What are the season dates for minors, majors, intermediates and seniors (often referred to as draftable divisions)?
The draftable division season runs begins about the 3rdr or 4thtweek in March, through the end of the Boise School district school year. Our goal and philosophy is to be done with baseball the same time school is completed for the year. However, due to weather conditions and potential rain delays, we occasionally have to complete the season the first week in June.

Where do we play?

Check out the information under the Parents Tab, "Baseball Divisional Paths" and "Softball Divisional Paths" for this information.

What is a draftable division?
Draftable divisions are Minors, Majors, Intermediates, and Seniors. Draftable divisions mean that your child will attend assessments (not try outs). Assessments help us gauge the skills of all players so that we can create balanced and safe teams. The team draft occurs after assessments where all players are drafted to a division and team.

Who should attend assessments?
All players that are league age 9-13 are required to attend assessments. Assessments will determine the final division in which your player will play.
Players league age 7 and 8 can attend if they would like to potentially be placed in the minors division. Any 7 and 8 year olds that do not attend assessments will automatically be placed in rookies. As a note, very few 7 and 8 year olds are moved to minors after assessments.
Players that are league age 14-16 do not need to attend assessments as they will all be placed in the Seniors division based on their age.

When are assessments held?
Assessments are held two Saturdays in February or early March. Players are assigned a date and time to attend, however accommodations can always be made if the assigned time does not workyou’re your family. Assessments provide coaches, division directors and the board an opportunity to see each player catch, field and throw a baseball. This allows us to place players in the correct division and team based on skills. Our goal is to always create balanced and safe teams.

Does NBLL offer financial hardship scholarships to players?
YES! NBLL thinks every child deserves to have fun playing baseball regardless of their ability to pay. We offer financial scholarship to players and we encourage you to reach out if you have any questions or have a player to nominate for a scholarship.  Contact [email protected]
