1. Instructional or Prep Level
The primary focus is on having fun while learning the basic fundamentals of the game. This program is designed for entry level players to learn the basics of the game. If your child is born in 2010-2013, this is the program they should participate in. For girls with 2 or more years playing experience and significant skills, it may be appropriate to move up to play at the 10U level. This would be an exception situation and the ultimate determination of level of play will be made by the coaches based on an assessment of each girl's development and skill level.
Practices and games will be held at the Schadt Avenue Fields
Contact James Schultz at 610-577-6155 with any questions about the Prep level.
2. Recreational Level/Parkland League
The primary focus continues to be on enhancing skills while introducing competition and teamwork. This league is a recreational league and will play other recreational teams from the Lehigh Valley region.
Teams will participate at the following levels in the Parkland Softball League:
10 and under (girls born in 2008 and 2009)
12 and under (girls born in 2006 and 2007)
14 and under (girls born in 2004 and 2005)
Competition, while not as intense as the Lehigh Valley League, is still a component of this league. The Parkland League has minimum playing time rules and all players must be in the batting lineup to ensure active participation opportunities for all. If you are a member of a tournament travel team you cannot participate in this league. The Parkland League strives to balance competition by creating 2 divisions per age level where team numbers allow ensuring teams made up of girls with more experience and stronger skills (Div 1) are matched against like teams while teams with less experienced players and less developed skills (Div 2) are also matched. Players will be assigned according to the division which best suits their abilities.
