Softball Divisional Guidelines

Based on registration numbers, we will be creating the divisions based on the outline below. If registration numbers fall to a level where an appropriate numbers of teams cannot be formed, we will likely condense divisions.

If you need to verify your child's Little League Softball age, please refer to this chart.  


Softball Divisions:

Instructional Softball (age 6) Instructional is for children to become acquainted with some of softball basics. We ask that parents consider their child’s readiness for softball. Some children are not ready for the slower pace of softball and become easily distracted. Although coaches make every effort to maintain participation and safety standards, a child who is not physically or socially ready could injure herself or another child.

Farm Softball (ages 7-8) Farm Softball is a developmental league with the emphasis on softball skills and techniques. Softball pitching with be taught and practiced but coaches will pitch during the games.

Minors Softball (ages 9-10) The Minors is an entry level division for “competitive” softball. Girls continue to develop their individual skills while learning more about team play. Games will be played against in-town teams as well as some from neighboring towns.

Majors Softball (ages 11-12) The Majors is a more competitive division with increased emphasis on team strategies and individual skills. We field 2 to 3 in-town teams and also participate in a multi-town league.
