2018 Fall Softball

 

The purpose of the Fall Ball program is to provide an opportunity for girls to play softball in a safe and secure environment under adult supervision.  

 

All players are welcome regardless of their experience or skill level.  However Fall Ball is highly recommended for the player moving up an age group and/or the first time they are playing softball.  

 

Fall Ball is an instructional league that introduces new players to the game and provides experienced players an arena to improve their skills and knowledge.  

 

The Fall Ball format provides players the opportunity to try different positions while allowing managers to evaluate and coach new pitchers, give batting and fielding instructions, etc.  

 

There are no official standings.  There are no trophies or other awards.  The focus is completely on development.

 

The Fall season games run for 8 weeks:  Sunday, September 9th thru Sunday October 28th.  Almost all games are played on Sundays.
