National League

ANNOUNCEMENT

The Lees Summit Baseball Association is excited to offer our Spring Training League, which is a revamped version of our competitive National League program.  

Teams that participate in the Spring Training League will receive practice field space at Legacy Park, plus a schedule of 11 games against other competitive teams of the same age and competitive level, plus will have the option to participate at a discount in competitive tournaments offered by Triple Crown Sports.  

Each team in the Spring Training League will play a total of 11 games.  Those games will be played over three weekends, as follows: March 20-21 (3 games), March 27-28 (4 games), and April 17-18 (4 games.  Additionally, teams who register for our Spring Training League will receive two practice field times per week (one during the week and one during the weekend) in March, and one practice field time per week (weeknights only) from April 1 through April 15.  

The focus of the Spring Training League is DEVELOPMENT.  There are no trophies or prizes for the winner.  The goal of the Spring Training League is to help teams build up players’ arms early in the season in a pitch count controlled environment and to develop players at secondary and third positions, while getting in game reps.  There is no other program like this in the Kansas City metro area.

There are two different registration options for this program.  Teams can sign up for the Spring Training League, which includes the practice time and 11 games, or teams can sign up for our Extended Spring Training Program, which includes the practice time, the 11 Spring Training League games, plus entry in two Triple Crown Tournaments.  With the three game guarantees (weather permitting) in these tournaments, the Extended Spring Training League will provide teams with a minimum of 17 games.

Registration Fees

Spring Training League:  The registration fee for the Spring Training League is $1,350 per team, regardless of age. 

Extended Spring Training League: The registration fee for the Extended Spring Training League is as follows:

9U-12U: $2,550

13U-14U: $2,600

These rates include gate fees charged by Triple Crown.  By signing up for the Extended Spring Training League, each team saves $100 compared to signing up for the Spring Training League and two Triple Crown tournaments separately.
