2020 GIRLS “FALL” INSTRUCTIONAL SOFTBALL THE PRIMARY GOAL OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO ASSIST IN PLAYER DEVELOPMENT.

The Sandwich Park District will be hosting a fall softball league for 10U, 12U and 14U divisions that will strictly focus on development of players. This league will play on four Sundays in September and
October and offer each team the opportunity to play in six games at Milestone Park in Sandwich. Games will have a 1.5 hour limit imposed and should be viewed as an opportunity for your girls to play different positions, work with coaches on game situations and, most importantly learn and play under the rules of the divisions (new rules for girls moving up a division). Overview of divisions (and rules changes from lower division) are as follows:

10U: • Focus on skill development • Games will last 6 innings or 1.5 hour time limit.

12U: • Develop pitchers from 40’ distance using 12” ball (especially important for girls moving up from 10U) • Learn proper base running techniques and fundamental development. Games will last either 7 innings or 1.5 hours (whichever comes first) and will have a 5 run per inning maximum. Teach girls new to the age division infield fly and dropped third strike rule • No standings or scores will be reported.

14U: Develop pitchers from 43’ distance using 12” ball. Teach girls new to the age division infield fly and drop third strike rule. Games will last either 7 innings or 1.5 hours (whichever comes first) and will have a 5 run per inning max).
