Guide to Softball Seasons
Spring, Post-Season, Summer Rec, and Fall Softball Explained
Spring Season Softball
Spring is the main season for Little League Softball. Teams will be announced and practices will commence in March. The season will run from late March to Mid-June culminating on the WWLL Awards day. The programs are designed to give players of all skill levels the opportunity to participate and to develop their love of the game and their physical abilities.
Post Season Softball
Post Season Softball is competitive and is an opportunity for our best players to continue their season into the summer months. We field two tournament teams for 8 year old players and 9 year old players respectively. Our 8 year old team participates in our in house hosted U8 tournament in June and the 9 year old team participates in the annual Bordentown tournament which is also held in June.
WWLL also fields two District All Star teams; one for 9 and 10 year olds and one for 11 and 12 year olds. For these teams practices will commence in June with tournament play beginning in late June and potentially running through August. The teams compete at the District level against other District 12 All Start teams and continue through Sectional and State Tournaments. The 11 and 12 year old tournaments continue through the Regional level and culminate with the Little League Softball World Series. Participation on these teams is a serious commitment and may require practices and/or games 6 or 7 days per week for an extended period.
WWLL Softball Post Season teams have an impressive history and have won multiple District 12, Section 3, State and Regional championships.
Summer Season Recreational Softball
Summer Season Softball will be offered on a “pick up” basis if there is sufficient interest. This is an opportunity for those players who do not want to participate in competitive post season softball to continue playing and developing their skills in a recreational setting. Games would most likely be played once per week with little or no formal practice time.
Fall Season Softball
Fall Ball is played by the same rules used for regular season spring interleague play but is more relaxed and instructional/developmental in nature. Play is against other teams in District 12 and involves travel to neighboring towns.
