for a FREE Pitching, Hitting, Fielding, and Base Running Clinic.

Opening Day

  • Our 2nd Annual "Opening Day" Celebration was a big success. The West View VFW was packed with NHAA familes, friends, and players as they toasted to a great start of another exciting season.

Spring Baseball/Softball Registrations

  • For the 4th straight year we've continued to grow, for the 4th straight year we've set a new registration record. Over 610 boys and girls have sign up to play the 2015 Spring Season!

North Hills Coaches Clinic

  • Hosted by NH School Varsity Coach Randy Miller, his staff, and players, this clinic gave us a peak inside one of their typical practices, and the coaches explained to our coaches the hows and why's behind their drills. Our goal is to make our program consistant with their program, from beginning to end. A great turnout, a great clinic, and we're already looking forward to next year!

Baseball Orientation

  • Our first ever League Orientation drew many Beginner, Instructional, Minor, and Bronco parents out to the Ross Elementary Gym to hear what to expect from the age level their son will be participating in this year. Many topics were covered including game rules, the team selection process, fields, schedules, as well as the Warpath. We hope this is yet another way to help us provide your kids with the best experience as possible.

2014 Highlights


  • 44th Annual T.R.Y. Tournament - 44 years ... the same 4 teams
    • Although North Hills didn't bring home the trophy this year, they played their hearts out and left with a whole new perspective of what "it" is about, and realize how much it's a privilege to have the ability to play the game of baseball.
    • Congrats to our friends up the street, Ingomar, who won it all.
  • North Hills Nights!
    • The NHAA family got together every Thursday from April thru July at the West View VFW. Parents and players were invited to come down, meet each other and socialize, teams were invited to come down and celebrate that week's big win, that hard fought loss, or that exciting Beginner/Instructional League tie.
  • "Pitchin' with Hitchan Fast-pitch Pitching Clinic
    In this 2-hour clinic, North Hills Varsity Pitcher Megan Hitchan taught the girls the basic fundamentals and mechanics of pitching fast-pitch softball. We hope this is one of many Fast-pitch Clinics we host throughout the entire year.
  • Baseball Awards and All-Star Weekend
    The boys were back in town at The Bart. The morning started off unfortunately like the season began ... with rain cancelling the Instructional League All-Star Game. The Parade of Teams and Trophy Presentation was first up, which included the Player Recognition and Gift Presentation to our 12 y.o. Baseball Players. An exciting Minor League All-Star Game was next on the agenda followed by a Bronco League All-Star Game for the ages. The night ended with a dramatic Minor League Championship, which saw the Rochester Red Wings prevail over the Louisville Bats and celebrate as 2014 Minor League Champions! The Bronco League Championship was held the next day, and the Mets defeated last year's champion Cardinals to take home the 2014 Bronco League Crown. The night ended with the re-scheduled Instructional League All-Star Game .. under the lights!
  • Softball Awards and All-Star Celebrations
    Our girls took to Bartlett Field for the Parade of Teams, Trophy Presentation, and the Player Recognition and Gift Presentation to our 12 y.o. Softball Players. Next up was the traditional, and always exciting, Skills Competition for the 6U and 12U age groups. The girls competed in base-running, softball toss, and slickest infield. As the hot day cooled down, the fans on 'The Hill' were treated to a great Instructional League (8U) All-Star Game ... under the lights. Nobody walked away empty handed .. or hungry!
  • BRONCO League - Memorial Day Tournament
    This was a good weekend at The Bart because there were a lot of baseballs flying over the outfield fence. Our boys caught fire early on and brought home the 1st place trophy.
  • Palomino - Memorial Day Tournament
    Beautiful weather set the stage at Herb Field, as the 9th Annual Memorial Day Wooden Bat Bash took place. Our boys fought hard but it was the Kiski Caveliers and the Worthington Mustangs who made it to Monday, with Kiski taking home the 1st place prize.
  • NHAA Player Picture Day
    Another fabulous day for pictures at Ross Elementary Football Field. Thanks to all of the players, parents, and Future Stars Photography for once again running a smooth operation.
  • Baseball Coaches Clinic
    40+ Managers, Assistant Coaches, and interested parents were in attendance as NH School Baseball Coach Randy Miller, his coaching staff, and the entire Varsity/Junior Varsity team donated their time to walk through how to propertly conduct a practice. Plan your practice .. practice your plan!
  • Baseball and Softball Player Combines
    The boys and girls were put through various drills to test their fielding, hitting, batting, throwing, and running so the coaches could evaluate and rosters selected.
  • North Hills Comedy Night
    Over 240 people joined us to get 2014 started out right. With good friends, good food, and laughter with local comedians Gene Collier, Sean Collier, and Chuck Kreiger. The event was held at the West View VFW and was a huge success, complete with Silent Auctions and Door Prizes.
