Background Checks

Starting Fall 2019, all Head and Asst. coaches along with others who come into contact with players must have a background check that was run no earlier than November 15th, 2018.  These has to be done by September 1, 2019.  This has been mandatory for Fairfax County coaches and will now be mandatory for all NVTBL coaches and administrators.  A federal law is in the pipeline and we want to make sure that everyone is compliant.  

NVTBL has secured an arrangement with USA Baseball to provide a low cost option for background checks (only $6).  If you have already done a background check after 11/15/18 and can provide the documentation, that will suffice.  We will be sending out the USA Baseball background check option and also follow-up with additional specifics. NVTBL wants to notify everyone now so that you can start to prepare a plan within your organizations and teams.  


NVTBL's updated time limits for ALL AGES

All games are now no new inning 1 hour and 50 minutes.

A reminder that there is never a drop dead time limit for any NVTBL games.

All umpire pricing will stay the same for 2020.

EDU Podcast- SEASON 3!

NVTBL Team Workshops

NVTBL is offering a new Baseball Education based initiative for this off-season.  This initiave is for teams and it will be a game changer for your team and your players.  Ron Tugwell and Rob Hahne have been running similar workshops for teams we coached over the past 20 years.  They are very well received and one of the best things we have done.  NVTBL's Professional Advisory Committee comprised of Head HS Coaches, College Coaches and former Pro Players has decided to offer this to all NVTBL teams this fall/winter.  There are limited date offerings and each workshop allows only 2 teams to participate to keep the sessions small.

 

TEAM- PLAYER DEVELOPMENT / LEADERSHIP WORKSHOPS (parents encouraged to attend)

-  Academics

-  Social / Leadership / Life Lessons

-  Player Development Plan- getting 2% better each day

-  Mental Approach-  Hitting / Pitching / Defense

-  Playing w/ Confidence / Aggressive Approach

-  What it takes to play HS Baseball (ages 8u - 14u)

-  What it takes to play College Baseball (ages 15u - 18u)

-  Q and A

-  Handout Packets included for each player

 

TEAM WORKSHOP REGISTRATION

You can register your entire team at the link below.  It is $50 per team which comes out to be less than $2 pp when you include parents and coaches.  That basically covers our cost to run the event with handouts included.  We will take 2 teams for each Workshop offered.  Each workshop runs 75 - 90 minutes.  Players, coaches and parents should bring something to write with and write on.

Premier Showcase League PSL


The Premier Showcase League (PSL) is a division of the Northern Virginia Travel Baseball League (NVTBL) 16u - 17u.  The PSL was created to provide elite level competition for high school players looking to play baseball at the next level.  We have developed a better system to support our local programs/teams while saving local families thousands of dollars in travel expenses.  Programs can put in a request to join this premier league within NVTBL.

Why PSL?

Are you tired of:
-  Traveling 100, 200, 300, 500+ miles to tournaments where you never see a College Coach
-  Spending thousands of dollars each season on gas, food, lodging, and more…
-  Dividing up your family on weekends as you and your child travel to another tournament
-  Playing weak teams locally
​-  Not having enough knowledge about the recruiting process until it is too late
-  Feeling like the program fees for your team are being wasted on excessive tournament fees
​-  Paying upwards of $50 for gate fees to watch your child play in a tournament
