Among teammates of their own age and experience level, players continue building and refining their fundamental skills while they begin to understand game strategy. 10U softball is played under the official Babe Ruth Softball rules, but implements some special rules as necessary for the development and welfare of this young age group. The game is played on a 60-foot diamond with a pitching distance of 35 feet. An eleven inch ball is used and special base running rules are in effect.
The 10U Softball division is designed for girls ages 9 and 10. League age is determined by age of player on December 31, 2017.
All players new to the 10U Softball division must attend one of two player skills evaluation at the College of Southern Maryland in LaPlata. No cleats are permitted on the gym floor.
Saturday, February 10, 2018 from 11:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Sunday, February 11, 2018 from 3:00-4:00 p.m.
Following evaluations, players will be drafted to create teams of equal strength.
The 10U Softball division will be scheduled to play 2 games per week. Practice and game times may vary, with locations being held at various fields throughout Charles County.
The last day to register for 10U Softball is February 11th.
