12u players are ages 10-12 years old. Players aged 12 years or less on January 1 of the current year are eligible for 12u play. The 12u league emphasizes further refinement of the fundamental softball skills (catching, throwing, hittings, base running, rules, and game play) continues to build on the skills learned at 10u. BRYC plays its games in the Spring (Apr-Jun) and Fall (Sep-Oct/Nov).
12u is somewhat of a step up in play as girls at this age begin to really develop their fine motor skills and have a few years of experience that help them better understand the game and how it's played. We still encourage parents to help, especially during practice where a coach can break the team down into small groups to have more individualized focus on each player.
BRYC Softball is a girls fastpitch softball organization in Fairfax County, Virginia that is dedicated to providing girls with the opportunity to experience recreational and competitive softball in an atmosphere that encourages and promotes teamwork, friendships, and good sportsmanship.
