Join us as we launch the conversation about mental health and the role coaches, parents and sports administrators can play in supporting and encouraging youth athletes as they cope with the struggles and pressures of their early development. Come and hear from renowned local experts as they help adults who work with student athletes:
· Understand the pressures facing student athletes in 2019
· Recognize the warning signs for potential youth in distress
· Guide athletes to available local resources for assistance
Over the past couple of years we have sent out a CALL FOR COACHES to help the local High School baseball programs fill vacancies. We have had requests from local HS coaches to do the same again this year. Please see the vacancies below and reach out to me if you or anyone else is interested in any of these positions and I can put you in touch with the proper coach.

The current bat policy will remain in effect through Dec. 2019.
13u - 14u
NVTBL will allow USA, USSSA and BBCOR approved bats. NVTBL does recommend that 14u (8th grade) players begin the transition to BBCOR bats no later than the spring/summer of their 8th grade season.
8u - 12u
NVTBL will allow both USA and USSSA approved bats. The survey responses were essentially split equally at 8u - 12u. We have a large number of teams who participate in tournaments that allow USSSA bats. Ultimately we wanted to allow our coaches the most flexibility to make decisions that they feel helps their individual players develop as baseball players. 8u - 12u coaches may still agree before the game to both use only USA bats if that is only what their players use.

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.
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
