This is a Special Beginner Program designed just for little ones born after January 1, 2011.
There are a few changes to our Softball Widget Division this year. Our intent is to cosistently re-evaluate our program to make it fun and impactful for our players, coaches and parents.
The first two weeks of our season will be organized practices with all teams indoors learning basic skills with consistent drills across all teams.
Games and practices will be combined.
30 minute practice followed by 2-3 innings of game play.
We will be set up as t-ball to develop kids skills. All innings are hitting off the tee. No coach pitch. We hope this will improve the pace of play and will get kids more involved in the field. Coaches are still encouraged to incorporate coach pitch into practice time.
Every player bats every inning.
Players will play all positions
Fast-Pitch Softball-– Orland Park Recreational Fast-Pitch Softball is played during the Spring Season and is our largest sport. The Divisions range from Pre-K through 9th Grade.
