Softball Leagues

LEAGUE AGE

Your player’s league age is determined by the Little League Baseball and Little League Softball Age Charts. The dates for baseball and softball are different, but each determines the division in which your Little Leaguer will play this season. The Age Determination Date for a Little League Baseball player is the actual age of a child on August 31 of the current year. The Age Determination Date for a Little League Softball player is the actual age of a child on December 31 of the previous year..

(Girls with a birthday in January, February, March or April who begin with the T-Ball program as a baseball league age 5-year-old are eligible to play Minis in their second season with SBYBS even though they are not an “official” softball league age 6-year-old). 

  • DESCRIPTION: Some travel games against other towns will be scheduled.  Players use a batting Tee and coach pitching is introduced for those players who can hit a pitched ball.  Basic skills are taught and practiced.  Kids generally play multiple positions. Scores are not officially recorded.  This is not a drop-off league; parents are required to stay throughout practices and games.

  • FIELDS: JC Park, Dorset Park, Upper Farrell Park, other town parks.

  • SKILLS CHECK:  SBYBS wants to do its best to ensure a balance of skilled players on each team.  To that end, all Softball Minors registrants will be asked to attend a “skills check” in order to assist the league in creating balanced teams.  Friend ‘play-with’ requests will continue to be considered in the team-making process but as the second priority rather than the first.  The date, time and place of this skills check will be emailed at a later date.
