Lincoln Youth Baseball Organization (dba as Junior Saltdogs League)
Junior Saltdogs is a summer youth baseball program. We have 7 divisions…U6 tball, U8 machine pitch, and player pitch for U10, U12, U14, and U16, as well as our Homer’s Heroes division for kids with physical or intellectual disabilities.
We have 100+ teams each season, and there are no tryouts. JSL commissioners form the teams based on the preferences that each player lists on their registration form for a specific coach, friend, or school. While we can’t guarantee specific team placement, we do our very best to honor listed preferences while at the same time balancing player numbers between all the teams in each division. Please check out the FAQ page for answers to many questions.
2020 registration is now underway for all our divisions!
Register before February 23 to avoid a $25 late fee.
Online registration is available 24/7 for your convenience; however, we encourage you to register at one of 4 in-person registration dates (see dates, locations, and advantages below).
Late registrations accepted from February 23 until midnight on March 7 by online registration only.
After March 7, no additional registrations for U6-U14 will be accepted (no exceptions). U16 division only – note there is a second registration period in April/May (see the U16 page for details).

- You avoid paying the online processing fee (apx 8%) which is charged by the online agent.
- If you select the Saltdogs ticket booklet as your fundraiser option, you’ll receive the booklet the same day.
- If you’re registering for U10-U16, bring your bat to registration for the bat inspection to be done (see the box at right for the 2020 bat rules).
- JSL board members are available to answer questions.
ONLINE REGISTRATION: While we highly encourage you to come to in-person registration, we also offer online registration as an added convenience. A processing fee (about 8%) is charged by the online processing agent and will apply to all online registrations. Credit cards and electronic checks are accepted for payment. The late registration period (online only) begins February 23 with a $25 late fee added. The final late registration deadline for U6-U14 is midnight on March 7. [PLEASE NOTE: If your online registration processes correctly, at the end of it, you will get a screen stating it was successful as well as a separate confirmation email directly from Active.com (the online vendor) a few minutes later. Watch for these as well as for your payment to go through your account. Be sure to save the confirmation page and separate email confirmation that Active.com will send to the email address used in the online registration. These items are your proof of registration – they will be needed should we not receive your online registration for any reason. If you do not receive either of the above, you should assume that your registration did not process correctly. Please re-try the online registration or contact Deb at firstname.lastname@example.org for help (especially if you are close to the final March 7th deadline). If you have any trouble registering online, you must contact Deb BEFORE midnight on March 7). Click here to begin the online registration process.
LATE REGISTRATION: Late registrations for U6-U14 will be accepted by online registration only from February 23 until midnight on March 7. See the paragraph above on how to know if your online registration processed correctly. In addition to the online processing fee, a $25 late fee will also be charged. After March 7, we will not accept any additional registrations for our U6-U14 divisions (no exceptions). If you’re wanting to register for our U16 division, see the U16 page for additional information.
NO REFUNDS: The JSL has a “no refunds” policy so before registering your child, please be sure their plans are final. If you plan to list a coach or friend request, you should be in touch with them before registering your child to confirm the coach/friend request’s plan for playing and for which division.
HOW TO MAKE CHANGES AFTER YOU REGISTER: Changes can be made through March 7 by emailing Deb at email@example.com (she’ll reply so you’ll know she received it). After March 7, we are not able to make changes.
QUESTIONS: Most questions can be answered by referring to our FAQ page but if not, please email Deb at firstname.lastname@example.org, President Dina Euler at email@example.com; Vice President Mark Svoboda at firstname.lastname@example.org, or your division commissioner using the email link on each division page at left.
