Shelton National offers baseball and softball programs for the following age groups.

The starting dates listed for the 2019 Programs are subject to change. 
Most divisions will start practicing in late March- early April (weather permitting). Once the season starts, there will be two games per week usually on different days each week. Weekday games will begin at 5:45 or 6:00 PM depending on the division. Weekend game times will vary. Managers select their own practice days and times so these will vary for each team and division but are typically twice per week prior to the start of the season. Once the season begins, scheduled practices stop and the manager may call a practice based on field availability.
Most divisions will do a small amount of traveling playing teams from other leagues.

Most programs run through the end of June and play two games per week. Typically, once during the week and one on Saturday. This may vary within each division.


Players will need their own glove, bat, baseball(white) or softball (grey) pants. The league will supply a uniform jersey and a hat. Helmets will be supplied if your child doesn't have their own. Major divisions will receive socks. Baseball shoes are recommend for all divisions. (Tee ball can use sneakers if so desired)

Tee Ball players will receive a helmet or baseball pants as part of the registration fee. This can be picked up at Blanchette Sporting Goods in Shelton.
