Misc. Info: Fall Ball is a great opportunity for a lot of the players to experience "moving up" before the spring season. 6U/8U – still focuses on fun, fun, fun and peaking their interest in softball and team building skills. New to 10U in the fall? They’ll have the opportunity to pitch/catch (along with honing their skills at every other position) and advance their defensive/offensive skills. 12U continues to expand their knowledge and skills of the games. 14U games are filled with excitement as we watch the players truly develop and enhance their game. High School Players: For the players entering 9th grade and are thinking about trying out for their freshman softball teams, this season provides them with the continuity they need for that next step and gaining the confidence they need. Fall Ball provides them very opportunity to either continue a casual enjoyment of the game OR step up their skill set for preparation of JV and Varsity ball.
