The 8u Program emphasizes the teaching and coaching of fundamental softball skills to girls aged 5-8. The Program plays its games in the Spring (Apr-Jun) and Fall (Aug-Oct/Nov). It is a combined "coach pitch" program where the players start with hitting off a tee and progress to hitting pitches from a coach as they feel comfortable and get more skilled.
Our philosophy is to teach the game of softball by having fun. We do not keep score during games, but rather use games to let the players use the skills they learned in practices. We also encourage all parents to participate -- even if it just means a body to catch and throw with a young player. It is a monumental task for one or two coaches to work with 8-10 players at this age, most of which have little or no experience.
