Minors (Instructional) Softball (Ages 5-8)
“A” Softball / T-Ball
Ages 5-6
$180
“A”/T-ball softball is the first level of our softball program. “A”/T-ball is geared toward teaching sound softball fundamentals such as proper throwing, fielding and batting techniques. Girls typically play at this level for two years. The “A”/T-ball program starts kids on a tee and introduces them to coach-pitched balls when they’re ready. Kids play in all of the defensive innings, rotating positions each inning, and will bat in all innings of a game. “A”/T-ball uses a 10” safety (squishy) ball.

  • AGE: Your child should be 5 years old by Dec 31, 2016 to participate. Most girls who play “A”/T-Ball softball are Kindergarteners and 1st graders, with a few older preschool kids.
  • TEAMS: Teams will have 6-8 players.
  • PRACTICES: Teams typically practice 1-2X per week until games begin. Once games begin there will be one game and one practice per week. Practices begin mid-late March.
  • GAMES: Typically teams will play 8-10 games during the season. Games are 3 innings and typically last 1-1 1/2 hours. Games are played from mid-April through early June.
  • VOLUNTEERS: Parent participation is necessary on many levels from Coaching, Field Preparation, Team parent, etc.

Majors Fastpitch (Competitive) Softball (Ages 9-14)
“AAA” Softball
Ages 9-10
$250
“AAA” softball is the first level of our competitive fastpitch softball programs. Players will expand on the skills taught at “AA”. This is the first year of “kid-pitch”. To keep the games moving we use a modified kid-pitch approach. Kids pitch until the batter gets a hit, strikes out or the pitcher pitches four balls. After four balls, a coach will pitch the rest of the at bat. Pitch distance is 35 feet. An 11″ yellow optic safety ball is used, unless Interlock rules require a standard 11″ optic yellow softball. On defense, players will still experience the infield and outfield, but coaches may start focusing girls on certain areas of the field; for example, middle infield.

  • AGE: Players must be 9 years old by Dec 31, 2016 to participate. 8-year olds are welcome to try out for “AAA”, but there will be a limited number of slots allocated for 8-year olds based on registrations.
