Easthampton Little League Baseball & Softball

Content

Softball is offered for girls 6 to 12 years old. League age requirements are determined by Little League International. Please use the League Age Calculator near the bottom of this page to find your child’s league age. Within the softball program are teams in the following divisions: AA, AAA, and Majors. Below are descriptions and information about each division.

AA (U8)
The AA Division is designed for players 6 through 9 years old. Most players will be 7 or 8 years old, with inexperienced 9 year olds also being eligible. In this division a combination of coach and player pitching is used from a 35’ distance. Teams from surrounding towns will be involved in league play. Players will be provided a uniform top, visor, gray softball pants and socks. 

AAA (U10)
The AAA division is designed for players 8 through 10 years old. This is a player pitch league in which scores and standings are kept and includes the opportunity to compete against teams from surrounding towns in District Two. Emphasis is based on applying the fundamentals learned at the lower levels and continuing to learn game strategy, while learning the skills specific to each position. Teams will typically play 2 games a week. Players will be provided a uniform top, visor, softball pants and socks. 

Majors (U12)
Majors is a competitive division designed for 10 to 12-year-olds in which scores and standings are kept. Teams will compete with other towns in District Two. While the competitive feel increases at this level, coaches continue to focus on refining and improving skills, team building and teaching the game. Playing time may not necessarily be equal among players at the Majors level. Players will be provided a uniform top, hat and socks. Softball pants are also available, but we have found that most players at this level choose to provide their own pants. For this reason we ask parents to purchase a pair of softball pants. 

Seniors (U16)
Seniors is a competitive division designed for 13 to 16-year-olds in which scores and standings are kept. Teams will compete with other towns in District Two. Coaches will continue to focus on refining and improving skills, team building and teaching the game. Playing time may not necessarily be equal among players at the Seniors level. Players will be provided a uniform top, hat and socks. Softball pants are also available, but we have found that most players at this level choose to provide their own pants. For this reason we ask parents to purchase a pair of softball pants. 

NOTE: DIVISIONAL PLACEMENT AT ALL PLAYER PITCH LEVELS IS EVALUATION BASED - ELL makes all divisional placement decisions
