Have a Ball

New for 2019! Softball teaches girls the importance of cooperation and teamwork at all ages.

All players learn game fundamentals, like catching, throwing, batting, defense and base running in a fun and supportive environment. Our leagues progress with age to keep the game fun at every level, with the following guidelines: 

  • T-Ball (coed) - players in Kindergarten-1st grade begin with a stable ball while learning the basic motions of hitting.
  • Coach Pitch - players in 1st-3rd grades transition to hitting a moving target.
  • Fast Pitch - players in 3rd-5th grade continue to improve their skills by hitting off an opposing player.

If your player is in a grade represented by multiple leagues, select the league that is the best fit for their skill level.

Online Registration for the 2019 season is now closed. Contact your Y for late registration availability. 

T-ball is available for girls and boys in Kindergarten-1st grade. Baseball is also available for boys.
