Northeast Seattle Little League Registration is Open for the 2017 Season!

December 26th, 2016 by hillaryu

Wes Henrie, president of Northeast Seattle Little League (NESLL), is pleased to announce that registration is open for the 2017 season.  “I want to thank NESLL’s managers, coaches, volunteers, sponsors, and parents for the tremendous support year after year.  Last season, NESLL had more than 1,000 players and 76 teams from baseball, softball, and tee ball.  It was a fantastic year and we’ll continue to provide a positive experience for youth athletes in northeast Seattle.”

For kids 5-6 years old, NESLL’s tee ball program is a great way to introduce the game.  Led by NESLL’s player development coordinator, Joe Lampitt, the league partnered with Baseball Positive and created a baseball fundamentals program for younger players, new coaches, and parents.  Wes said, “It was a tremendous success!  For parents looking to introduce their young children to athletics or baseball, I highly recommend NESLL’s tee ball program.”

NESLL’s softball program is a great way to get young girls involved in athletics and be a part of championship teams.  “Softball is the fastest growing program in NESLL.  There are opportunities for girls of all ages to compete and play against teams from across the region.  NESLL has fielded championship teams at both the city and district level.”

NESLL’s baseball program has opportunities for boys and girls ages 6-16 to learn about teamwork and the fundamentals of the game.

For parents, there are plenty of volunteer opportunities within the league and with your child’s team.  If you’re interested in volunteering, please send an email to help@nesll.net.
