NEEDHAM BASEBALL 2018 SPRING LITTLE LEAGUE REGISTRATION OPEN AUGUST 15th

TRYOUTS - SEPTEMBER 16-17


The following applies to those planning to play in Needham Baseball's AAA or Majors baseball programs in Spring 2018.  There will be a separate email for Babe Ruth Registration and tryout dates.

In order to tryout for the 2018 Spring season, the player must be registered by Sept 14, 2016 using this link.
 
If you are planning to coach in the 2018 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

Players who are trying out for Majors do not need to tryout for AAA.  However you can attend both tryouts if you want to. 

All other players are required to tryout (even eleven year olds and returning AAA players).  We do this so that we may properly balance the teams.  

If you cannot make your tryout time slot you may show up at any time during the tryouts.  We use the schedule above to alleviate long lines. 

If you cannot make the Saturday tryout you can attend the Majors Tryout on Sunday September 17th.  Just mention when signing up at the tryout that you are here for AAA tryout. 

If you cannot make either tryout date there will be a supplemental tryout.  Contact Dave Lambert at   for Date and time.

Notes:  Players who were in Majors last year do not need to tryout for Majors again this year.   All other players are required to tryout (even twelve year olds), so that we can properly balance the teams.  

If you cannot make your tryout slot you may show up at any time during the tryouts.  We use the schedule above to alleviate long lines. 

If you cannot make the Sunday tryout you can attend the AAA Tryout on Saturday September 16th. Just mention when signing up at the tryout that you are here for a Majors tryout.  

If you cannot make either tryout date there will be a supplemental tryout.  Contact Dave Lambert at   for Date and time.

Fall Softball Signups Open Now!

 

We offer fall softball programs for 10U, 12U, 14U and 18U (note that our travel programs are age based, and not grade based).

This fall we expect to have teams in both the Charles River and Metrowest Leagues.  The competitive Charles River League plays doubleheaders on Sunday mornings from mid-September until the end of October for 10U, 12U and 14U.  The 18U teams plays 1 9 inning game on Sunday mornings.

The Metrowest League plays most games on Saturday afternoons or Sunday afternoons, also in September and October.  All games will have ASA umpires.  Practices for each team will be scheduled at each coach's discretion.

Teams will be selected based on spring tryout data and coaches' input.  If we have enough players sign up and register for fall softball, we will have more than one team at each level.  If not enough players sign up or register, then all registered players may not be placed on teams.

The registration links are as follows:
