To all baseball players league ages 16-18 (birthdates in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2004 if you want to play as a 15 year old swing player) from the Herndon, Chantilly, and Reston areas:
The Northern Fairfax County (NFC) Senior league is open for registration at www.chantillyyouth.org. Our fee is less than the cost of a new bat! Registration fees cover uniforms, team equipment, and umpire fees (the vast majority of expenses). A late fee may apply if you register after the established cutoff date. This is an outstanding value for the price. We play competitively against other Senior Babe Ruth teams in the Northern Virginia area. Every league has a core of high school players and talented baseball enthusiasts. So, bring out your friends and have some fun!
Our players typically come from the following high schools and their feeder schools: Chantilly HS, Oakton HS, Westfield HS, Herndon HS, South Lakes HS, Paul VI HS, Flint Hill HS, and other private schools. Neighboring areas (such as South Riding and Sterling) without a Senior Babe Ruth league can also join us.

SPRING SEASON: We will start general league practices in April for all registered players and will break into teams for team practices by early May if the registration totals are near completion. We hope to use the April practices for player skill building, game situation knowledge building, and player assessments. High school players may participate in the early practices if your coach approves. Spring teams will form in May and start to play games around the middle of May. Full schedule of games typically start when the high school season ends.
Our season will include games played against Sr. Babe Ruth teams from other leagues in Northern Virginia, including Greater Fairfax, Vienna, FallsChurch/Annandale, Springfield, Arlington, Manassas, Haymarket, and Greater Loudoun. Our schedule should include between 15 and 18 games. Typically there will be two games during the week and one on the weekend (usually Saturday). Rainouts will be rescheduled if possible and may be played on Sunday.
ALL-STAR SEASON: Our All-Star season will pick-up immediately at the end of the regular season. All-Star practices/evaluations may be conducted prior to the end of the regular spring season. Players from each of our teams will be considered for the All-Star roster.
Players must register for the Spring Season by May 30th to guarantee eligibility for All-Stars, even if you can't start playing until your high school team finishes in June.
FALL SEASON: We also will conduct a fall league season. Fall league registration will be conducted over the summer and teams will form by the end of August, general and team practices will start after players are notified, and games will start play around the first week in September. The season will end by the first week in November. Our fall league schedule typically includes about 14-18 games, including games against teams from the other Northern VA SR Babe Ruth leagues. Typically there will be one game during the week and one on the weekend. One practice per week is also typical.
This is a great opportunity for rising 16s to develop skills and get used to playing with the older guys in the league.
WINTER CAMP SEASON: Our NFC Senior Division has sponsored an indoor Winter Camp starting in January and ending by March. Starting in 2019, the Winter Camp will be conducted in the CYA Fieldhouse. The camp is open to all players from Little League age through 19. You do not have to have played in our league to participate in the camp. Softball players are welcome to participate in the camp. Registration is available via the CYA Registration link.
Coaches and Volunteers: Please contact us or register online if you are interested in coaching or volunteering in other roles. All of our coaches are required to complete Babe Ruth coaches training as well as other training in support of the SafeSport Act (see Volunteer link). We are also in need of volunteers for concessions, field maintenance, announcers, score keepers, tournament director, and fundraising.
