The Executive Board, Division Directors and the Team Coaches, highly value creating team parity so that each game is a well matched contest that is fun for players and parents alike. We will do our best to honor one friend request. The request must be reciprocal between two players and allow the league to uphold team parity values to be considered. Siblings requesting to play on the same team equal a friend request. This does not apply to the Peewee division.
Mandatory: Player Evaluation day to form teams: ****Saturday, January 13, 2018***
Our Pee-Wee division is fun and instructional designed for our first year 5 and 6 year old players. It is the girls softball equivalent to T-Ball. The girls will hit off a batting “T” for the first part of the season and gradually work up to hitting off their coach’s pitch. Most games and practices are held at La Costa Heights Elementary and start in late January through late April. There is one practice mid-week and one on Saturday until games begin. Then there is one practice mid-week and one game on Saturday. Days and times will vary.
The LCYO Girls 8U Division is designed for seven and eight year olds. The season will feature live pitching by the players and some pitching by the coaches, round robin batting, and free substitution. The girls will be rotating defensively so that everyone has a chance to learn both infield and outfield positions. Most games and practices are held at La Costa Heights Elementary or Stagecoach Park starting in late January through the end of April.
This division is oriented to 9 and 10 year old girls who are interested in recreational softball, team participation with spirit, and having lots of fun!!!
