AA Softball

Ages 7-8

Players who have at least one year of T-Ball / A Softball are typically enrolled in AA Softball. However first time players will fit in just fine. This program features a slightly more aggressive style of play and is designed to help your child make the transition from instructional to competitive softball. This program not only focuses on good softball fundamentals, but also teaches advanced softball skills such as base running. An adult pitcher will underhand pitch to your child. A hitting T may be used after several attempts of coach pitch if the child is still developing skills of hitting pitched balls. The ball is a 9″ safety (squishy) ball. Parents are strongly encouraged to participate by helping throw and catch during practice, field prep, umpiring during the regular season.

We will TRY to keep girls together by school grade given the December 31st cut off date can force them into a different division. At this level we TRY to place players on teams roughly grouped by elementary school. Mutual buddy requests are allowed (i.e. Libby H. requests to be on the same team as Megan L. AND Megan L. requests to be on the same team with Libby H.). Team formation will be determined by: mutual buddy requests, coaching considerations (manager and assistant coaches), Preferred Practice days, elementary school, and non-mutual buddy requests in that order.

  • AGE: Your child should be 7 years old by December 31, 2023 participate. Most girls who play AA Softball are 2nd graders, but some 1st graders who are 7 years old play and 3rd graders who aren’t 9 years old by December 31st, play their second year of AA Softball.
  • TEAMS: AA Softball teams are made up of 10 to 13 players.
  • PRACTICES: Teams will generally practice twice a week in the preseason for one hour. During the regular season teams will typically have two (2) softball events during the week, a weekday practice and a weekend game.
  • GAMES: Teams will play approximately 10 games during the regular season, depending on scheduling considerations and weather. Outs are recorded, however the entire team will bat every inning. Games are usually 1:50 minutes or four innings.
  • VOLUNTEERS: Parent participation is necessary on many levels from Coaching, Field Preparation, Team parent, etc.
  • FEE: $175. There is a family cap of $500. Financial aid is available upon request.
