This level is geared towards girl that are 9 to 10 years old. Players pitch to other players at this level from a distance of 35 feet. It focuses on fundamentals of the game and introducing players to the game of softball in a fun, structured environment. Players use an 11” ball which is easier for the younger players to handle. Our league participates in the North Central Mass Softball League for inter-town play.
