Registration Instructions

Registration remains open for softball, tee-ball and AA/Juniors/Seniors baseball. Late fees apply. The A baseball division is waitlisted. All other divisions are closed to registration.

Here are the steps involved in registering your player for the 2020 season. These instructions apply to both softball and baseball. Want to know about what equipment you'll need? Where we play? Important dates? Consult our
2020 Season FAQ.

Step 1: Determine If Your Player Is Eligible to Play for NCLL

North Central Little League is in Washington's District 8 and encompasses parts of Wallingford, Greenlake, Fremont, Phinney Ridge, Greenwood, and Ballard. Your player must live or go to school within NCLL boundaries to play for NCLL. Consult the League Boundaries page for details.

Although during registration you will be asked to provide documentation attesting to your player living or going to school in NCLL boundaries, this is not required.

Step 2: Determine the Appropriate Division For Your Player 

In the registration process, you will enter your player's birthday and will be offered to enroll in one or more programs/divisions depending in his or her "league age". To find your player's league age in advance, and to see which division your player is eligible to play in based on his or her age group, consult the League Age/Division Chart page.

For more details on each division, please see the following pages.  

Baseball Divisions Overview | Softball Divisions Overview 

can make a specific request during registration for your child to play in a division above the one for which he or she is eligible. The request must be reviewed and explicit permission must be granted for a player to play in a higher division. The exception to this is league age 10-11 players who played in Majors division last year. You may simply register them for Majors. If you do request your player be permitted to play in a higher division, the league will assess your player's abilities (see below) and take the following into consideration when deciding if he or she can play in a higher division:

  • Can the player play safely and competently in the upper division?
  • Feedback from previous coach
  • Composition of teams and number of players in division
  • Division parity

In addition, all players wanting to play in AAA, Majors or Juniors, irrespective of the division in which they played last season, must also be assessed. It is not necessary to indicate that in your registration.

You will be notified via email of the dates, times and locations of the assessments. At the assessment, coaches observe the players and the Player Agent uses the information to form teams with the goal of promoting competitive balance. Once registered and placed on a team, you will be contacted by the coach of the team your player is assigned to.
All kids will make a team.

For more information on player assessments, including when, where and how to prepare, please see the assessments pages for:

Baseball Assessments | Softball Assessments

Once your player is assigned to a division, the team to which he or she is assigned is based on policies specific to the division. Team assignments are expected to be completed by late Feb but there is often movement even after this date to insure competitive balance, accommodate late registrations, etc. Please see the team assignment pages for more information.

Step 3: Register Online

If you're a new user to our online registration system, click the Register button above and create an account. If you're a returning user, click the Login button. From there you will be directed to our registration system. (No mail-in registrations will be accepted!)

Full payment is due at time of registration. Payment can be made with a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover) during the online process. For registration fees for the 2020 season, please see the Fees and Financial Aid page.

At NCLL, we believe every child should be able to play regardless of ability to pay. If you wish to apply for a scholarship for your child, please click here prior to registering.  
If approved, we'll provide the necessary information for you to complete the registration process.

After the official registration period is over, registration will be accommodated on a space available basis, even for returning players. If your player's age group is closed, a waitlist option will be available. Your credit card will not be charged unless a spot is made available for the player.

Step 4: Volunteer

North Central is run entirely by volunteers. The league relies on parent and community involvement to be successful. Please consider volunteering for one of the club level or team level positions. You can indicate how you want to help during online player registration.

Please see our Volunteer Opportunities page to see where we need help most.

Registration is required for all volunteers. Anyone who has regular contact with players during games or practices must complete the online volunteer registration and submit to a routine background check. Within 48 hours of registering, you'll get an email from JDP, our background check vendor, with instructions for what to provide them. Please complete the questionnaire as soon as possible after receipt.

Contact the Head Registrar at [email protected] for any other questions or review our registration policies.
