Softball season typically begins mid-May, once all fields are clear of snow and water. Season ends in August with the final tournament weekend. Girls will play between 12-20 games per season, depending on the division. Coaches will draft their teams at the beginning of May, and contact their players a week before the season start date. 


Depending on divisions, games played are typically either at 6 p.m. or 8 p.m. from Monday to Thursday (note: Mites never play at 8 p.m.). Squirts typically play on Mondays and Wednesdays, Peewee on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Bantam on Mondays and Wednesdays and Midget on Tuesdays and Thursdays (subject to change).

Players from Mites through Intermediate are to provide their own glove & helmet with full face cage. Cleats are optional, however no metal cleats are allowed in any age division. At the beginning of the season, players will receive a jersey and ball shorts. Full uniform must be worn for all games.  Full uniform consists of ball jersey, ball shorts (provided) or black ball pants, and red or white knee-high ball socks. 

KMGS provides each team with a couple age appropriate bats, catcher equipment and balls. NEW for 2019, KMGS will also be providing 3 infielder face masks per team for those who want to wear them while pitching and/or playing 1st and 3rd bases. 


Players can also use their own bats - we recommend the following bat sizes based on age division of the player: 

  • Mites - 26-28 inch x 15-17oz
  • Squirts - 28-30 inch x 16-19oz
  • Peewee - 30-32 inch x 17-21oz
  • Bantam - 32-34 inch x 19-24oz
