Program Description: The 10U fastpitch teams continue to have the goal of building player fundamentals and player skill improvement but at a higher level of competition. An 11” regulation softball is used and delivered to the batter by a player from 35’ with coach relief pitching.
Teams are selected via a draft system in order to create a competitive balance between teams. As a result, please understand that we generally cannot accommodate requests to be on the same team as another player, or to be placed on a particular coach's team. If available, the games will be umpired by patched umpires. Otherwise, high school students will umpire. Scores and standings are kept.
There may be an opportunity for girls to play in a tournament at the end of the season. The division director and coaches will select the tournament team based on regular-season performance, attendance, and availability.
