Registration for NSELL's Fall 2016 baseball season is now open.
Fall baseball is a competitive program with opponents in other Newton leagues as well as Weston, Needham, and others. Games begin in early September and are typically played two times per week, one on Sunday and one during the week. The season lasts approximately seven weeks, plus playoffs. We try to have it all over by November 1.
The fall programs are extremely important for players’ development, since they are essentially the equivalent of another spring season of experience. For purposes of the fall league, participants must be age eligible for the 2017 Little League Spring Season. Each League is responsible for recruiting and registering their own team(s) and must provide a Little League Field and Umpires for games played at that field.
The cost of the Fall program is $125. Registrations made after August 23 are subject to a $30 late fee and placement is not guaranteed. Refunds may be requested before August 23, 2014 minus a $20 administrative fee. No refunds will be made after that date.
There are three divisions:
Majors - open to players who were on a NSELL Majors team during the Spring 2016 season with another year of eligibility for 2017. Also, Minors players who will be Little League age 12 for the Spring should register for Majors and will be placed on a Fall Majors team to gain experience.
AAA (Minors) - open to players who were on a Spring 2016 AAA team, and select players from the AA Division upon invitation by the Fall Commissioner.
AA (Minors) - open to players who were on a Spring 2016 AA team, and players from NSELL's 2016 2nd Grade Farm season.
Farm (Coach Pitch) - open to 2016/17 first & second graders.
Please register for the program based on the criteria above. Players who are moved up will be notified by the Commissioner and those registering for the incorrect program will be placed in the correct league. The decision of the Commissioner is final.
PLEASE NOTE: Fall placement on a Majors/AAA team should NOT set an expectation for placement at the same level in the following Spring. It should not be perceived as a child is "sent back down" or "demoted" - the seasons have different participants and different levels of competition for spots. Tryouts in the Spring are more competitive.
