12U Softball 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. 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”.
The 12U program is a slightly higher competitive softball division than 10U. Players are exposed to all positions, as the emphasis remains on player development and enjoyment. Youth umpires are used and scores are recorded. All teams make the playoffs with a champion and a runner-up at the conclusion of the season. There will be one practice and one or two games a week, usually a game on Saturday and one weekday game. Practices are held on a weekday. Teams are formed using a modified blind draft system based on player assessments from the previous Spring season. For new players with no assessment on record, directors and coaches will work on a best-effort basis to assign them to teams in a balanced manner. It is important to create teams that are as balanced as possible in order to maximize the enjoyment of the games. As such special requests may not be considered when forming these teams.
