8U For 2022 will be a local Coach Pitch league with Centennial and White Bear Lake.
This is a great way to introduce the girls to the game of fastpitch using the same rules as 10U fastpitch – striking out, 3 outs an inning, etc. However, there is no stealing, no leading off, and no walks. Like 10/12U Fastpitch, there will be travel to other local associations. Coaches focus on the fundamentals of softball: throwing, catching, hitting, and base running.
There are no tryouts for 8U. Girls 7 or 8 years old on December 31st of the previous year are eligible to play.
