We are pleased to announce that the registration for the 2018 Spring North Hunterdon Softball season, for girls age 4 through 14, is now open. Our Girls Softball league is open to any girl living in Hunterdon County.  Your league age is based on your age as of January 1st 2018.

Please feel free to forward this registration to any friends or family with daughters in the Flemington, Readington, Tewksbury or any other town in Hunterdon county with a family looking for a competitive softball program for their daughter.  

Our League

North Hunterdon Youth Baseball and Softball is a non-profit corporation 501c3 whose revenues are derived solely from its membership fees and fundraising efforts. We are not affiliated with any municipality or recreation department and receive no public or municipal funding. All costs associated with operating our league, including field rental, equipment, uniforms and umpire fees, are paid through our registration fees and fundraising efforts. Our games are played at Bundt Park in Clinton, North Hunterdon High School and occasionally on Jericho field 2.

2018 Volunteer Statement and Opt Out Fee-

We are a 100% volunteer run league.  From our board of directors to our managers and coaches.  In the spirit of volunteerism, we require that all families volunteer 3 hours of their time, per child per season, to help insure the basic operations of are league do not fall only on our board members and managers. 

 Volunteer time includes manning the snack shack, prepping and recovering the fields before and after games.  Assuming a manager’s position or one of two assigned coaching positons, being a team administrator or helping with various fund raisers and field clean up days.   In 2018 a family can purchase a volunteer waiver for $35 per child to be exempted from any volunteer service.

Save the Date:

Minors Tryouts will be held Monday 2-19-18 at Branchburg Sports Arena from 730pm-9pm

Majors Tryouts will be held on Friday 2-23-17 at Branchburg Sports Arena from 730pm-9pm

Spring 2018 Softball

The Spring program will run from mid/late March to early/mid-June. Teams will play an average of 1 game during the week and 1 game on Saturday.

If you are interested in being a manager or coach, you will find a separate registration on the NHYBS registration site – there is no cost to register as a manager or coach.
