BBAA Youth Softball

Ages 7-15

ABOUT SPRING SOFTBALL

  • Each team will have at least two scheduled practices per week (determined by head coach).  I cannot tell you what days of the week your team will practice.  In March, when coaches have chosen teams and picked practice days and locations, that is when your child's practices will be known.  FYI: Some coaches have more practices, but two is the minimum. 

  • Practices will start mid March (weather permitting).

  • Games begin the week of April 24 for most levels and can go all the way till the end of June depending level and playoffs. Shetland and 8U softball will likely start playing games May 1.

  • Most levels play a 16-game season, 8 at home and 8 away games.  Locations can be found on the BBAA website.

  • It is probable to have 2 games per week.  The schedules are released 1-2 weeks before the season starts, so we will not know your child's schedule until about April 12.

  • Uniforms will be given to players right before the season begins.

  • Requesting coaches and other players that a parent wants to play with their child puts us in a real difficult situation.  We are required by our rules to have a fair draft.  Parent requests for specific teams is difficult for us to accommodate at any level with playoffs.  As a result, we will not guarantee that we will fulfill any requests after the Shetland and 8U levels.
