NEEDHAM BASEBALL 2017 SPRING LITTLE LEAGUE REGISTRATION OPEN AUGUST 15th

TRYOUTS - SEPTEMBER 24-25


The following applies to those planning to play in Needham Baseball's AAA or Majors baseball programs in Spring 2017.  There will be a separate email for Babe Ruth Registration and tryout dates.

In order to tryout for the 2017 Spring season, the player must be registered by Sept 23, 2016 using this link.
 
If you are planning to coach in the 2017 Spring Season, please register yourself as a coach using Coaches & Volunteer Registration on the bottom of the page on this link.  
 
Eligibility for tryouts is based on "Little League Age" or LL Age.  Use the Chart below to determine your Little League Player’s Age.

The age chart looks a little funny for the 2005 players.  This is because Little League has changed the age cutoff date from April 30th to August 31st.

If you want to read more about the age change go to: Click here

Fall Baseball Registration is Open

The Bad News: Summer is halfway over.

C:\Users\Paul\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Content.Outlook\KZY7ZK14\Needham Fall Baseball Performance LS Shirts 2016.jpgThe Good News: Fall Baseball will be here soon!

There is only one month left in our regular registration period, which ends August 15th

Put down the Pokemon Go! and ACT NOW to be guaranteed a spot on a team and to capture a free long-sleeve warm-up shirt!

All players registered prior to our deadline of August 15th will receive a free Needham Baseball warm-up shirt.  It gets cold in the dugout in October, and this is the perfect solution.  Plus, you may optionally personalize with name and/or number for just $12.00.   


We have fall programs for baseball players from 1st grade to freshman year of high school.  Check out the offerings at:

http://needhambaseball.com/Page.asp?n=62942&org=NEEDHAMBASEBALL.COM

Registration is open now at www.needhambaseball.com.  Registration will close and teams will be formed on August 15, 2016, so register now!  After August 15th, players will be assigned only on a first-come, first-served basis where open slots are available.  It may seem far away, but register before the end of the school year to assure placement on a fall team (and a shirt). 
 

Fall coaches are needed.  Please contact the Fall Director, Paul Siegenthaler (paul@ridgehillpartners.com), if you are interested in coaching at any level.

  
Thank you for participating in Needham Baseball and Softball. 

For more information, email Paul Siegenthaler, Director of Fall Baseball (paul@ridgehillpartners.com).
