NMBA 9U Division
2024 Season Player Birth Years: 2015-2016

In the 9U Division we will focus on the basics of the game of baseball in a FUN learning atmosphere.

There will be a mix of baseball-related and athletic movement exercises to keep the kids engaged during practices.

We will mix in games throughout the season with both Coach pitch and Kid pitch.

9U Spring Ball plays fair play rules.
All players play at least 3 defensive innings per 6 inning game, and all players bat. We conduct pre-Spring Ball evaluations to get a sense of player skill level and form teams of roughly equal overall skill, ensuring that each team is competitive in their league. Coaches are strongly encouraged to give all players an opportunity at all positions (where they are comfortable and won't be at risk of injury). Coaches are strongly encouraged to give all players an opportunity to pitch. The primary objective given to Spring Ball coaches is to make sure all their players finish the season wanting to come back next season. Coaches typically divide players into station groups during practice of similar skill level, so that each station skill can be scaled up or down in a way that is appropriate for the skill level.



2024 Spring Ball Season will be 10 weeks: April 8 - June 14

Practices and  games will be seventy-five minute sessions twice per week on Tuesday, Thursdays and some Fridays. Final schedules are determined by number of teams and will be circulated after evaluations and team rosters are complete.

Practices and games will be hosted at a combination of Departure Bay Fields, Sid Clark Gyro Park Fields and SF3 (Serauxmen Sport Fields) between the hours of 5:00pm- 7:45pm.

There will be two (2) sessions per evening at various diamonds. 5:00pm-6:15pm and 6:30pm-7:45pm. 

Evaluation dates, times and locations will be sent to you via TeamSnap by March 8th. Team rosters and schedules will be created in TeamSnap by March 31.
