We offer instructional softball for girls ages 4-16. Our managers and coaches are all volunteers, giving their time to teach the players the skills they need to understand, excel in, and love the game of softball.

Practices begin in the spring, usually the first week of April, when the weather starts to cooperate. Teams will practice once or twice a week before games begin in late April or early May. Games are generally scheduled once or twice during the week and then on the weekends. Teams may continue to practice once games have begun.

Games are played on the park district and school fields throughout our village, including some fields with lights for night games and concession stands for a fun baseball experience. Visit our FIELDS page for locations and status.

Our girls’ softball divisions are:

Girls T-Ball Ages 4-6
Munchkin Ages 6-7
