Spirits Travel Softball Tryouts

NWCBA Families,

 

We understand some of our families may be saddened to learn that NWCBA will not have a recreation softball league this spring.  Due to a lack of auxiliary fields this spring, we simply do not have the capacity to support a recreation softball league.  We are working hard to add auxiliary fields in order to support additional programs in the future.

 

However, we are excited to announce a new partnership with the Spirits travel softball organization.  On Saturday 12/15, the Spirits will be having tryouts for 10u and 12u teams that will practice at the Factory!

 

If you are interested, please register for tryouts via the following link.  Given these are new teams, girls of all levels are invited to participate.

 

Please contact with any questions including any interest in 14u+ travel softball teams.

SPRING 2019 REGISTRATION OPEN!!!


by posted 12/01/2018
TRYOUTS MOVED TO SUNDAY 11/18!!!
North Wake Tryouts for Spring Travel Teams will take place on SUNDAY 11/18!
 
To reiterate the plan:
  • Registration:
    • We are doing things differently this season.  We are not going to be scrambling to collect contact information when parents and players walk up to tryout.  That makes for a lot of pain for so many reasons!
    • EVERY PLAYER MUST REGISTER PRIOR TO TRYING OUT.  Here is the registration link.  No exceptions.
    • There is no cost associated with trying out or with registering.  It enables us to collect and disseminate the information fairly and quickly to the coaches.  Plus, it allows NW to have a record and provide consistent communications going forward to those interested in joining the league.
  • Field and time information by player age:
    • 8U & 9U Travel Ball Tryouts, Field 2, 1:00 pm 
    • 10U Travel Ball Tryouts, Field 3, 1:00 pm
    • 11U Travel Ball Tryouts, Field 6, 1:00 pm
    • 12U Travel Ball Tryouts, Field 5, 1:00 pm
    • 13U & 14U Travel Ball Tryouts, Field 4, 1:00 pm

BAT CHANGES - NWCBA

New Bat Restrictions coming to NWCBA

For players 15u and younger in NWCBA Recreation Leagues, a BPF 1.15, BBCOR, or USA Baseball designation must be displayed on the bat. Big Barrel bats will now be allowed in all the rec leagues at NWCBA.  They however must meet the restrictions listed above and not larger than 2 5/8” in diameter. 

 

What are the key takeaways regarding these new youth baseball bat rules?

  • In order to maintain the integrity of youth baseball, the USABat Standard will create wood-like performance in youth bats while allowing younger players to use light-weight bats that could not be achieved with wood bats.
  • AABC, Babe Ruth / Cal Ripken, Dixie, Little League, and PONY will all be affected by the USABat rule change, but USSSA will not. Currently, USSSA Baseball will allow the use of a bat that carries the new USABat stamp (as long as barrel diameter, drop weight, material specifications, etc. match the specific division's requirements).
  • AAU will vote on whether or not to adopt the USABat Standard in the Fall.
  • USABat will not have a drop weight limit.
  • USA Baseball will allow the use of 2 5/8" big barrel bats for all age levels.
  • Not all baseball organizations are following the USABat Standards.  NWCBA is allowing these three standards for the time being.  This may change in the future, but not for the 2018 season.

 

More info on the USABat Standard can be found here:
