Arlington Softball Baseball League

SB 10U

Softball 10U Division

This level of competition introduces the girls to pitching.  Good pitching and catching is crucial at this level.  Girls will learn more advanced skills than at the Coach Pitch level.  More advanced strategies such as bunting and base running will be a focus of concentration alongside the reinforcement of the basic mechanics.

What is the game and practice schedule at this level?

Teams begin practices approximately a month before games begin.  Teams have pre-season practice 2 to 3 times per week. Practice will likely be more frequent during preseason.  It is important for girls to make every practice possible to build the skills they need for success and fun!  

Games are played typically on the same days as pre season practices.   Games are scheduled for 1 hour and 15 minutes slots. The regular season in the Spring ends around Memorial Day and in Fall league, it ends around Halloween.

When will I hear from a coach? What is STEP?

Players new and returning to softball will be required to attend skills evaluation session (STEP - Spring Training Evaluation Program).  All players are expected to attend STEP.

STEP will be at the beginning of February. At STEP, coaches and league officials confirm together that players are registered for the appropriate level of play.  Teams are formed soon thereafter and your coach will reach out to you.

The Fall season does not implement the Evaluation days.

What does my player need?

The league provides a team uniform shirt, belt and socks for each player. You will need to provide your own glove, helmet, fielding mask and bat at each game. Cleats should be worn at this level.

What else is required?

Your participation is a parent.  Even if you don’t step up as a head coach, parents should be present at these games to cheer on their players and help the coaches. We strongly suggest that the parents read the Parent’s Code of Conduct.  Our sole focus of this league is to positively develop your daughter to love the game of softball and perform to her best of her ability.  Your involvement and attitude is crucial in partnership with us.

Mandatory Volunteer Application must be filled out before an adult can be on field working with players.
