How do I know what division to register for?
Division eligibility is determined by birth year.
What equipment will players need?
Every player will need a softball glove, helmet (with face guard), and bat at minimum. Bats must be fastpitch softball style bats, and have the USSSA bat mark (pictured left).
What size ball is used?
8u and above will need a protective fielding mask.
Since sliding is permitted beginning in 10u, softball pants strongly recommended (softball socks will be provided).
Cleats are helpful but not required to play. If cleats/turf shoes are worn, they must have plastic or rubber cleats.
Metal cleats are only allowed in 14/16U play.
Slow pitch, coach pitch, and 10U fast pitch uses an 11 inch softball and 12U and 14U fast pitch uses a 12 inch softball. 6U coach pitch uses a safety ball that is softer than the regular softball. What size glove is recommended?
Which length softball bat should I buy?
