Coach Pitch Softball is open to girls ages 6 and 7 (*5 year old's with a full year of T-Ball experience). If you are uncertain to register for a second year of T-Ball or Coach Pitch please contact our VP of Coach Pitch.
Schedule: Play begins in April and approximately 12 - 16 games are scheduled for each team.
Fields: All games to be played at Stone Monroe Park
Practice: Teams will have practice as scheduled by the Manager
Game Play: Players hit a ball pitched by their Coach; Players are pitched to until they hit the ball fair, though an adjustable tee will be brought in when there has been a number of swings without contact. No walks or strikeouts are recorded. Traditionally, outs are not recorded but players forced or tagged out leave the playing field. Once a team bats through their order, the half inning is over. Base runners typically do not advance on overthrows. Basic game rules are taught and players are rotated among the different fielding positions. Emphasis is on basic game play. Coaches are encouraged to have a few practices in addition to games.
A hat and team shirt is provided by the league. Players will need to bring their own glove, but helmets and bats are optional (and are otherwise shared/provided by the league during the game).
Managers and Coaches always welcomed: As our program grows, so does the need for Managers and Coaches. This allows for smaller teams and more at bats! No experience necessary.
