Fall Tournament Teams
Northside's Fall Tournament Teams will focus on skill development and having fun.  Teams will normally get together just once a week on Sundays for either practice or game(s).  The cost for the team (if any) will be determined at a later date based on actual number of games and uniform costs.  Activities won’t conflict with regular Northside Fall league play and players are encouraged to sign up for Northside’s fall league in addition to being part of this tournament team; Northside’s regular Fall registration is available now.   

For more information about our Fall Tournament Teams, please visit our Tournament Team page

On Tuesday, 8/4 @ 530, we will meet at Baker Butler and go over the basics of pitching from a flat surface; face live coach and kid pitch at the plate, and practice advanced base running skills including leading, and stealing. Hopefully, we will finish the evening with a 1-3 inning scrimmage.
