Northfield Youth Baseball (NYBA) In-House Registration
Baseball Registration NOW OPEN!
Register today through March 31st | www.northfieldyouthbaseball.com
NYBA In-House Baseball is open to any child who is entering Kindergarten in the fall (age 5 by September 1st), all the way through the 8th grade.
T-Ball: currently enrolled in Pre-K (and/or age 5 by September 1st, 2020) and Kindergarten Futures: currently enrolled in Kindergarten (who have played T-ball before) and 1st grade Rookies: currently enrolled in 2nd and 3rd grade
Minors: currently enrolled in 4th and 5th grade
Tournament Teams: for 4th grade (10u) and 5th grade (11u). Please note that this registration has already closed for the 2021 season. If your player is signed up for a tournament team, they are automatically signed up for “Minors” league in-house baseball as well. Tournament team players will play in-house “Minors” league and participate in tournaments with their tournament team.
SMCBL: formerly “Majors” league, is for 6th, 7th and 8th graders looking for less of a drive/time obligation than on a 12u, 13u or 14u travel team. The league was created to give older players a more authentic feel without as much travel throughout the summer and on weekends. Games will still be played in neighboring communities, such as Lakeville and Farmington, as well as at Sechler Park. SMBCL players must sign up via “Travel” registration on our website.
Please visit our website for specific dates/times of each age level:

Virtual Puppet Show: Loon Song
Thursday, March 25, 10:00 a.m. on Facebook
Julie and Gustavo Boada return with another amazing puppet show! As the constellations move into their spring location, Grandfather Turtle waits with anticipation for the return of his beloved granddaughter, Loon. He remembers the Ojibwe stories he told her and some of the lessons they carry that he used to guild her as she matured. Told with hand and rod puppets, Loon’s Song touches on Ojibwe culture and loon biology. Premiering on Facebook at 10:00a.m., facebook.com/northfieldpubliclibrary
