Among teammates of their own age and experience level, players begin building and refining their fundamental softball skills while they begin to understand game strategy. 8U 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. A pitching machine will be used and special base running rules are in effect.
The 8U Softball division is designed for girls ages 7 and 8. League age is determined by age of player on December 31, 2017.
Registration for 8U Softball closes on August 19th. Practices are scheduled to begin the week of September 9th.
