Spring Recreational Softball

 

Mini League Softball (Ages 6-8)

The Monroe Mini League Softball is a league for girls between the ages of 6 and 8.  Players who are age 6 that would like to participate in this league must have played one year of tee-ball or request an evaluation by the league managers to determine eligibility. The league gives these girls an opportunity to develop their fundamentals and play competitive softball.  The Monroe teams play against themselves and teams from Trumbull and Stratford.  A certain number of games will be played in Trumbull and Stratford. It is a coach pitch league for a majority of the season.   Girls are encouraged to learn how to pitch with the opportunity to try out their pitching skills during a game near the end of the season.  At the end of the season, an All-Star team is selected to play against other teams in Fairfield County.  This is a good league for your daughter to learn by playing all of the softball positions and develop her skills and love for the game. The cost for registering in this league is $125 per player.

Minor League Softball (Ages 9-10)

The Monroe Minor League Softball is a league for girls between the ages of 9 and 10.  This league gives these girls an opportunity to enhance their skills as they continue to learn the fundamentals.  The Monroe teams are selected by a draft that is overseen by the Player Agent and the VP of Softball and play against themselves and teams from Trumbull and Stratford.  A certain number of games will be played in Trumbull and Stratford. It is a player pitch league but a coach will come into pitch during the inning after two walks and three balls on a batter.   Unlike the Mini League, girls are pitching most of the game and are given an opportunity to steal twice an inning.   Girls are encouraged to try to pitch (mound is 35 ft. from home plate) and catch as well as play all of the positions.  At the end of the season, an All-Star team is selected to play against other teams in Fairfield County.  This is a good league for your daughter to continue to develop her skills and love for the game. The cost for registering in this league is $125 per player. 

8 Year Old players that would like to play up to Minors must register for the Mini League above and then indicate through that registration process that they would like to play up to the higher age level.
 

Major League Softball (Ages 11-12)

The Monroe Majors League Softball is a league for girls between the ages of 11 and 12.  This league gives these girls the most realistic experience of playing the same game as the Masuk High School team.  The Monroe teams are selected by a draft and play against themselves and teams from Trumbull and Stratford.  A certain number of games will be played in Trumbull and Stratford. It is a player pitch league.  Unlike the other leagues above, the girls are pitching without the help from the coach and they are able to steal throughout the inning.   Girls are encouraged to try to pitch (mound is 40ft from home plate) and catch as well as play all of the positions but at this level, girls are beginning to play certain positions that meet their skill level.  At the end of the season, an All-Star team is selected to play against other teams in Fairfield County.  This is a good league for your daughter to continue to develop her skills and love for the game in a more competitive league. The cost for registering in this league is $150 per player.

Travel Softball

 

In addition to the recreational options detailed above, Monroe Baseball & Softball will offer travel softball opportunities for girls ages 8-12.
 

Key points to note about the spring season include:

  1. Any player playing travel softball must also play recreational softball as detailed above. Schedules will be coordinated so that there is a minimum amount of conflict between both programs so as to work to ensure all players can participate in both travel and recreational games.
  2. Travel softball is a full commitment and players must attend all games and practices unless an absence is cleared with the head coach. There may be games and practices over April break so if you are planning on being away over the April break, please let the coach know.


If you are interested in partciipating in travel softball, please indicate your interest as part of the recreational registration process. There will be a separate box that you can check indicating interest.
