In a recent news release, October 6, 2020, Washington State adjusted the criteria for athletic activities by classifying sports into risk categories and measured against particular county COVID-19 data. Good news that Baseball, Softball, and T-Ball are in the middle grouping, classified as Moderate Risk sports. Varying activities are allowed based on county data, specifically new case rates over the trailing two-week period and the percentage of positive tests. For the details please see the full release here.
This is very positive news, we will continue to monitor the available information, and ensure that NSBSA follows (or exceeds) all of the protocols so that we can maximize the activities available for our players and teams.
The numbers are ever changing and there is still a long way to go, but this announcement is a significant step for our league to resume playing games in 2021.
To Our NSB and Rainiers Community,
Like you, we remain heartbroken and angry at the injustice that is dividing our country. Like you, we mourn the lives of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery, Manuel Ellis and too many other Black Americans. Each of these lives is precious and each of these murders are shameful examples of the systemic and institutional racism deeply rooted in our country.
Silence is not an option right now. Racism continues to plague America. It is indefensible. It is unacceptable. It runs counter to everything we believe in. We know that to be silent is to be complicit. Therefore, NSB stands in solidarity to condemn violence against Black Americans. We support Black Lives Matter.
NSB thrives on its diversity. We are committed to adding our voice to the movement. We are committed to improving outreach to underserved communities. We are committed to doing better in fostering an environment where players and families feel valued for who they are and not how they look. We as a Board are committed to listening and learning.
The work does not end when the protests end. We will remain committed. We MUST remain committed.
Jordan Malloch & Josh Burgess

North Seattle Softball has been impacted by COVID-19, like all others in these unique times. In 2020, we were starting our third year since reinstituting the softball program and continuing to grow. There is strong interest for softball in the region and we are excited about the future of the sport. As the Softball Commissioner, Trisha Thompson, a former college pitcher and a terrific instructor, will grow and guide our program to new levels. We are very happy she is a part of North Seattle Softball community! Please reach out to her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any specific questions.
Once we are able to resume play, we look forward to building on what we have started by utilizing the tools that make North Seattle the place to play. Some of our distinguishing features are things like:
A player’s League Age determines which division they play in. For Baseball ages are determined by the players age as of 8/31. For Softball ages are determined by Birth Year.
