About NSLL


As a charter league of Little League International, Novato South Little League is a non-profit community organization. All board members and coaches are volunteers. Every penny collected by the league goes right back into it and must pass state auditing. However, our league could not survive on registration fees alone, and it’s our local community sponsors that we depend on to keep registration fees down.

We are always welcoming new board members to help run our league. It is the countless volunteer hours and donated resources that make our league run. A new board is selected every fall for the following league year. Please don't hesitate to reach out for more details.


Below is a general list of our league costs:


• Little League International Annual Membership Dues & Insurance
• Jerseys and Hats for the entire league of 450+ players and 100+ volunteer coaches. Unlike other little leagues in the area, we allow all kids to keep their jerseys.
