Friday, February 8, 2013 • 12:41am
WEST ORANGE, NJ - Since 1959, The Mountain Top League has provided recreational sports programs for children of all levels in Baseball, Basketball, and In-House Soccer. The volunteer organization also offers competitive traveling soccer with the United Soccer Club.
Mountaintop is currently offering several registrations for spring sports:
Baseball Registration (Registration open now through March 1)
AA (ages 8-9)
Babe Ruth (ages 13-14-15) -
Coach Pitch (Age 7)
Majors (ages 10-11-12)
T-Ball (age 5-6) - Tuesday and Thursday
T-Ball (ages 5-6) - Monday/Wednesday
MTL might suggest that child play in a lower age league if it is determined that not doing so would pose a safety hazard to that child.
Any player ages 8 through 12 must attend a practice session (Dates TBD) to be evaluated! Every registered and evaluated child will be placed on a team. Those players who submit an application after teams are formed or do not attend a mandatory evaluation will be placed on a waiting list and may not be included on any roster.
Our new Spring Little Kickers Program is open to West Orange residents with children currently over the age of 4 and in PK or Kindergarten. The program will run very similarly as the Fall program with teams and parent-volunteers.
Choose from a Saturday or Sunday morning sessions for 8 weeks, both running from 10 a.m.-11 a.m. at Lower Redwood. The program starts on April 20 and ends on June 16. No session on Memorial Day Weekend, May 25-26.
Space is limited. Registrations close on March 8. Besides siblings, they are unable to honor specific requests for teammates or coach. Volunteer coaches are permitted to request 1 player besides their own child.
Registration Fee: $60 (no refunds). You child will receive a Jersey and shorts. The Spring uniform does not include socks or shin-guards. Visit Website
