Registration Opens for Summer-Fall Recreational Baseball & Softball

Effective June 26th, 2020, Montgomery County, PA has transitioned to the "Green" Phase of operation under the COVID-19 Global Pandemic.   Here at Nor-Gwyn we are also going Green...Green and Gold!  Youth Baseball is back, and Nor-Gwyn is re-opening!  We are offering an extended, combined Recreational/Inter-Community Fall Baseball season that will begin in mid-July and run into October.

While this season is quite different than previous years, we look forward to providing a safe recreational activity for the players. We must respect that Covid-19 is still around,.  The Nor-Gwyn Board has been working hard behind the scenes to bring our families a healthy and safe environment. Your safety is everyone's number one priority!

Stay Tuned for Softball Re-Opening News - Our Softball program is coordinating with other local leagues to form an inter-community program for Summer/Fall, starting practices/scrimmages in August with games in the Fall. More details will be coming soon. Stay tuned!

No T-Ball / Rookie Program  - Unfortunately, due to ongoing safety concerns and the ability to continue social distancing measures with our littlest ones, we will NOT offer a T-Ball/Rookie program this season.
