U16 Registration

Registrations for all our divisions will be accepted from January through March 3, 2018 (see the home page for the registration form and details).  In addition, we will open a second registration period just for the U16 division in mid-April and it will be kept open until later May (typically a few days after all the legion teams are finalized – check back here for the final May registration deadline).  This will allow those who try out for a legion team but don’t make it, to still play high school baseball during the summer.


U16 Rules -2017 [updated 6.8.17 - 2018 rules will be posted here by April 2018]

Game rules are linked above.  Just a reminder that for 2018 we will continue to use high school bat rules for our U16 division.  This means that a player’s bat must have the BBCOR certified stamp on the bat and also be a -3 or less (i.e., -2) in order to be used in a game.  All U16 player bats will be inspected by a JSL rep on the first game night.  If approved, a sticker will be placed on the bat – only bats with this sticker are allowed to be used in U16 games.


U12 Game Schedule – 2018

The 2018 game schedule will be posted here in late April.  Until that time, we don’t know anything final; but we do know that U16 games may be played every week night at 6pm and 8pm and potentially on Saturday afternoons and Sunday afternoons/evenings – typically each team plays about 2 games a week with game nights varying from week to week.  We anticipate U16 season games beginning in mid-June.


Team Standings / Rankings

Team standings will be posted throughout the season as coaches report in to their commissioners with their win-loss records.


U16 Tournament Schedule – 2018

For the 2018 season, JSL will host an end-of-season tournament with a 2-game minimum.  Tournament dates will not be known until early July – they will be posted here when finalized.  Until that time, the only thing we know for sure is that all regular season and tournament games will be done by July 31.

Prior to the tournament, ties in team rankings will be broken by head-to-head play or coin flip.  Medals will be awarded to the top 2 teams based on final tournament results.
