1. When is your season?
The Little League® season typically begins with practices in early/mid-March. Regular season games begin in mid-April and run to mid-June. All-Star teams begin practice in late June and can play into late July/early Aug.

2. Where are your practices?
 The practice schedule is up to the individual team coaches. Northern Lights Little League will do its best scheduling practice at our complex. Typically, coaches hold practice anywhere from two to three times a week prior to the beginning of regular season games. Once games begin, practices usually fill in during the week. When are your games? Games at all levels are held Monday through Friday at 6pm, or Saturday between 9am and 5pm.

No games will be scheduled during Memorial weekend in May.
