Beginners Softball

2024 Spring Beginners Softball

Beginners Softball League
Beginners Softball is for Kindergarten, First grade and Second grade players ages 5, 6 or 7. This is the next step up from Tee Ball for softball players. A fun atmosphere is maintained while working on skills. No scores or standings are recorded. It is a fun instructional league with emphasis on continued skill development. Batters will hit against coaches pitching to them. Players will learn to hit a moving ball, assist in a putout at a base and play with most of the basic Little League Softball rules. Players should feel comfortable with a ball thrown or hit to them and be able to protect themselves with their glove. Sessions will be combined practices and games on Saturdays. There may be opportunities for an additional practice during the week and potentially games with other surrounding Little League teams on weekends (schedules and team availability pending).

Some important dates to keep in mind for the 2023 season:
·      Mandatory Coaches Clinic – March 9, 2024
·      Spring Cleanup Date – March 9, 2024 (rain date March 16)

Softball League w/ Robbinsville
Last year we had a successful season combining some softball levels with Robbinsville Little League (RLL) as neither league had enough girls for a competitive season. Both LLs are hopeful that we will both have enough girls to keep the leagues separate however we are already planning should that not be the case to combine at individual levels again. We will be assessing registration during registration period so if you are interested, please sign up as soon as possible so we can plan accordingly.

Volunteer Duties
Please remember that our league is run completely by volunteers. We rely on you to volunteer your time to succeed as a league. All families pay a $100 per child volunteer bond at registration (except for families of Mini Tee Ball players). To earn back the $100, you must work (2) Volunteer Tasks and (1) Concession Shift at the Ward Concession Stand (for which there will be a separate sign-up.)

Managing or Coaching your child's team will count as One Volunteer Task. All Team Managers/Head Coaches will be exempt from Concession Stand Duty -- for the child they manage. Assistant Coaches will still be required to work a Concession Shift to earn back the bond.

Once your Two (2) Volunteer Tasks are complete and you have worked One (1) Shift at the Concession Stand, you will be refunded your $100. Bonds will be refunded 2-3 months following the end of the season.

Special note to Parents of Softball Players: Please strongly consider volunteering to manage or coach your child’s team. Do not let lack of coaching experience stand in the way – coaching clinics and instruction manuals will be made available. In order to run a successful Softball program we need more volunteers to help.
