The NEBAS Fall League will start on Sunday, Sept 12th and continue through Sunday, October 31st. 8 game regular season. Top four teams will make the playoffs on November 7th and November 14th. Town and team trophies will be awarded to the top two teams. Registration ends on Wed, Sept 1st.

The NEBAS league is a SUNDAY only league. Due to the many fall sports programs that take place each year, we are OPEN to flexibility of moving games to be played during the week IF BOTH TEAMS are willing and able. (We also understand that many teams might not want to play on Sunday October 31st (Halloween).

PLAYOFFS: First round playoffs start Sunday, November 7th. Top four teams qualify for playoffs. Seed 1 vs Seed 4 and Seed 2 vs Seed 3 will play. Winners of this first round of playoffs play on Sunday, November 14th for the Championship. Top two teams get individual and team trophies.

Please note when grading your teams – we have changed the process. There are now only two options. “Weak/Average”, or “Strong/Average”. PLEASE grade your team appropriately. This should alleviate teams being placed in the wrong divisions playing against the wrong competition.

URGENT: REGISTER YOUR TEAMS CORRECTLY. The league level that you are entering your teams is based upon NEXT YEAR’S age cutoffs.
Summer 10u teams, become FALL 11u teams.
Summer 12u teams, become Fall 13u 50×70 teams
We are offering 50×70 ONLY for Summer 12u, Fall 13u teams.

The home team is responsible for lining up the umpires for their home games. One (1) umpire for 8u~12u games. Two (2) umpires for 13 u and 14u games. The umpire fees are paid by the one team (every team will have 4 home and 4 away games) and umpires should be paid on the field. If any town needs to pay the umpire by voucher etc., please review this with the umpire assignors that you choose. This should NOT be a problem. The list of umpire assignors is available Nebas website.

Game times on the website will ALL be listed as TBA on Sundays and home teams will be responsible for scheduling the actual game time with their opponents.

Game results and standings will be updated weekly. This website can ONLY be as good as the information provided, so managers of winning teams, please send in game results immediately.
