2015 Season Update and Information

Far North Youth Baseball is still accepting limited registrations for some ages (some are waitlist only).  This may change if we max out so if you know of someone who hasn't signed up yet or is considering playing, encourage them to sign up as soon as possible because space is limited.
Coaches and Assistant Coaches
Shortly a link to the certification course will be sent to all head coaches and assistant coaches that have signed up as coaches in the registration portal.  If you still need to sign up, click on the registration link.

Prospective Coaches
We are always in the need of more coaches and would like you to consider coaching with Far North Youth Baseball. Good coaches are the foundation for any youth sports organization and at Far North we are committed to giving you "The Coach"  the tools necessary to succeed. The time commitment is a few hours per week for the younger levels and  12 to 16 hours per week for ages 9 and above. We will need a few additional coaches in Tee Ball, Coach Pitch and possibly a few in the older levels. Please seriously accept this offer to help with your son or daughters team.  It is such a rewarding experience. Thank You.

Umpires
We will be holding umpire clinics starting this coming up week. Umpires will be compensated. Again we are looking for people who not only want to make a few dollars but also understand that an umpires job is vitally important for calling the game and in the development of our players. We will give all umpires the tools necessary to succeed. Times and locations for the clinics will be posted soon. Umpires must be registered to participate. Go to our registration link to sign up.
 
Volunteers
The league is run solely by volunteer coaches, board members and helpers. We need your help to keep the league running efficiently and to continue to build a network of valued volunteers! To register as a volunteer go to our registration link. Also, we're using VolunteerSpot (the leading online signup and reminder tool) to organize our upcoming volunteer activities for Opening Day Ceremonies and other activities.

2015 Season Registration

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN FOR THE 2015 SEASON!

We here at Far North are pleased to announce that registration for the 2015 Baseball season is now open and accepting signups!  Registering online is the easiest and most efficient way to register your child.  Please visit our REGISTRATION LINK below to sign up today.

A few important items of note relating to registering your child for the upcoming season:

  • If you're new to our league: Welcome! Because our national affiliation is with PONY Baseball, anyone can register and play in our league, even if you are currently participating (or are planning to participate) in another league in the Anchorage area! 
  • Some of the unique benefits to participating in our PONY based program include:
    - Equal play time for all players
    - Field size conformity to age & ability
    - Baseball with modified MLB based rules starting at age 9 - Kids grow with the game!
    - Longer season = more development time & value for your money
  • For new and returning families, please see our 2015 Parent Handbook.  It's stuffed full of information about our league and its makeup, goals, volunteer positions, code of conduct, league and facility rules, a calendar of events for the 2015 season, and much more!
  • While registering online is the easiest, fastest and most efficient way to get started this season, for those of our membership who would like to, we will be having a few walk-in times on Sundays at the end of March and the beginning of April. (Exact dates, times and location will be announced soon.)
  • Mandatory evaluations for all players aged 9-17 will be held at a date to be announced in April. Age group ranges and their associated evaluation times will be announced later this spring, along with an additional date/time/location for make-up evaluations.
  • Attention Softball Families: Registration for softball is currently open for high school players!

    Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns about anything at all. We are here to help!

Far North Youth Baseball Needs You
to Volunteer for the 2015 Season!

Are you passionate about youth baseball and softball and its future in our community? Do you want to become a part of a dedicated team who puts kids, young adults and their families first, one who really cares about and believes in what they do and loves to have fun while working together? If so, Far North Youth Baseball is a great place to give some of your time and energy!

Our organization is operated solely by volunteers with a broad, diverse array of skills drawn from their individual personal and work backgrounds, all of whom have but one common goal: the betterment and continued development of our league and the children and their families that are at its core.

Join the Far North Youth Baseball Board of Directors!

Far North has enjoyed great success in recent years by increasing the opportunities for all youth to play, extending the regular season and adding a Fall Ball program for extended, late season opportunities. The league was also responsible for creating opportunities that have provided maximum safety, development and fun through modified rulesets and playing fields.

Additionally, because the boundaries of our league comprises the entirety of the Greater Anchorage area, the Far North Board of Directors has a very unique opportunity to guide the future of youth baseball and softball for all of the families in our community. We are passionate about serving young athletes and making a difference in their lives by promoting opportunities for skill development, teamwork, leadership, friendship and loyalty, and because our board of directors is mainly comprised of parents and relatives of children currently involved in our league, new members are needed each and every year.

The next several years promise to be exciting ones for Far North, and we need your help to continue to have a positive impact on our community and membership, SO GET INVOLVED TODAY!
