WHICH DIVISION SHOULD I SIGN MY DAUGHTER UP FOR?
 
The Little League Softball program is designed for girls age 6 – 12 (see the “Softball LL Age 2015” tab for more info).  While the main focus of FGFS is for all girls who participate, at all levels, to have fun, make new friends, learn/develop their softball skills and, hopefully, develop a love for the game, the goals of each level vary as your daughter progresses upwards, culminating at the Majors Division.  For 2015, FGFS will be offering the following divisions for registering your daughters:
 
Coach Pitch:  The Coach Pitch Division is for girls LL Age 6-7.  Girls LL Age 5 may also play if they played in the FYBL T-Ball or A-Ball program in the Spring of 2014.  The goal of the Coach Pitch Division is to introduce the girls to the sport, teach throwing, catching, batting and fielding skills and help them develop a love for the game!  An attempt will be made to honor requests for specific team placement.  However, such requests CANNOT be guaranteed and placement will be made as needed to provide balance within the league.
 
Minors AA:  The Minors AA Division is for girls LL Age 8-9.  While coaches pitch for the first few games of the season, this is the first level where live pitching (by the girls) is introduced (girls will pitch from 32').  Little League rules concerning minimum playing time will be enforced.  There is a continuous batting order so all girls will bat regardless of whether or not they are playing the field.  The goals of the Minors AA program are to hone the throwing, catching, fielding and batting skills learned in the Coach Pitch Division as well as prepare the girls for eventual entry into the Minors AAA Division by introducing and teaching them pitching, sliding and bunting.  While all girls are expected to strive to win, winning is not the primary focus of the Minors AA Division.  An attempt will be made to honor requests for specific team placement.  However, such requests CANNOT be guaranteed and placement will be made as needed to provide balance and parity within the league. 

 
Minors AAA:  The Minors AAA Division is for girls LL Age 9-10.  This is the first level where all live pitching is by the girls (from 35').  Little League rules concerning minimum playing time will be enforced.  There is a continuous batting order so all girls will bat regardless of whether or not they are playing the field.  The goals of the Minors AAA program are to hone the throwing, catching, fielding and batting skills learned in the Minors AA Division as well as prepare the girls for eventual entry into the Majors Division by introducing and teaching them sliding, bunting, stealing and how to read signs.  While all girls are expected to strive to win, winning is not the primary focus of the Minors AAA Division.  An attempt will be made to honor requests for specific team placement.  However, such requests CANNOT be guaranteed and placement will be made as needed to provide balance and parity within the league. 

Majors:  The Majors division is the most competitive level of Little League Softball and is for girls LL Age 11-12.  There is live pitching and full LL Softball rules are followed.  While retaining a safe, fun and positive experience, an emphasis is placed on winning at this level.  Only nine (9) girls play the field at any given time; however Little League rules concerning minimum playing time will be enforced.  There is a continuous batting order so all girls will bat regardless of whether or not they are playing the field.   It is expected that girls trying out for the Majors Division will have already learned the basics of sliding, bunting, stealing and how to read signs.  Per Little League rules, player placement and team selections are determined via a try-out and draft.  Trying out for the Majors Division does NOT guarantee that your daughter will be selected to a Majors team.  Girls who do not get selected for a Majors team will be assigned to a Minors team.  Requests for specific teams CANNOT be honored.
 
* Please note that, at any level, if a manager or coach of a team identifies a potential safety risk, a girl may be asked to move down a division to better suit her abilities and to ensure her experience in FGFS is a safe and positive one.
