The program is open to girls ages 7 to 10 living or attending school in School District 621 attendance areas. The season runs Late May through mid-July. A great deal of time and effort is invested to make this program fun for players, with the hope they will develop a love for the game. The program is designed to gradually introduce players to the North American Fastpitch Association (NAFA) rules of play. Coaches are parent volunteers who are selected for their dedication and study of the rules. It is their responsibility to teach each player how to pitch and catch, as well as hitting, base running, fielding and game etiquette. To keep the game moving, a batting T is brought to the plate after 3 balls are called (no walks are awarded). Ideally, four teams of 12 players are formed each season. Games are played on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Teams play at Pinewood Elementary School in Mounds View. A season end tournament is played at Rice Creek Fields in Shoreview.
