Thank you for choosing to register with Northview Little League for the 2020 regular baseball and softball seasons.
Little League Baseball has begun a phase-in of an league-age eligibility date change for baseball only beginning in the 2015 season. Boys baseball players league will use Aug. 31 as the league-age date. This change does not affect softball players and Girl's T Ball players. A detailed description of this change and league-age calculator charts can be found in the Documents section (left vertical menu) of the league home page.
A change in state law, which took effect in July 2013, requires every parent and player to receive state-provided information regarding concussions in youth sports, requires all coaches to have received online training prior to coaching this upcoming season and requires a player who has been removed from play due to suspicion of a head injury to be cleared to play by a medical professional before resuming practice or game activities. All registrants will be required to acknowledge their receipt of these materials. You may have already seen this information during Fall or Winter sports. If you have not, the document that requires acknowledgement is available at this link http://files.leagueathletics.com/Text/Documents/12131/45385.pdfand is always available in English and Spanish on the Documents page (left side vertical menu) on the home page. Links to the state website regarding this change are available on the home page Club News item about this law.
