Players hit the ball from a stationary "tee" and run to a single base that honks as the player jumps on it. This division is an absolute riot!!!
Players hit the ball from a stationary "tee" and are introduced to the basic learning skills of throwing, catching and hitting while also being taught the standard rules of softball. Fun and learning are the focus in this division.
Coaches pitch to the players in this division while the focus is still on batting, throwing, and catching. Standard rules of softball apply and more rules get gradually introduced to accommodate the age of the players. Fun and learning are still the focus.
Players are introduced to pitching in this division and will pitch to their opposing teams. More of the standard softball rules are implemented such as stealing bases while the presence of umpires is also introduced. Fun and learning are still the focus with a bit of a more competitive feel.
As players develop their softball skills they are encouraged to try all the different positions on the field. Focus is on learning a more detailed approach to the game both offensively and defensively. All skill levels are welcomed.
This combined division still focuses on skill and learning with teams being equally composed of each age group. Players may typically find their ideal fielding position and develop their skills in this area. Stealing home, drop third strike and infield fly rules are present in this division as well as no other softball rule restrictions.
