Farms (5u - 6u)

Division Statement
In this division we focus on teaching the fundamental skills of softball.  Girls will have the option of hitting off a tee or hitting with coach pitch. The focus of this division is learning the basic rules of the game, positions of the field, and team camaraderie.  Players will be rotated to each position in the field throughout the season so they have an understanding of each position.  By the end of the season, all players should be able to throw a ball, catch a ball, hit off a tee and with underhand coach pitch, understand the bases, and understand the concept of an out.
