Description

Rookie softball introduces players to a competitive level of play. Players may have one or more years of experience in baseball or softball, but new players are welcome.

At this level players demonstrate progress in mastering the fundamentals of softball and the rules of the game. Players develop life skills related to teamwork and respect of coaches and umpires. Teams maintain a fun environment for learning.

Teams are organized by school/neighborhood as much as possible. Teammate or coach requests will be considered, but are subject to availability.
