Once the New Years Eve ball drops, all of the 2019 holidays are behind us and school resumes, what more do the kids have to look forward to? Well, simply put…. baseball!
Now is the time to register for North Springs Little League for the 2020 season of America’s favorite pastime.
North Springs Little League, which hosts players from the north/northwest sector of Coral Springs, had an impressive showing around the all-star tournament circuit throughout the state this past season, and looks to continue its successes for the upcoming season.
North Springs will celebrate its 25th birthday this year, and with much anticipation for another fun season of play planned for boys and girls ages 4-16, President Jason Rosoff is optimistic that his league’s milestone will be nothing short of wonderful.
“To be a part of the 25th Anniversary at North Springs Little League means a lot to me. While young compared to some of the more established leagues throughout the country, we have a postseason history that I would put up against any league,” says Jason, who enters his fourth year of presidency for NSLL.
Aside from attracting close to 400 players last Spring, from those in T-ball to Seniors, North Springs sent four all star teams (9/10s, 11s, Majors, Juniors) to venture out into the state over this past summer with the hopes of coming home with some championship titles. It was the 11-year-old all stars from the league who came home with the hardware and earned a Southeast Regional Tournament of State Champions berth in North Carolina.
“The dedication from the start of the regular season of the coaches doing what they do to improve all of our players, I cannot stress how appreciative I am,” adds Jason. “But the players… these kids step up their games when the time comes, and they know how to represent the ‘North Springs’ on the front of their jerseys.”
Upon the onset of the season when registration opened in the Fall to when post season play concludes sometime in the summer, North Springs is the second home for all levels of play. From the more instructional, developmental divisions of play for the younger players to the older and more experienced, competitive ones, every child gets the chance to play the game at North Community Park.
“I hope to bring this game of ours to more and more families in our community. I don’t need to tell anyone the values gained by kids playing sports; they are well-documented and truly a benefit to our players, but there is just something different about being at North Springs,” adds Jason. “The worries of the day just seem to slip away while at the park – watching the kids play during the games and maybe even more importantly, the post-game games that develop off the field- it’s just so great to see.”
Jason says he not only likes seeing the kids participate in physical activity but it gets electronics out of their hands for a few hours. He concludes…
“I look forward to another fantastic season; the 25th will certainly be another special one at North Springs.”
