Welcome to Girls' Softball! The SFLL Softball Program focuses on Fundamental skill development, creating lasting Friendships, sportsmanship based Fun, and preparing players for a Future in Softball.
SFLL Girls’ Softball Spring 2020 season is adapting in response to registration trends of the past few years.
Middle School Age players - Majors(12U) program and Seniors(15U) program - will be fielding teams in the Marin Girls’ Softball (MGS) league. The MGS league plays on Saturdays and weekday evenings. The SF teams will play a majority of games on Saturdays in Marin with a few possibly played on Friday evenings in the Presidio. One practice a week will be scheduled, possibly on Fridays, location and time tbd depending on Rec & Park lottery.
Older Elementary School Age players - Minors(10U): 4th & 5th graders with possible inclusion of older 3rd graders with softball/baseball experience - will likely have a group of 22-28 girls playing games on Sundays in the city, plus one weekday evening practice.
If enough coaches and players register we may be able to accommodate an additional practice evening or location for flexibility. A player would only be expected to attend one practice. If a surge of registrations come in for more than 40 players, along with additional coaching groups, the standard model of four competitive teams will again be possible with games played on Sunday plus a few Friday evening games.
Younger Elementary School Age players - Rookie(8U), Farm (coach pitch): 1st through 3rd graders with possible inclusion of a mature Kindergartener accompanied by a coach parent. This age group needs at least one coach and a few parent helpers to get off the ground. A minimum of 15 players need to register and be willing to meet for a weekday afternoon practice and a weekend scrimmage game in the city.
SFLL Softball for the past ten years has scheduled games on Sunday to avoid conflicts with soccer. That scheduling preference can be changed. If there is enough interest among coaches, parents and players, a group could meet on Saturdays.
The season length and games (dates shown in table below are approximate only) will be finalized once the number of teams for each division is determined.
Spring season softball ages are determined by the age your child is as of December 31, 2019.
