9) How is team placement determined?

All new players are entered into the draft. Returning players that are registered on time will be given priority to return to their Fall 2017 team (if returning), or may request to enter the draft. To REQUEST to RETURN to the prior Fall team please note in the request section.  Teams will be formed at the end of registration in mid-February 2018. If registered late, girls are NOT guaranteed to return to their Fall 2017 team and will be placed where there is roster availability.

10) 8UC Coach Pitch and 8UK Modified Kid/Coach Pitch Divisions

If a returning player, check with your coach to see if team is staying together and will play in 8UC or 8UK divisions described in detail below. You can choose to return to that team if on prior Fall 2017 and they are playing in desired play division. If not playing in desired play division, you may enter the draft as described above.

8UC - This full coach pitch division is the developmental league. The rules are modified in that each batter receives pitches from a coach pitcher until she puts the ball in play, strikes out or receives 5 pitches. All players must play at least one infield position by the third inning.

8UK - While still a recreational league, the level of competitiveness in this division is considerably higher. It is recommended girls have played for at least one year and one to two seasons of the coach pitch league before participating in this division. Coaches will pitch 1st, 2nd, and 3rd innings and return in the 6th inning (5 pitches; ball in play or 3 strikes).
