 for Tee Ball and Coach-Pitch and $75 for AA and higher.  Special Summer Ball jerseys are included in this fee.  If you have a Summer Ball jersey from last year that still fits, we appreciate you using it again (as they will be the same).  Hats will be provided to players who do not have one already, but otherwise re-use your Spring hat.
