Rookies Softball


Rookies is the division for our youngest players, aged 6 - 8.  We do not keep score nor do we have team standings in the Rookies Softball Division.  Rather, we focus on learning the fundamentals and having fun.  For the first part of the season, coaches pitch to the girls.  Managers rotate positions for the girls, so that each player plays every position in the field.  The batting order used will be a “bat around” format in which each kid bats in every inning.  As we move later into the season, depending on the relative skill level of the girls, we may introduce “kid pitch” and start playing with outs, taking the game, slowly, to the next level.  

We put together a 10-13 game season that runs from February to mid-May.  Each game lasts for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes and usually takes place Saturday afternoons.  There are a few games on Sunday afternoons and we try to arrange one or two opportunities to play other little leagues.  Each time has a one hour practice on a weeknight, starting at 4:00, 5:00, or 6:00.   

Each season, the teams are assembled by the division commissioners.  We accept friend request and preferences for practice times.  

The most important goal for our Rookies players is for the girls to learn and have fun!
