Dear Northland Little League Families,
The health and safety of our players and families is very important to us. We are currently monitoring recommendations and updates from leading health organizations, government agencies and Little League International.
To error on the side of caution: as of today, Friday March 13th - we are suspending Winter Clinic Operations. As disappointed as we are to have to make that decision, we do not want to potentially aide in the spread of this virus and know that at this time it is the best decision for our players and families.
As the situation continues to change, we will continue to update our families on changes to our operational plans.
Please reach out with questions.
MAKE UP EVALUATIONS will be held on Wednesday, March 11th at Salk Balcony Gym from 6 pm to 8 pm.
All players interested in playing in the A Minors, Minors or Majors divisions must be registered and attend evaluations.
Not sure what level to sign up for, Click the Divisions page at the top or click here.
We have expanded our boundaries to include Anoka and further north. New boundary map to come. With our boundaries continually expanding, you can go to littleleague.org to see if we are in your boundary.

Little League® Baseball and Softball is the first organized youth sports program in the world, and was founded in 1939 by Carl E. Stotz, a resident of Williamsport, Pennsylvania. During the spring of 1939, a total of 30 players formed three teams, and Mr. Stotz along with a collection of volunteers from his neighborhood, embarked on the first season of Little League Baseball®. Today, millions of children — ages 4 to 16 — on six continents and scores of countries can attest that baseball, softball and Little League are synonymous.
