Recreation Softball is for everyone!
Open to girls in Grades PK-9 (does not need to attend SB schools), our recreation teams in each level will be playing other recreation teams from various local towns that are compatible with our recreation skill level. If you participate in another Spring sport or activity and have concerns, contact us so we can try to work together. We encourage multi-sport athletes; our goal is to see kids on the field! Registration opens in January; Practices begin in March and Games are played during April & May, mostly on weeknights.
Our "KinderBats" level is for our Kindergarten-age players. Teams at this level meet on weekends during April & May with each session lasting roughly an hour. Time will be determined after registration is completed and is based on Coach availability. KinderBats is designed for first-timers and is the perfect way to establish your daughter's passion for the game. Players are introduced to the sport with non-competitive activities focused on fun, fitness, and fundamentals. Striking out and making errors are all part of the fun as well as making new friends on the field! Tennis Balls, Whiffle Balls, and Softee "training" softballs are used to keep players safe. Pre-K-aged players are welcome if mature enough to participate. Child must turn age 5 by this upcoming October 1st.
Our Travel Division (Grades 1-8) is separate and more competitive. Games are played on mostly weeknights during June & July against Town teams from Bergen County. Most Travel is within a 15-20 minute drive. Most games are on weeknights with additional practice times.
Our Coaches are volunteers and coaching help is always needed and appreciated. Contact us for more information on how to become a volunteer Head Coach, Assistant Coach or Team Parent.
Saddle Brook resident Taryn DiGiacomo donated softball bats, gloves, and helmets to our recreation program. The equipment will be used for young athletes who are in need. Pictured are Taryn and softball commissioner Eric Torbic.
