Started in 2004, NCTB is now the premiere baseball tournament company for Northern California.
NORTHERN CALIFORNIA TOURNAMENTS
NCTB Baseball is the largest provider of youth baseball tournaments in Northern California, hosting over 5000 teams in 2015. NCTB has been running tournaments since 2005, and believes passionately that baseball is the greatest game, and that tournaments are the most fun and rewarding format.
NCTB is also the Regional Director for the USA Baseball National Team Identification Series for the Northern California, Southern California, Southwest and Northwest regions. We have run the Northern California NTIS since its inception in 2008 and have had over two dozen players selected to US National Teams.
In addition to running tournaments, NCTB also sanctions events run by some other directors, such as River City Travel Ball and Velocity Baseball. For information on how to have NCTB sanction one of your events, please contact us.
NCTB is an educational supporter of MLB's Pitch Smart program, and is working towards being a Select Compliance Organization. That means some of our events will be in line with the Pitch Smart pitch count guidelines.
USA BASEBALL ONLINE EDUCATION
NCTB is also an educational supporter of USA Baseball's Online Education Center. This is a tremendous free resource offering videos and classes for Parents, Players, Coaches and Umpires. USA Baseball Online Education provides online training courses and programs focused on key aspects of the game of baseball. It is a portal to baseball education that can be used to better yourself and others, both on and off the field.
