8U Softball Division

8U Division is a developmental league focused on the league’s mission of improving a player’s softball fundamentals, skills and knowledge of the game. Promoting good sportsmanship, team play and fun are the most important lessons we try and instill in our athletes.

We will actively assist in helping our players understand the game more strategically, stress learning softball fundamentals and development of core skills for each and every participating child. As all players develop at different times, it is important as a league and coaches that we work with all players to ensure that they develop a lifelong love of the “game”.

Players are exposed to all positions as emphasis is on player development and enjoyment. Scores are not recorded and team standings are not maintained. There is one weekday practice, one game on Saturday and no playoffs.
