Junior Softball (League Age 12-14)

Juniors is a competitive division.  Players pitch from 43 feet. Games are 6 innings and are not limited by time.  A game may be considered complete after 4 innings and the 10 run mercy rule applies. The first 4 innings are limited to 5 runs, all innings after that are open. Stealing is allowed after the ball leaves the pitcher’s hand.

Players League Age 12 through 14 may play Junior softball. Please use the League Age Chart to determine your child's League Age.

Please understand that we cannot guarantee players League Age 12 a spot in the Junior Division. A player's placement in the Junior Division is based on several factors including the number of players registered by age group, the number of teams in the division, and player assessments. If your child is not placed on a team in the Junior Division, she will be placed in the Major Division.  Final decisions on player placement are determined by the Player Agent and Board.
