nine and 10 year olds will play Midget League, eleven;


12-year-olds will play Little League; and

There will be two divisions for girl’s softball.  Girls ages nine to 11 will play Junior Softball while ages 12 to 14 will play Senior Softball. 

All ages are “league ages” which means that age attained prior to May 1 of the season.  For example, a player who is 10 years old, but turns 11 years old on or before April 30th, will have a “league age” of 11.
