- Spring Sign-ups Start on January 1st, 2020
- Take Part in Indoor Winter Warm-ups, Sundays in Jan & Feb
- Looking for volunteers and coaches for the spring season.
TO: All Spring Families
The NCCGSL and its member organizations, have made the very difficult decision to cancel the spring 2020 softball season. We agreed that this was in the best interest of our families and players. We will resume softball in the fall. Sign-ups for that season will start in a few weeks.
For HSE players, aging out this spring, there will be an exception to the age requirement rules, to allow you to play again this fall.
For all members, you will be issued a refund for the spring season. I will also issue refunds for Fan Shirts and Orioles Day tickets. Details about that will be provided. However, I will need a few days to put all that together.
As for Havenwood, we will take a significant financial loss for funds, already put forth to start the spring season. However, Havenwood will endure. We will continue to maintain the fields, cut the grass. maintain the facility and sadly look out over everything and think about this lost season and all the players and the many families that make Havenwood so great.
I want to thank all the coaches and board members that worked tirelessly, to get the season ready. While the outcome is not what we wanted, your time and commitment are not lost.
We look forward to getting life back to normal and seeing our families and players out at the fields in the fall. Take care, stay close to family and be safe.
Havenwood Girls Softball
This program is designed for the entry level and younger player. As safety is our number one concern, a 10 inch Incrediball is used (a “softer” version softball). We keep the teams small so that each child gets a lot of playing time and not a lot of standing or sitting around. In addition, the player gets a lot more individual coaching time. Of course with smaller teams, each child gets more at bats, which we all know is their favorite thing to do at this age.
Now your asking yourself, what is 6U Modified T-Ball?
The teams are made up of girls who are league age 4-6 years of age. This allows the girls to play with girls of similar age so they can learn together at a similar pace.
The key difference between T-Ball and Modified T-Ball is that the coach will pitch a few times to the batter and if the batter does not hit the ball, the ball is put on a Tee. You will find this is fast moving and a lot more exciting than T-ball and has a guaranteed success rate. Also, with more players hitting, the fielders are more engaged and having fun.
At this age level, the rules are more relaxed as we focus on safety, fun and learning first. For example, if a child is uncomfortable with coach pitch, then she can immediately hit off the Tee until she is ready for coach pitch.
Travel for this age group is very limited. Most games are played in Pasadena and nearby Glen Burnie.
