While NCLL provides bats for each team, most players elect to supply their own bat. NCLL recognizes that bat purchases are both an important part of a player's performance and a potentially expensive purchase. As such, we strongly encourage parents to confirm the bat is permitted under Little League guidelines. Click here for Little League's most current list of approved bats.
NOTE: NCLL strictly complies with the official Little League list. It is your responsibility to ensure your son's and/or daughter's bat is legal!
Games are played at Columbus Park, Madison Park and Shoenecker Field. More information can be found here..
All information will be distributed by your coach or team parent. This website will have the most up to date information.

Division coordinators assign T-Ball and Machine Pitch players by age and parent requests. For Juniors, Majors and Minors we hold a “draft” in March where all coaches come together to select their teams.

Per Little League International we must have a completed background check on file for anyone with regular contact with our players; we must be in compliance with this or we could lose our charter. Regular contact includes: Managers, Assistant Coaches, Team Parents and Umpires.
Practices start in March or April, games begin approximately the last Saturday of April; the entire season is generally completed by approximately July 15th. We do not play games on Memorial Day or Fourth of July weekends.
This website or your team’s Manager will let you know what games or practices are cancelled via TeamSnap. Make sure your email is up to date in TeamSnap and that you have your mobile number entered as well to receive text messages. Rained out games are not re-scheduled.
Each family is required to pay a $50 volunteer fee. This fee is returned to you after the completion of five volunteer hours. We rely on volunteerism in order to keep our league functioning. If you do not volunteer we will keep your $50 volunteer fee.
You must complete and return your volunteer forms each time you volunteer. These forms must be legible and have the address that you would like the check mailed to. Again, to receive your $50.00 refund, a minimum of 5 hours of service is required.
If you do not receive your refund within 3 weeks of turning in your Volunteer Forms, please contact the treasurer at: email@example.com
The monies from registration are used for equipment, uniforms and umpires.
Fundraising monies are used to cover other expenses like field upkeep and to finance our new facility at Madison Park.
We offer a few fundraisers for families to participate if they choose to. Parents can choose to sell Pocket Peelers, which are then distributed to Team Parents on Opening Day. Team Parents then distribute to families. Any cards you sell, you keep the money. If you choose to not participate in the pocket peelers you are charged $30 for a buy-out ($60 for multiple children families). Other fundraisers include the Golf Outing and Home Run Derby. NCLL is always looking for fun and effective fundraising opportunities. We’ll let you know of any new in-season events!
