The KWBA fields a team that is entered into The Northern Lights Baseball Association (NLBA). The NLBA is a cooperative program sponsored by several neighborhood communities of Chicago and the north suburbs. The Association is designed primarily for player ages 15-17 in the Colt level and 18 and above in the Palomino level. Play begins the first weekend in June and proceeds until the end of July. Games will be played primarily on Saturdays and Sundays, but there may be some Friday games as well.
While this is a highly competitive league, all players will be offered a roster spot if they register prior to the deadline. The KWBA does not conduct evaluations for the New Trier Colt and Palomino teams, but will try to honor player requests to be on a team with their friends while also dividing the teams as evenly as possible (based on prior knowledge and information provided by parents/coaches in the New Trier community). Generally, players who have a medium to high skill level have the best experience.
Note: While the KWBA creates the teams that we enter in this league, we do not create the rules or schedules under which it is run.
KWBA is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, all volunteer organization that creates a fun, safe, community environment for boys and girls to play baseball, build character, learn sportsmanship, develop skills and make friends.
