Minors Softball

8U (Minor) – Player Pitch + Machine Pitch Softball

8U softball division is for players league ages 7 and 8 (as of August 31, 2023). In this division the level of play advances to include player pitch (with machine pitch or coach pitch on ball 4), catching and base stealing with continued focus on the development of fundamentals, and fun.

This division uses a 10” RIF (reduced injury factor ball), and pitchers pitch from 30 feet from home plate.

Teams will practice 1 time per week and play 1 weekend game per week.

There will also be clinic opportunities such as weekly pitching clinics for players to attend.

8U teams may participate in USA Softball 8U games with nearby leagues.

West LA may field a spring Select and summer All Star team in the 8U division.

What is the Select Program?

Select is a USA Softball program that provides an opportunity for advanced players in each age group to participate in more competitive play. Select involves one extra activity per week, typically a game against a competitive team.

Select teams will be chosen through evaluations or an additional tryout. There may be additional costs involved with Select play.  Placement on a Select team does not mean the player (or coach) will be selected to a summer all-stars team.   

Spring Select is from January through March only.
