FAQs

 

When and where will practices be held?  The practice schedule will be set once teams are rostered. Practices are held on the softball field at 10 Maddox Lane, Amissville. Depending on each team's coach's preferences, practices may be held one, two, or more times per week.

When and where will games be played?  Games are usually played on Saturdays, though games on an occasional Sunday (afternoons) are possible, as are very rare games on weeknights if an opposing team is close enough. Games on weekends may be either singles OR double-headers. If scheduled, double-headers are fewer innings than a single regulation game. Games are played on our home field as well as away: these can be as far as Northern Virginia and south of Charlottesville. Generally, the older the team's girls, the farther it may travel to play (and those teams come here to play, as well).

Is there a team for my daughter?  We form teams according to what ages of girls register. If you register your daughter(s), but no team becomes available, your registration fee will be returned to you. Please don't wait to see if there are enough girls before you register your daughter...if enough do that, there WON'T be a team for her!

What does my daughter need in order to play?  She will need a glove and cleats. The glove is the more important thing; younger girls can certainly play and practice in regular sneakers, but cleats are important for girls 10 years old and up for them to play their best. For games, long black ball pants and socks will be needed; sock color will be determined for each team. Once color is decided upon, socks (and the black ball pants) may be purchased through the league OR on your own.

What does the league provide?  Each player will receive a jersey. Of course, the registration fee goes towards lots of other things: game balls, insurance, equipment, etc. (no, coaches don't get a penny to coach!).

What if we can't afford the registration fee...or to buy our daughter a glove or cleats?  Just let us know. We'll make it possible for your daughter to play, regardless!

 

Let us know if you have other questions; we'll be happy to help!
