Fall Ball

Fall is a great time to learn the fastpitch game as the atmosphere is more relaxed than the summer, and it gives our girls more repetitions to continue to improve their skills.  For 2020, the  fall season has been expanded to six weekends followed by a state tournament.  We will have teams at the 10U and 12U levels. 

For Fall 2020, players have the option to play at the same age level or play at the level they will "age up" to for next summer. Summer 2021 will be based on a player's age on 12/31/2020.  2nd year 12U players (2007 birthdays) can play 12U this fall.  We also have opportunities available for 14U players through partnerships with Plymouth Wayzata Youth Softball Association and Eden Prairie Fastpitch if interested.  .  

Games are played on Saturday (10U) and Sunday (12U) afternoons where the girls would play doubleheaders at sites in the local metro area.  Most teams will have a couple of practices prior to the games starting and practices during the week as scheduled by the coach. Practices will begin the week of August 3rd.  .

Sandlot Softball (8U and under)-Back for 2020!

Sandlot softball is a program for players born in 2011-2013. It is designed to be a relaxed environment for our younger players to focus on developing fundamental skills of throwing, catching, fielding, hitting, and base running. Each evening will conclude with a controlled scrimmage or other fun activity.  The goal is to help bridge the developmental gap between Coach Pitch/Tee Ball and the 8U level without the pressure of competing in games.  

The program will be run by coaches from our association with assistance from the Hopkins HS softball players  Players are encouraged to bring a friend.  Their first week is free for your friend, and they will be charged $5 for subsequent weeks they choose to attend.  Players from all associations in our area are welcome.  


The program will run on Sunday nights from 6-7:30 at the Hopkins High School fields (located behind Tanglen Elementary) on August 23rd, August 30, September 13th, and September 20th.
