Arlington Softball Baseball League

SB 13U

SB 12U Division

At this level, a game looks like a real game of softball.  Focusing switches more to the mental side of softball where we start to train the girls in strategy and encourage them to compete at higher level.  Girls are taught to lead off, steal bases and the pitching and catching becomes more consistent and competitive.  Fundamental mechanics are strengthened at this level and more advanced skills are introduced.

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.  This is a big commitment!  

Games are played typically on the same days as pre season practices.  Games are scheduled for 1.5 hour 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 held 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 bats at each game. Players at this level who catch is recommended to buy their one catcher’s gear and catcher’s glove however the league does supply if needed. 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.
