10U

10U Traveling League

The 10U Traveling program is designed to provide a fun and competitive fastpitch softball experience for beginning and intermediate players ages 9 and 10. They will compete against teams of similar skills and commitment. 

Development of players continues to be critical; at the 10U level each athlete is to learn and play several positions. Playing time each player receives is balanced (not necessarily equal) and will depend on attitude, skill level, commitment, absences, injuries and game/tournament situations. At early season tournaments and at less competitive games throughout the season, playing time should be relatively equal and shared between players within the same positions. As the season progresses, the most competitive athletes in each position may need to play more in order to give the team a chance to win more competitive games.

Program Goals:

  • Learn and develop basic softball skills
  • Learn to love playing softball
  • Learn how to contribute to a team and how to become a good teammate
