The purpose of Recreational Softball is to teach inexperienced players the fundamentals of throwing, catching and hitting as well as learning the rules of the game through friendly competition. Experienced players are encouraged to play new positions not previously played to enhance the player’s overall skill level. Girls interested in participating in our Lady Gator Travel Program must play in the Recreation program. Parent participation is KEY to the overall success of this program as we are 100% volunteer driven.
All practices and games are held at Lake Catherine Sports Complex located at 9470 MacArthur Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens.
The Recreation Softball Program is designed for Girls ages 4 through 14. Player age is determined by how old the player is on December 31st of the previous year.
- Tball Division – ages 4, 5 and 6
- 8U Division – ages 7 and 8
- 10U Division – ages 9 and 10
- 12U Division – ages 11 and 12
- 14U Division – ages 13 and 14
Our Recreation Program has one season which runs from January until about mid-April. Our 10U and older divisions participate in an evaluation and draft in order to maintain a competitive balance between teams. Requests for coaches and/or teammates are not allowed in these age groups. Scores and standings are kept in 10U and older divisions. Requests are allowed in our 8U and Tball divisions but are not guaranteed.
Registration begins in October and can be found on the Registration Link under the Softball Information tab on our main page. If you have any questions, please email the Softball League President, Michelle Heim at [email protected]
