Division Information

Instructional Division

This division is for our youngest players just starting out.  We use fun drills to teach the fundamentals of hitting, running, fielding, and throwing while introducing the basics of the game.  Hitting during the games will be off a tee.

Instructional Program Summary

10 Week Instructional Program

8U Division

This division bridges the gap between Instructional and 10U that is designed to transition players from hitting off a tee to gaining experience and confidence hitting a live ball. The players will be introduced to some of the additional rules and situations of softball. Games will have an umpire. Pitching will be done by coaches with the intent of transitioning to player pitching as their skills are developed. 11 inch fastpitch softballs will be used.

10U Division

This is a competitive division where players will do the majority of the pitching from a 35 foot mound with an 11 inch fastpitch softball.  Coaches will pitch as necessary to keep the games moving.  We introduce additional facets of the game and situational strategies while continuing to build on fundamentals. 

12U Division

This is our highest competitive division where the pitching distance is 40 feet and a standard size 12 inch fastpitch softball is used.  We focus on fine tuning the players’ understanding of the game at a more advanced level.
