About North Snohomish Little League
North Snohomish Little League (NSLL) was organized in 1996 when Snohomish Little League became too big and was then split into two leagues. The league played on fields adjacent to Harvey Airfield until it was forced to relocate due to new FAA restrictions after 9/11. As a result, NSLL acquired 24 acres in the valley East of downtown.
Our own facility, built in 2004, ensures the children of Snohomish will have a place to play baseball and softball for many years to come. NSLL is the baseball home to nearly 600 baseball and softball players in the central, northern and eastern areas of historic Snohomish. From the Snohomish River Valley to Lake Stevens in the North, these children attend four different elementary schools, numerous private schools, Centennial Middle School and Snohomish High School.
Last year we fielded nearly 40 teams of children age 4-16 during the spring season. Each team plays a minimum of 12 games (4-8 yr. Olds), and as many as 30 games for the older divisions (13-16 yr. Olds). Our training and development season extends play through the fall season. In all, this equates to approximately 50,000 fans and players on our fields from March through October. Since we own our fields, summer tournaments and leagues bring additional fans and players from our district, county, and state.
Message from the President
North Snohomish Little League (NSLL) is a young league, as Little Leagues go, but our history and ties to the Little League tradition go before us as a s
trong foundation on which we can build. Chartered in 1996 as a “League of it’s own,” NSLL was the newly appointed little league representative for the northern half of the 13,000+ children now residing in the Snohomish School District.
The quickest way into the hearts of Snohomish families is through its youth sports. While traditionally known as a football town, with the formation of NSLL in 1996, baseball in Snohomish has quickly become an equal power. Snohomish High School has now become a perennial baseball power as 2nd place in state in 2007 and State Champions in 2008. These boys grew up playing Little League baseball in Snohomish. We proudly continue that success as our 2009 “Majors” All-star team represented our community as District Champions and State Tournament participants stopping just a few short steps away from the Little League World Series.
In addition to our connection to the Little League family, we have a privilege most leagues cannot boast: owning our own fields. We are excited to own a first class baseball complex that is teeming with potential. Using Little League’s exacting standards, we have built a facility that can host post-season tournaments, not only for Little League, but other baseball and softball organizations as well. As a business leader in Snohomish with three boys in youth sports, I am strong believer in building a stronger community for our children and this is a cause worth giving my heart to. Over 200 dedicated volunteers, board members, umpires, coaches, concession workers, grounds keepers, and “team parents” join me as we serve over 1,500 children and their parents in not only providing a safe place for kids to be, but a fun place for them to grow and develop as well. For this time, and for this purpose; “Building a Future for Our Kids,” is what North Snohomish Little League is all about.
