The 8 game season will start late August or early September. Teams registered through Dardenne Prairie will play their homes games at Dardenne Prairie Athletic Complex and will play a minimum of half their games at home; away games will be played at any of the cites listed above including Dardenne Prairie. Games will be played Monday through Friday at either 6:00 PM or 8:00 PM and game length can be found in the rule book below. There will be occasions where teams will play 2 games in one week. This league is preparation for the next spring season so it is recommended to play one age level higher than you did in the spring (ex. 8U in spring plays 9U in fall). This helps to prepare the kids for the new distances and rules they’ll see next year. Score/Standings will not be kept. To find your teams schedule or directions to the field you’re playing at visit the NHYBL website at www.quickscores.com/nhybl.
Practices for this league will begin the weekend of August 19th. Teams will be given 1 scheduled practice per week (1 hour) included with registration fee and those will be held on Saturday or Sunday only.
