BABE RUTH 8U ROOKIE SOFTBALL (COACH PITCH) | AGE 6 – 8

8U Rookie Softball is an instructional program for girl’s age 6 to 8.  No previous experience with softball or baseball is necessary. GYBSL’s Rookie program has been developed in a fashion that will help transition girls from our Co-Ed T-Ball Program into our Softball Program, as well as introducing new players to Softball. There are no tryouts for this division. All who sign up will be included on a first-come-first-served basis. 

Teams within this level will typically meet 3x (1x practice & 2x games) per week starting late-April and run until mid-June. Games will be held on weeknights and Saturday mornings. Practices will be scheduled by each individual coach. Home games will be held at the Gardner High School Fields or at Jackson Field. Teams will travel within NCMSL for away games.  

Our Parent coaches and volunteers will continue to focus on softball fundamentals during practices and games. This is our coach pitch level, which will allow for more hittable balls at the plate and more action in the field. Our primary goal is to build upon what players learned at the T-Ball level, begin to understand softball situations while building confidence at the plate by facing coach pitching.

The Program Fee is $75.00 (fee includes player’s uniform: numbered jersey, visor, and matching socks)

The League will provide to each coach baseballs, bats, helmets, catchers equipment and bases.
