Participants will get a “kick” out of learning new soccer skills and improving on old ones. Teamwork, cooperation, sportsmanship and fun are emphasized as players gain confidence in their abilities. Divisions are determined by the age your child is currently in (no moving up or down). Games are played on Saturday mornings beginning at 8:45 a.m. your child’s game time will be determined once registration closes and the number of teams is determined. Practice days and times are determined by the volunteer coach. If practices are impossible for you to make, you may ask for a full refund. We are unable to switch players from one team to another. Volunteering could be the solution to your very hectic schedule. Let us know at time of registration if you would like to be a coach. We will be obtaining quality coaches first, allowing them to register their child and then accept open registration starting January 22nd. Placement on a team is on a first-come, first served basis as to the number of volunteer coaches who have signed up. As a coach you can decide the day and time you want to practice. Note: shin guards are required for all games and practices. Sandwich park district does not provide personal protective gear. Participants must wear a soccer jersey, available to purchase for $18 at the office. This jersey may be worn for many seasons.  Coaches registration: January 2nd to January 20th.

2018 SANDWICH GIRLS SOFTBALL
8U Level – 8U is designed primarily for 7 and 8 year old girls as the beginning point for learning girls’ softball. 8U is a  developmental step designed to teach softball fundamentals in a fun atmosphere. At this level, there are no wins and no losses, and the coaches pitch to the girls. Basic hitting and defensive skills are the focus and are very similar to the 10U level.
10U Level– 10U continues the focus on developing skills, but pitching becomes the responsibility of the players, instead of coaches. 10U also adds a competitive element as wins, losses and a tournament becomes part of the experience.
12U Level- At the intermediate 12U level, the game increases in size, speed, and competition level; just as girl’s physical growth begins to speed up. Skills are taught at a higher level, and more athletic training is used to develop improved speed and agility. Field dimensions increase to be the same as high school.
14U Level– 14U incorporates the same rules as high school and the level of competition increases further as girls develop their
athletic skills to a higher level in preparation for high school softball. At this level, the SPDGSL League removes the requirement
for girls to play a minimum number of innings. General Information: A team jersey is included in your fee. Fee does not include softball glove or softball pants all of which are required. Softball cleats are recommended but are optional.
Practices: Practices begin in April, depending on the weather and coach’s availability.
Games: Games begin mid-May and run through mid-July. Games are generally placed on the following days and time as listed below (except rescheduled games).
8U / 12U: Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:00pm and Saturdays at 10:00am.
10U/14U: Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays at 6:00pm.
