7 crippling parenting behaviors that keep children from growing into leaders
Players who LIVE or ATTEND SCHOOL in boundary can play LL baseball in that boundary
In an effort to accommodate for Little Leaguers to play with their classmates, and ease the burden on parents and guardians, Little League has amended its residency requirements to allow children to play in the local league whose boundaries where they attend school is located. To verify enrollment, parents will need to bring an official school document, such as a report card or school enrollment form, confirming enrollment in the school for the current academic year, dated before October 1, 2013.
Little League is always looking for more ways to give all children the opportunity to have the best Little League experience possible, said Patrick Wilson, Little League Senior Vice President of Operations and Program Development. This new rule will provide more flexibility for families to participate in the leagues that best fits their children.
NWLL has posted a list of Schools within the NWLL boundary on our Eligibility page.
Team photos are now available online.
Please encourage your players and parents to take a look!
Thanks for another great season,
A recent article in The Bristol Press by PAUL ANGILLY covers the history of D.C. in the Little League Eastern Regional Tournament for 11/12s, and mentions NWLL’s victory over New Jersey in 2012.

NWLL is not always about winning and losing, it is really about helping our kids and celebrating the accomplishments of our players.
NWLL 9/10s won the DC City Championship and represented District 3 in the Maryland State 9/10 Little League tournament in July.
In the first game, our kids played Thurmont MD (eventual MD State runner-up), but lost 3-5. In the second game, our kids lost a very competitive 5-6 contest against Easton MD.
We wish to thank our coaches and parents for guiding a special group of outstanding players to boundaries far beyond Washington DC. We’d like to offer a special congratulations to the NWLL 9/10 team, your sportsmanship and skill show that Northwest belongs with the best!
The NW 9/10 year old team scored a thrilling 9-8 victory over Capitol Hill on July 9th to secure the DC 9/10 Little League city championship!
Congratulations to the kids as they now move on to represent District 3 in the Maryland State Little League 9/10 Tournament.

Tucker Myers and Daniel Piho of the NWLL Blue Claws T-Ball team, along with top t-ball prospect Jack Burton, held a lemonade stand this summer in NW DC. The boys prepared the homemade lemonade themselves, squeezing each lemon by hand, and braved the DC heat to sell their product.
From the net proceeds, each boy chose to donate 25% of their earnings to a charity of their choice. Not surprisingly, the boys selected Little League as their charity, and a parent/coach sent the check off to Northwest Washington Little League on June 28. A huge THANKS to the boys ! Hope to see you t-ball financiers in the fall!
