NTLL participates in District 27′s Training and Development league (a.k.a. TAD, Fall Ball, Winter Ball, or Sandlot League).
In this league, NTLL teams play against teams from other Little Leagues in the area. The TAD league is not competitive (records/standings are NOT tracked) and the coaches are encouraged to be on the field with the players. In this environment, players can get ready to “play at the next level” when the Spring Season rolls around.
The TAD league is a great opportunity for players to improve their skills or for new players to try Little League to see if they like it. Players are placed on a team based on their expected level for the next regular season. Information about signups will be posted on this website sometime near the end of the Spring Season. All players ages will be determined by using the 2014 Age Chart.
