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 are played typically either at 6 p.m. or 8 p.m. from Monday to Thursday (note: Mites never play at 8 p.m.). Squirts will only play at 8 p.m. once school is finished. Nights vary for all divisions, depending on the number of teams in each division.
