On Thursday, March 2, NSELL will be hosting our second annual season kick-off event at the Windsor Club from 7:30-9:30pm. Members of the board will cover our league's mission, how the league operates, goals within each division, and field questions from our community.
Last year, this event was appreciated by the attendees and spurred additional volunteerism. If you:
(1) are thinking of coaching or volunteering this year,
(2) have ever wondered what the board does, or
(3) WHY the league is set up in a certain fashion,
this is the event for you!
Food and beverages will be provided. In order to plan appropriately, we request you CLICK HERE to register for the event. It's Free!!!

NSELL serves players who either reside in or attend a school within the district bounded by Angier, Bowen, Countryside, Mason-Rice, Memorial-Spaulding, and Zervas.
The T-Ball schedule typically is one 3-inning game a week on Wednesdays at 5:30pm at Bowen Field and division-wide practices from 3:00-4:30pm on Sundays at Bowen. Farm typically plays on Sunday afternoon and one weeknight. All other divisions have games any day, typically on Sunday afternoon and one to two games during the week with some Saturdays.
As we have done for the past several years we will have the following divisions in 2017 for players in grades 3-6 who are not eligible to play in the Majors or who have not been drafted by a Majors team:
AA Division: This division is a developmental league and coaches are expected to emphasize having fun while teaching players fundamental baseball skills. Players pitch, scores and standings are kept, bunting is allowed, and limited base stealing is permitted. Games should be competitive, but coaches should utilize game situations to teach correct situational play and decision-making. Players will play a variety of positions.
AAA Division: This division is a more advanced league for players who have demonstrated a greater proficiency of baseball fundamentals. There is continuing emphasis on developing further baseball skills in a more competitive environment. Players pitch, scores and standings are kept, and base stealing (to third base) and bunts are permitted.
Note: Little League age 12 players may play in the minors by waiver only.
Players will be assigned to a Minors division by the league commissioners based upon previous coach evaluations and player tryouts. Players who wish to play in the AAA Division must attend a tryout (date and time still TBD). The purpose of having these two divisions is so players are placed at the appropriate level based upon their skills and experience to ensure skill development and enjoyment of the game.
Per Little League rules, only players Little League Age 10-12 are permitted to play in the Majors division. If your child would like to try out for the Majors then they should be registered for that division. Players drafted by a Majors team must play in the Majors; players not selected in the draft will be assigned to a Minors (AAA or AA) team by the commissioners. To verify your player's age eligibility go to the Little League Age Calculator.
Details regarding the tryout schedule for Majors and Minors will be posted later to the website and our newsletter.
