Ages 13-14 14U


In the 8U league, all the girls play each inning.  The coach pitches balls to every girl in the lineup, there are no balls or strikes. If a girl is having an off-day and doesn't get a hit, she walks to first.  Every position is played, and extra girls fill in the outfield, with the coaches in the outfield as well to work with the girls on positioning and making plays.  Girls will still make plays in the field and get girls out, but the outs do not count.  The last girl in the lineup runs the bases.

In the 10U league, the girls start pitching on their own, and strikes count.  However, if the pitcher throws four balls, the team's coach comes out and gives the batter 5 more chances to get a hit or it is counted as a strikeout.  Only the regulation field positions are played.

In the 12U league and 14U leagues, there are very few special rules applied.  It's regulation softball as they will be eligible to try-out for school softball starting in 7th grade.
