More exciting softball news….. Registration is opened up for an INSTRUCTIONAL SOFTBALL program for girls (ages 6-7 as of 12/31/19) for the Spring 2020 season.

This instructional softball program is designed to provide a positive experience for the younger players to learn the basics of softball in a non-competitive atmosphere including catching, throwing, fielding, hitting, positioning, and sportsmanship. This program does not play formal games but the girls will get to play informal intra-squad games in a relaxed coach-pitch environment. We plan to run the clinics in approximately 90 minute sessions on Saturdays for about 8 weeks from late April to early June.

For more information on this instructional program (6-7), minors softball (7-10), majors softball (9-12) or juniors softball (12-14) send an email to softball@skll.org and we’ll get back to you.

Tee Ball provides very basic introduction to baseball including positioning, hitting, fielding, throwing, catching, sportsmanship and the basic rules of baseball. Tee Ball instruction and games will be centered on the kids hitting off of fixed tees.
Instructional baseball provides an atmosphere for teaching/improving the basics of baseball in a non-competitive game setting including hitting a pitched ball, fielding, throwing, catching, base running, sportsmanship and knowledge of the basic rules of baseball. Instructional baseball is a coach-pitch league intended to prepare participants for Minors baseball, a player-pitch league. Baseball league age 5 and 6 year-old players must have played at least 1 year of T-ball and may be asked to attend a group evaluation prior to entry into the Instructional League.
Minors baseball provides a positive experience for the participants and introduces players to a higher level of play in preparation for graduation to little league Majors baseball. This includes a continued emphasis on learning the fundamentals of the game and instruction on the finer points and strategies of baseball. The goal of Minors is to develop players of different ages at different positions in preparation for majors in a more competitive atmosphere still while maintaining a high level of sportsmanship in a positive team environment. A player evaluation will be held for all minors registrants. It is mandatory for all 8 year old players and 9 year old players new to minors to be evaluated in order to be considered for placement on a minors team.
Majors baseball raises the level of competition for the players, while continuing the emphasis on player development. All 11 & 12 year olds will be registered as major players. All players registered for majors will be required to attend a player evaluation in order to be eligible to be drafted onto a majors team. This division will revert back to the bat rule as adopted within the 2020 Little League Rule Book Rule 1.10 and wood bats will not be mandatory for this division for 2020.
Juniors/Seniors baseball continues the emphasis on player development as the players experience the big diamond. These divisions travel to other towns to play.
Minor softball and Major softball follow the same principles as baseball but are for girls only. These divisions travel to other towns to play.
