None of the following are allowed in the park:

This includes players and spectators. 

  • Smoking or tobacco products of any kind, including vaping.
  • Alcohol of any type.
  • No Metal Cleats allowed for any age divisions.

Please help us keep the dugouts and fields clean so that we can continue to use this park. Park Staff and Nations Staff will check dugouts during and after each game. 

Tournament Apparel and Souvenirs: NW Nations will have t-shirts, hoodies, beanies, caps, necklaces etc. available to purchase. Cash or credit card accepted.

Weather: We will make every effort to play all tournament games, we want to play them as much as you do! If we were to experience weather that was determined by the field staff, tournament director and umpires to be severe enough to pose a player safety concern, we will delay games until conditions improve, cancel games or cancel the entire tournament if necessary. The ultimate decision on whether we can play or continue to play is made by the parks department. 

Unfortunately, those playing the first games of the day are at a disadvantage because we may not have the information on the field status updated before you must leave. Sometimes it is a "game time" decision. PLEASE CONSIDER ALL GAMES PLAYABLE UNLESS UPDATES INDICATE OTHERWISE.

We prefer to make weather related decisions the day of the scheduled games just in case the fields improve more than expected. Some times the parks department will cancel on Friday if the fields are obviously not going to be playable on Saturday. In that case we will notify all teams by e-mail as soon as we know.

NW Nations Weather Line: (503) 799-5737: If we happen to be subject to extreme weather conditions this weekend, you can call the NW Nations Weather line for updates. Please restrict the calls to one person per team so that everyone can get through if needed. Initial updates are recorded at 6:45 AM each day, subsequent updates will be added as needed.

Game locations: All games are being played at the North Clackamas Park Complex this weekend. Directions can be found at the bottom of this page.

Parking: Parking is allowed in designated parking areas only.

RV Parking: Sorry, overnight parking is not allowed at the park.

Game Score Updates: We will be updating game scores throughout the day on the tournament app and on our website as games are completed. Please click here for updated game scores.

Sunday Bracket Schedule: As seeding games are completed we will be placing teams into brackets for Sunday on the tournament app and on our website. You will be able to find the Sunday game times by clicking here.

Scheduling: NW Nations makes every attempt to keep the tournament on schedule, on occasion due to circumstances this is not possible. Directors reserve the right to change any game time, playing field or dates or to make other changes necessary to conduct the tournament.

When circumstances arise where we can start a game early throughout the day, teams must be prepared to start up to 30 minutes before their scheduled game time, this is to keep the tournament moving along at all times.  

NW Nations Baseball expects good sportsmanship from players, coaches and spectators before, during, and after all events.

Team Check-in: Please check in prior to your first game at the tournament tent and receive your tournament packet.

Birth Certificates: Please make sure that you have copies of birth certificates for all players with you at the fields.

Dugouts are not assigned; the first team to arrive has choice of dugouts.

Warm-ups: The park will open at 7:30 AM both Saturday and Sunday. Teams playing the first games of the day can warm up on the outfield of the field that they will be playing on.

Do not plan on warming up on the fields during the day as we will make every effort to stay on schedule. No taking infield allowed for tournament play.

There is an open area behind fields 3 and 4 that teams can warm up on, it is not a huge area so please be considerate in sharing space with other teams.

Line-Up Cards: Each team is expected to present a line-up card to the plate umpire at the pregame conference.

Game Balls: NW Nations will be supplying all game balls.

Metal Cleats: No metal cleats allowed in the 12u division.

Pitching Charts: Pitching Charts will be in your coach packet that you will receive at check-in. Please keep track of how many outs each of your pitchers throws and turn your chart in at the end of each day.

Post Game: At the end of your game please be considerate and vacate your dugout promptly. Team meetings need to take place outside the fences!
