Welcome to the U12/11 Division web page of the Westford Youth Baseball and Softball League
In the Spring of 2015, the U11/U12 Division will combine the players that previously played in separate U11 and U12 divisions. The U11/U12 Division is a developmental league focused on the principles of improving a player’s baseball fundamentals, skills and knowledge of the game while promoting good sportsmanship, team play and fun through a supervised program of competitive baseball.
Our primary goal for the league is for the players to have an opportunity to have fun while they learn and enjoy playing baseball. Coaches will assist in the players understanding of the game, stressing the learning of baseball fundamentals and the development of core skills.
The U11/U12 program is the most competitive of our baseball divisions that play on the little league size field. The competitive nature is slightly higher than the previous U11 division, where live baseball is stressed for the first time, umpires are used, scores are recorded and team standings are maintained. All players are ensured to participate in all games at various positions on the field.
The division follows a modified version of the Cal Ripken Baseball rules. All teams make the playoffs and a single or double elimination tournament provides a champion and runner-up at the conclusion of the season.
The Board of Directors encourages you to review the League Code of Conduct on the WYBSL web site as it pertains to coaches, players, and fans.
We are looking forward to a safe and enjoyable baseball
Note: Due to limited field availability, the U11/U12 teams may hold some or all practices on Sundays.
