U16 Registration

For 2019, two separate registration periods will be held for our U16 division.  The first will be with our U6-U14 division registration from January 9 through March 2.

The second registration is for U16 only and will be from late April until late May.  Options for this registration will include in-person and online registration.  Check back for more details (and the final registration deadline) – they will be added here as they are finalized.  Typically we hold our registration open several days after the final NSAA high school baseball tournament game ends.

There are NO REFUNDS so if you plan to try out for a legion team, please wait until after their rosters are finalized before registering for the Junior Saltdogs League.

If you have any questions, please contact Deb at jslregistrations@jrsaltdogs.com or at 402/430-0390.


Rules – 2019

The 2018 rules are linked here for reference only – check back for the 2019 rules.


Game Schedule – 2019

The 2019 game schedule will be posted here in early June.  Games will begin about the 2nd week of June.  Game nights are unknown at this time but could be played any week night at 6pm or 8pm or on Saturday/Sunday afternoons or evenings.  Teams typically play about 2-3 games a week.


Team Standings / Rankings

Team standings/rankings will be posted for the U10-U16 divisions throughout the season as coaches report in to their commissioners with their win-loss records.


Tournament Schedule – 2019

JSL will host a 2-game end-of-season tournament.  Dates will not be known until early July – they will be posted here when they are finalized.  For a general estimate, once the regular season schedule is posted above, find the last game for any team in your division, reserve a few days after that for any potential late rain makeup games, and the tournament will follow after that.  All regular season and tournament games will be completed no later than 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.
