Our Mission

The Northern Columbia Little League serves the children of northern Columbia County, New York who reside in the Ichabod Crane Central School District. NCLL offers baseball and softball programs for boys and girls. We seek, above all, to impart ideals of sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty, courage and respect for authority to the children of the community. It is our hope that players will learn through their participation in Little League Baseball values that will make them strong and happy children who grow up to be good, decent, healthy and trustworthy citizens.
