  • How could covid-19 impact our season? What precautions will be made?
    • We all know that the current status of covid-19 is fluid and ever changing. This means that our season could be canceled at any time should the governor change the executive order. Refunds for registration fees will be issued if the season is canceled prior to August 18th. Subsequently, a prorated refund will be issued if we are forced to cancel after August 18th.
    • We are working with the City of GR to make our playing environment as safe as possible. Some of the things we'll be doing is providing hand sanitizer in every dugout, asking players to bring their own bat and to not share with other players, disinfecting shared gear as necessary, reminding fans to maintain social distance, etc. Social distancing & mask wearing is a personal responsibility and we will not require anyone to wear masks while on or off the field. Players and parents are welcome to wear masks as they see fit.
    Will there be practices? When? 
    • Coaches determine their own practice schedules. Most coaches will hold practices in the weeks leading into the start of the season but not once games start because school starts around the same time. Some coaches will continue to offer occasional practices but they are not mandatory.
  • Where will practices and games be?
    • For the most part, games will be held at N4 fields (Northern, Northeastern, Northwestern, and Northview Little Leagues but we do also send some games to Lowell, Western Little League, and sometimes Southern or Pinery depending on the need.
    • Practice locations are determined by the coach but are most often at N4 fields.
  • When are games?
    • Tee Ball games will begin at 11:45am.
    • All other age groups will begin their double headers at 1pm with the second game starting no later than 3pm.
    • The 2020 fall season will be 5 weeks long, games start Sunday September 13th.
  • When will we get a schedule? 
    • Once registration closes and we know how many teams we have we can begin putting together the schedule. Our goal is release the details of the schedule the week before labor day. With that said, the schedule is actually already set... your child has a a double header on Sunday at 1:00pm (single game at 12pm for tee ball), the only unknown is their opponent and field location.
  • When will we know what team we're on?
    • We will begin assembling teams after Aug 16th when registration has closed and plan to release rosters the following week.
  • Can I coach my child's team?
    • Of course, simply note that you'd like to volunteer as a coach when you register or send us an email if it's something you decide to do later. We always need coaches!
  • Can my child be on a team with a friend?
    • You can make your request to have your child play with a friend or with a specific coach when you register. We try very hard to accommodate all requests but they are not guaranteed.
  • Can my child play up or down an age group if I think he/she is at that skill level? 
    • Yes, please just send us an email ([email protected]) so we can discuss and make the appropriate changes.
  • What equipment does my child need?
    • All players need their own glove. The league will provide at least one bat, helmets, and catchers gear to every team to be shared by the team. You are welcome to purchase your own helmets, bats (see Little League bat rules). 
  • Are there team shirts?
    • Yes, team shirts are provided for all registered N4 players and will be handed out prior to the first game.
