White Marsh Recreation Council offers a softball program each spring (April to June) for girls in the 5-7, 8-10, 11-13 and 14-18 age divisions. Our program is designed to provide players with a fun-filled atmosphere while teaching each athlete good sportsmanship and fundamental skills necessary to play the game.
Girls in the 5-7 bracket play in a clinic-type setting (coaches pitching) before moving up to the 8-10 league where the girls are introduced to “flat-pitch.” This style helps to prepare the girls for the “modified fast-pitch” style of play (pitching as fast as one can, but no bunting or base stealing) that they will see in the 11-13 age bracket. Girls in the 14-18 age bracket play the full “fast-pitch” style with bunting and base stealing but are allowed to pitch “sling-shot”(underhand) if preferred.
For girls interested in a more competitive atmosphere, White Marsh also offers “Tournament” teams in several age brackets that play in several local tournaments throughout the season. We also sponsor several teams in various age brackets that play in “Travel” fast-pitch leagues during the summer and fall months.
All “in-house”, Tournament and Travel teams will have the benefit of using our newly purchased pitching machine and hitting trainer. We also provide each team with high quality batting helmets, catching equipment and other necessary items.
