Welcome to NELLS Prep League Page

Ages 6 to 8 years old. Six year olds may play in the prep division if they have prior experience. An 11 inch soft softball is used for safety purposes. This is a coach pitch division playing under modified rules to encourage learning of both defensive skills and hitting skills.  Teaching of fundamental skills as well as the fun of playing softball is the goal. Most games are played at Brookside fields although some games could be played at Northcrest and Homestead fields. Prep players will begin practicing in early April with their season ending by June 30th. NELLS will provide a shirt and batting helmets. Although, we highly recommend players use their own helmet for sanitary purposes.

Help Us Help Them.  Get Involved In NELLS

At NELLS we rely on a devoted collection of adult volunteers to help ensure that the league remains structured and runs smoothly.  We are always looking for responsible and enthusiastic parents, family members, and friends to manage, support, and coordinate our teams, facilities, and activities.  As a volunteer, you should have a keen interest in the safety, well-being, and overall development of all our girls. 

All parents of children involved in NELLS are strongly encouraged to volunteer. As a parent, volunteer, you have the opportunity to spend quality time with your daughter in a safe, fun-filled environment. Oftentimes, parent and child social lives parallel each other. Volunteering allows your life and your child’s life to intersect on common ground, with shared interests and goals.
