An early bird discount of $10 if registration is done BEFORE July 31 is being offered. This allows you to still register your player at last years costs. Cost after on Aug 1 and before Sept 1 is $195. After that time a $35 late fee will be charged. Also, we will no longer be able to accept American Express as payment during online registration.
All spring players of 2016 return to their systems. New players and rising 13 year olds will be assigned by a draft. Player Evaluations for new players have been scheduled for August 28 (Sunday) at noon at Stratton Woods Park, weather permitting. Avoid the late fee and sign up early and save $10
Once the County officially assign fields a game schedule will be issued. We currently expect to hold in-house games on weekdays and play against several non-NFC teams on Saturdays.

Babe Ruth is an international organization promoting youth baseball. We are the local chapter for 13 - 15 year olds. Our territory stretches from RT 7 to RT 28. Traditionally our players come from Chantilly Little League, Herndon Cal Ripken (HOYB) and Reston Little League but we accept all players including those with little or no experience in playing baseball. We form teams locally and play on local fields. Also we play teams from Babe Ruth leagues in Fairfax County. We have Allstars, Travel and System teams.
System teams are like the farm teams for the Major leagues. Players play at the level where their abilities are best suited. There are three levels: Prep level where inexperienced players become acclimated to the 90 foot field with other players with similar abilities; Alliance level for those preparing for high school level baseball. Babe Ruth level for those at the high school level of play. Players can move between levels as their skill level dictates so as to match competitive skilled players.
Travel teams allow for extra games for those wanting more baseball at a competitive setting. Allstars are for the best players who will represent the league during district and higher levels. Last year's teams won one level and were runnerup at two other levels.
