Registration is open for 2018 Tournament Teams

 

Registration is now open for Needham Little League Baseball players and coaches interested in participating on a Needham Little League tournament team in the spring/summer of 2018. Needham Baseball has the opportunity to enroll two teams from each league (Needham American and Needham National) at three different age levels (12s, 11s and 10s) in the Mass. District 11 tournaments. These tournaments offer youth baseball players currently participating in spring baseball to represent the town of Needham in tournament play against other towns in District 11, which include Walpole, Medfield, Norwood, Westwood, Sharon, Canton, and Hopkinton.  

 

Registration: To indicate your son or daughter’s interest in participating and being evaluated for selection, please go to the online registration tab. Registration is free, and will be open until May 11, 2018.   

 

Note:  Participation on a Needham Baseball Tournament Team requires a player’s commitment to: attend all practices/games, and submit proof of age and residency documentation. Coaches interested in serving as a head coach or assistant coach must also register. The enrollment of teams at each age level is based on having an adequate number of registrations to field teams from each league.
