softball general information
OPENING DAY IS MARCH 26TH!
WHO CAN PLAY AND HOW MUCH IT WILL COST
The City of Foley offers Youth Softball for kids from 5 – 16 years old. Age divisions and leagues include:
6U (ages 5 and 6 year olds) $65
8U (ages 7 and 8 olds) $75
10U (ages 9 and 10 year olds) $85
12U (ages 11 and 12 year olds) $95
16U (ages 13 to 16 year olds) $100
Your coach will contact you the week of March 7th to let you know when you will have your first practice.
Practices will be 2-3 days a week until games start. Once games begin, your practice schedule will depend on your game schedule. Teams are not allowed to meet more than 3 days a week. No games or practices will be scheduled on Wednesdays, Saturdays or Sundays with the exception of the games played on Opening Day.
In the event of rain, we will make a decision no sooner than 4:00pm to cancel games/practices. Coach’s will be notified immediately and will be responsible for passing that information along to their team. We will also post information on our Foley Recreation Facebook page.
Foley Recreation will provide uniforms and equipment (bats, helmets, balls, and catchers equipment) for each team. You will need to purchase the following items:
Bat (if you prefer your own, it must have a USSSA stamp)
Batting Helmet (if you prefer your own, 6U-10U require face guard)
Player safety is always our number one priority. Here is a great link from the Andrew’s Institute on injury prevention in youth baseball.
