In order to play softball, each family will need to sign a COVID waiver. Once you have read the waiver, please print and sign, then upload to the Softball DropBox.
The following guidelines will be in place as we return to the fields and are subject to change short notice.
Practice days and times are set by the coach after team selection.
|Division *||Birth Year|
|6U **||2014 and 2015|
|8U||2012 and 2013|
|10U||2010 and 2011|
|12U||2008 and 2009|
|14U||2006 and 2007|
** Although not suggested, based on the player's individual ability, a player may start 6U at a younger age than what is indicated, provided the parent is available to assist with the player at practices and games.
The Fall Ball season generally starts at the end of August with games starting after Labor Day. The season usually ends in November the week before Thanksgiving.
Fall Ball is comprised of two separate programs:
Both programs involve playing teams from other leagues, but each offers a different level of competition and commitment from the girls.
Note: During Fall, players will move up to their Spring division to get some experience with any new equipment or rule changes. For example, if your player is moving to the next age division in Spring of 2021, she will "play up" to that division during this Fall season (i.e., if your player is a 2nd year 8U, moving to 10U in spring, she will play 10U Fall Ball now).
The "Rec" program is competitive, but has less intensity and weekly time commitment compared to the Select program and does not require an invitation from a coach.
The "Select" program is highly competitive with a greater time commitment required. Players must be selected by the Select team coach and the selection process is completely at the coach's discretion. If your player is not selected, she will be placed on a recreational team. In the event that LNGS hosts a Select tournament, there may be an additional volunteer requirement or buyout. This will be determined as we get closer to the event.
