Recreation Program

Our Spring recreation softball program typically runs from early to mid April through the first week in June. We also offer a shorter Fall season for select age groups. Girls who meet the age (based on age as of Dec. 31st) and residency criteria may register regardless of their experience. Players are organized into teams within age divisions. The uniform (included in the registration fee) consists of a personalized jersey. Each player will need to provide a fielding glove, batting helmet (equipped with a face mask) and bat. At the AA, AAA and Majors levels, players are encouraged to wear a fielder’s mask. Parents help coach, manage teams, and prepare the fields for games. Each division will play games on Saturdays, one evening each week, and an occasional Sunday afternoon game. Parents that would like to coach or help out in any way should register through the same process the players are registered which will allow you to select your preference and notify the league.

Tee Ball (Ages 4 & 5)
T-ball is designed to acquaint beginners with basic skills of throwing, catching, fielding, base-running and hitting. The ball is hit off a tee allowing players to concentrate on the swing. Score is not kept, and all players play. 

Minors (Age 6)
Minors reinforces the skills learned in T-ball and introduces a pitched ball to the players. The coaches pitch the ball. Score is not kept, and all players play.

A Division (Ages 7 & 8)
A Division players hit pitches thrown by a coach (2nd year pitchers are allowed to pitch in the last 6 games of the season). The emphasis is on reinforcing and developing basic skills. As in T-ball and Minors, a safety softball is used.  Girls playing pitcher are required to wear a helmet with a face mask OR a fielder’s mask.

AA Division (Ages 9 & 10)
A small (11″) standard regulation softball is used. Players pitch, with a coach pitching after four balls up until the last 6 games of the season. Teams are selected by draft. Games are officiated by youth umpires, often upper-division players. Girls playing any infield position are encouraged to wear mouth guards or fielder’s masks during play. Girls playing pitcher are required to wear a helmet with a facemask OR a fielding mask.

AAA Division (Ages 11 & 12) and Majors (Ages 13 - 17)

Teams at the AAA and Majors division play an inter-league schedule with games played against other local leagues. Girls playing any infield position are encouraged to wear mouth guards or fielder’s masks during play.
