Junior Saltdogs League

2018 Season

[updated  5.18.18]


U6-U14 divisions:  Registration for our 2018 season is closed.  If you would like to be added to our database to receive registration information when it goes out for our 2019 season, please email your player’s name, mailing address, and a parent’s email address to Deb at jslregistrations@jrsaltdogs.com.

U16 (high school) division only:  The second registration period for the U16 division is open until May 23rd Go to the U16 division page at left for details and deadlines.


U6-U14 GAME SCHEDULES:  Links to the game schedules are on each division page at left.

BAT CHECKS…Remember, we have new bat rules for 2018 so all U10-U14 bats (even if they have our white “approved” sticker on them from a previous season) must be re-inspected and re-stickered by a JSL rep before they can be used in a game.   If you did not have your bat checked at one of our pre-season dates, you should plan to go to Fleming field this week (Mon May 14 – Thu, May 17) between 5:30pm-9:30pm while we have games going on.  Our site supervisor (wearing a navy blue JSL shirt) can do the bat check and if it is approved he’ll sticker the bat.  He’ll be circulating between the fields so just look for him when you arrive.

Just a reminder that bat checks are not needed for U6 and U8, and since high school bat rules apply for U16, we will check all U16 bats at a later time.

TEAM SHIRTS…If you need a new team shirt, contact Deb at jslregistrations@jrsaltdogs.com with the player’s name, division, team name, the new size needed, the # on the back of the original shirt, and the best phone number to reach you at.  The cost for a re-ordered shirt is $20 and is payable directly to the printer when you pick up the shirt.  Shirts take about 7 business days to be completed.

TEXT ALERTS…If you want to receive text messages when we have game rainouts or additional information to share, text JRSALTDOGS to shortcode 84483 from the phone you want to register. It will immediately send a text back to you to confirm that you are now registered or it will confirm that you are already registered. If you don’t get this, go to the Rainout Info page of our website for some troubleshooting tips.

PHOTO DATES FOR PLAYERS AND COACHES…Photos will be taken on the dates below.  Composite photos are used for the team photo.  This year, parents will have the option of receiving their photos electronically or mailed to their home as follows:

  • Sat, May 19 from 9am-3pm at Haymarket Park in the Alex Gordon Indoor Training Center which is in the northeast corner of the Haymarket Park complex.  Park in Lot 21 as close to the indoor facility as possible. [Follow the red arrows on the attached map]
  • Sun, May 20 from 12 noon-3pm at Haymarket Park (look for the table near the softball gate entrance) – note there is a 1:05pm Saltdogs game
  • Makeup date:  Wed, May 30 from 5-6:30pm at Haymarket Park (under concourse)
  • Makeup date:  Thu, May 31 from 5-6:30pm at Haymarket Park (under concourse)

Coaches will receive photo packets to distribute to all their players.  Extra packets will be available at Haymarket Park on photo days.  NEW THIS YEAR:  Parents who order photos will receive their photos directly from the printer by whichever method they choose on their packet–either electronically or mailed to their home.  The printer will also forward a free print to coaches who have their photo taken which will be forwarded to them at the end of the season.

JSL SANDLOT SUNDAYS AT HAYMARKET PARK…The Lincoln Saltdogs have come up with a great evening of family entertainment for Junior Saltdogs players…informal old-fashioned “sandlot” games played in the outfield of Haymarket Park and watching the movie “Sandlot” on the big screen.  Click here for a flyer with all the details.  If any questions, contact Bret Beer with the Lincoln Saltdogs at 402/474-2255.

U6-U14 END-OF-SEASON TOURNAMENTS:  Dates will not be finalized for the tournament until early July since rain makeups affect the schedule.  We guarantee that all regular season and tournament games will be done by July 31.  For a broad idea and planning purposes, once the game schedules are linked on the website, you can look to see when the last regular season game for the last team in your division is played.  Add several days to cover any needed rain makups and the tournament will follow after that.  But again – that’s just a general idea.  We get lots of questions about dates so for anyone vacation planning and you know your son won’t want to miss the tournament, the only thing we can tell you is after July 31 is safe.

LINCOLN SALTDOGS’ WATCHDOGS PROGRAM…The Lincoln Saltdogs would love to have Junior Saltdogs teams participate in their Watchdogs Program.  If interested click here for the flyer and contact the Lincoln Saltdogs directly at 402/474-2255.


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, please be in touch with them to confirm their plans before registering your child.

QUESTIONS:  Most questions can be answered by first referring to our FAQ page.  Or if a question still remains, please email Deb at jslregistrations@jrsaltdogs.com.
