Westport Little League Softball would like to make you aware of a very special event for kindergarten through third grade girls!

Westport Softball in conjunction with the Staples High School Softball players and coaches will be hosting a FREE Softball Jamboree for all girls in kindergarten through third grade!!  You do not need to be registered for softball to come and play!

We will be hosting this FREE Jamboree on Saturday, March 28th at the Staples High School Field House from 1:30 - 3:00 pm.

Every girl in Westport in kindergarten through third grade is invited to come play "some ball" with the Staples High School Softball players and coaches.  No equipment is necessary - we will provide everything needed to catch, throw and hit!

All girls that attend our Jamboree will be entered to win a pink bat and a pink glove!  All girls will receive free t-shirts with our special Jamboree logo on it, courtesy of our softball partners at ASF sports and our friends at Melissa & Doug.

All girls will also walk away from this Free event with an ice cream coupon courtesy of our friends at Saugatuck Sweets.

If you bring a friend, there will be an additional "surprise" for both you and your friend!

Please come and join Westport Softball and the Staples High School Softball players and coaches for this amazing, fun event!

Juniors - Grades 8/9

"Juniors" League players must be in grade 8 or 9 during the 2014-2015 school year, and be born on or before 12/31/09. 

Juniors (8-9th) is a competitive league with Fairfield, Black Rock, Trumbull, Stratford and maybe more. Pitching is from 43'. Games may be scheduled anytime during the week. Practices will begin as soon as the weather allows perhaps as soon as March 28th (Games begin in early April). High School freshman players may join the league in late May when the HS releases them. There is a weekly practice at a time chosen by the coaches. Please list conflict days as prompted in the registration process so coaches can try to schedule practices around them but there are usually only 1-2 teams so flexibility is limited. If you sign up to play, the team will be counting on you to be there most of the time.

  • The season concludes with a tournament.
  • The rules are similar to High School.

 

Majors - Grades 6/7

"Majors" League players must be in grade 6 or 7 during the 2014-2015 school year, and be born on or before 12/31/09. 

Majors (6-7th) is a competitive league in town that may includes some play with surrounding towns. Pitching is from 40' and the girls are getting good at it. Games are on Saturday mornings (9am) or under the lights in the evening, and once during the week usually Tuesday, Thursday or Friday. Practice and pre-season games will take place starting March 28th and the official schedule starts right after the break. There is a weekly practice at a time chosen by the coaches. Please list conflict days as prompted in the registration process so you won't be assigned to a team with whom you can't practice (within limits). Friend requests are secondary to competitive balance. If you sign up to play, the team will be counting on you to be there most of the time.

  • Runners lead on the pitch and stealing now includes home.
  • The catcher becomes vital and outfielders see the ball a lot.
  • The season concludes with a playoff tournament.

 

AAA - Grades 4/5

AAA League players must be in grade 4 or grade 5 during the 2014-2015 school year, and be born on or before 12/31/09. 

 "AAA" League (4-5th) will play once during the week on Monday or Wednesday at 5:30PM and Saturday morning at 11:30 (games have a 2 hour time limit). Practice and pre-season games will take place starting March 28th (weather permitting) and the official schedule starts right after the break. There is a weekly practice at a time chosen by the coaches. Please list conflict days as prompted in the registration process so you won't be assigned to a team with whom you can't practice (within limits). Friend requests are considered but the teams are drafted by coaches to create a competitive balance throughout the league. This league begins the girls' experience with the real game. If you sign up to play, the team will be counting on you to be there most of the time.

The girls pitch from 35'. For the first part of the season, after 2 walks a coach will come in to pitch on a 3 ball count. At the conclusion of the at-bat the pitcher returns. Coaches can't walk batters. Later in the season the girls will pitch themselves.

  • Walks, strikeouts, limited stealing, bunting and running the bases are part of the game.
  • Rules exist to be sure all girls have similar opportunities to play.
  • Scores and Standings are kept, and there are playoffs for all teams with the chance to win a championship.
  • The league plays in town.

 

AA3 - Grade 3

          AA3 League players must be in grade 3 during the 2014-2015 school year, and be born on or before 12/31/09. 

"AA3" League  (3rd grade) will play on Saturday morning at 10:30 or 11:30 (games have a 1.5 hour time limit). Practice and pre-season clinics will take place starting April 1 and the official schedule starts right after the break. Weekly professionally coached clinics will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays (Team practices may be offered in addition or instead of the clinic at some point in the season. Time will be determined by the coach). Please list your conflict times where prompted in the registration process. This league begins the girls' experience with the real game. The girls pitch and catch with coach backup.  Players begin to learn stealing, one base on overthrows and no stealing home.  If you sign up to play, the team will be counting on you to be there most of the time.

 

A2 - Grade 2

They will also have professionally coached clinics every Tuesday or Thursday.   If you have a conflict on one day you'll be able to go on the other.  General rules of play: Outs are recorded and 3 outs ends an inning.  Coaches pitch to begin the seasons and the girls can learn to pitch throughout the season; there can only be 1 walk - and that is when the girls are pitching. One base on hit or the possibility of two if it goes to the outfield untouched. Scores are not kept.
