8U Traveling League

Summer Start Up!

Welcome to 8U Softball Program - Where it all begins!

 

8U For 2021 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.

8U Fastpitch Commitment:

  • 1 practice/week - Sundays at Rice Creek Fields (possibly more)
  • 2 games/week - Tuesdays and Thursday evenings at Lexington Fields
  • Centennial Tournament: Father's Day weekend
  • State Tournament: TBD
  • Games start in early May
  • Season will wrap up the last week in June
