How many games will each team play during the Fall season?
Our regular season will last 10 weeks. We play one game per week and teams will play 9 or 10 games total during the season.

What days per week are games scheduled?
After Opening Day, the Rookie division will play their games on Friday nights. Tee Ball, and Minor divisions will play their games on Saturday mornings.  Major and older divisions play games with the other teams from our district and their schedules are determined by the district board members, so games can be on various days of the week.

What equipment will my child need for the baseball season?
NOKLL will provide players with a team hat and uniform shirt. Players will need pants, a belt, socks, cleats, and a glove. You should wait until your team assignment before purchasing the other parts of the uniforms to find out your team’s color scheme.

We also recommend players have their own batting helmet.

Many players in the league also have their own bats, but it is not required. If you are buying a bat, please know that Little League baseball has changed their bat regulations recently. To be used for play in NOKLL, your bat MUST be stamped with the USA Baseball logo. Please read our bat guide article for further information (NOKLL Little League Bat Guide).

We encourage you to buy equipment from our league sponsor, Dick’s Sporting Goods on Colonial.  They will announce a shop day for our league before the Fall season and provide our families a 20% discount on purchases, so lookout for when that is scheduled.

Where does NOKLL play their games?
NOKLL currently plays and practices at Blue Jacket Park in Baldwin Park. Some divisions may play other leagues in town and may schedule games at those fields.

The address for the NOKLL field is 2501 General Rees Ave, Orlando, FL 32802 (Google Map for Blue Jacket Park)

Which division should my child play in?
Little League divisions by age are:

Tee Ball: This division is for 4 year olds and 5 year-olds with less than 2 season experience. Focus is on introducing kids to baseball, basic fundamentals and having fun. Kids will bat off the tee for the entire season. There will be 1 practice and 1 game per week.

Advanced Tee Ball: This division is for 5 year olds with at least 2 seasons of teeball experience and all 6 year olds. 7 year olds with no experience are included in this league as well. During games, kids will get 4 chances to hit against coach pitching and then bat off the tee if necessary. There will be 1 practice and 1 game per week.

Rookie: This division is for players 7-8. 7 year olds must have at least 1 season of experience unless a player is evaluated by a NOKLL board member and deemed appropriate and safe for this division. 9 year olds with no experience are also included in this division. The Rookie Division is a development league with the primary focus on learning and teamwork. Kids will rotate positions during games and bat against either a coach or a pitching machine.

Minor: This division is for players 9-11. Pitching is now done by the players, there is open defensive substitution and a continuous batting order.

Major: This division is for players 11-12. Much like the Minor Division for the Fall, just with older and more experienced players.

Intermediate: This division is for players 11-13. As the name suggests, this division is to help bridge the gap from the Little League size field to the Senior size field, with an intermediate distance of 50' pitching and 70' bases. Players may also lead off at this age.

Senior: This division is for player 13-16. Here players transition to a full size baseball field with almost all of the same rules you'd see in a professional game.

For a more complete breakdown, read the Little League Division page here (Little League Division Details)

Divisions are based on league age, use this chart to determine the league age of your child (League Age Chart and Information). The Fall 2018 season will go by ages for the 2019 season.

What are the league boundaries for North Orlando Kiwanis Little League?
NOKLL's boundaries include Baldwin Park, Audubon Park, Colonialtown, Mills50, Pineloch, Ivanhoe, and parts of College Park and Winter Park. If your child lives in or attends school in one of these neighborhoods, you should be eligible to play in our league.

If you have any questions, please enter your address in the Little League Finder to confirm which league you should play in (Little League Finder).

Can I volunteer to help the league?
Absolutely, our league is entirely run by volunteers and we welcome additional support to keep our program successful. During the player registration process, there is a section for adult volunteers, we recommend adults fill out this section and check any positions that you are interested in. Some of the volunteer opportunities include Head Coach, Assistant Coach, Board Member, Fundraising, Concessions, Sponsorship, and Team Mom/Dad. Please let us know if wish to help.

Is there a concession stand?
Yes, we have our Snack Shack, you can view the menu here. The Snack Shack is open during most of our games at Blue Jacket Field. There is a vast selection of drinks, breakfast, lunch, and snack items available. The Snack Shack is entirely volunteer operated and it is mandatory that each player's family volunteer for a concession shift to help, this does not need to be during your child's game though.
