This is our entry level of softball for girls aged 6-8, this division uses coaches to pitch which allows for more hittable balls at the plate and more action in the field. Emphasis is on starting to learn the game and rules of softball. All positions will begin to be developed at this level including pitching and catching. Players use an 11” safety ball which is easier for the younger players to handle. The focus of Rookie League is to prepare each player to move on to the Minor Leagues. Our league participates in the North Central Mass Softball Regional League.
Games are most often held on Saturdays starting in late April and ending in mid-June.
Practices will be held one or two days per week starting in April and continuing thru the end of the season. The days of the practices are the decision of the head coach and can fluctuate throughout the season.
Home games are played at the Spaulding Softball Field.
Away games will be played in either Ashburnham, Fitchburg, Gardner, Hubbardston, Narragansett or Westminster
