Rookies League

Rookies Softball is for 7 and 8 year old players and 6 year olds with at least one year of tee ball experience. This is the next step up from Tee Ball for the softball players. A fun atmosphere is maintained while working on skills. Players will participate in official games. No scores or standings are recorded. It is a fun instructional league with emphasis on continued skill development. Batters will hit against coaches’ pitching. Players will learn to hit a moving ball, assist in a putout at a base and play with most of the basic Little League Softball rules. Players should feel comfortable with a ball thrown or hit to them and be able to protect themselves with their glove. Most games are on Saturday morning though there may be one or two on a weeknight. One weeknight practice per week will be scheduled.
 

Minor League

Minors Softball is for 9 and 10 year old players. 8 year old players may be permitted to play Minors based on a tryout and available roster spots. Minors is a competitive league with scores and standings. Teams are assigned by the league coordinators with an emphasis on balanced teams. Games are played by official Little League rules with local modifications. Player pitch is introduced and is supplemented with coach pitch to keep games moving. There will be two games and a minimum of one practice per week. Games will be on Saturday afternoons/evenings and one weeknight, most likely Tuesday or Thursday. Minors teams also play several interleague games per season against other NJ District 12 teams and will travel to other area towns for some of these games.
