This is the last division that is encompassed in the Softball Canada Learn to Play program.
We will introduce more of the rules, run games with real umpires and develop pitching and other skills throughout the season.
Teams will play at local parks in Langley, then will start to travel a bit more in the second half of the season, with some games scheduled in Walnut Grove.
Each evening with include 2 parts:
The first half is used as a practice to teach the players the rules and skills of softball through fun games and drills.
The second half is used to play a modified game. Depending on availability Umpires may be provided for games.
There may also be one practice a week, dependent on the coach.
This is the first division that we have player pitchers. Coaches will also pitch after a pre-determined number of pitches.
Birth Years: 2010 & 2011
