Spring Rec Season

Spring 2021 Softball Season registration is OPEN!

Spring Season Overview

The Spring Recreational Softball Program, runs February through May of each year and provides an instructional environment for girls ages 4-12.  The recreational program is designed to develop RBGSL's players by adding to and enhancing their skills by introducing more advanced skills and more USA Softball rules of play in each succeeding division.

Obviously, with Covid-19 restrictions we are all required to be a bit nimble and flexible as we proceed. This is true for RBGSL as well. Therefore, this year we will proceed with a signup registration that allows you to place your daughter's name on the list for the Spring Season and assuming that we are free to start play according to the dates below your signup will be converted to a full registration where you will be allowed to accept placement and pay for the Spring season registration. No money will be taken at this time.

UPDATE - the following dates have been set for all Divisions for the Spring season:

Registration Closes - January 16th
Player Assessments - January 17th
Practices Begin - January 20th
Opening Ceremonies - TBD

FAQ

Division Ages - RBGSL follows the USA Softball mandated age breaks. The following is a breakdown of each division and ages:
T-Ball (6U) - age 4-6
Rookies (8U) - age 7-8
Division 1 (10U) - age 9-10
Division 2 (12U) - age 11-12

Age Designation - the cutoff date for each Division cutoff is 12/31 for any year. For the 2021 Spring season for example, if your daughter is going to turn 9 after that date, then she will still be eligible for 8U for the spring. If her birthday is before 12/31 then she will be in the 10U Division. The best part is that our online registration process does the evaluation for all of us based upon birth date, so the system will only offer you the appropriate division when registering.

Team Creation and Player Assessments - Rookie (8U) players and older participate in a player assessment in mid-January 2021 to provide an opportunity for coaches and RBGSL Board Members to gauge the skill level of players. A draft is then held to field teams to achieve a relative balance of skill levels across all teams. T-Ball players do not participate in an assessment, rather are randomly placed on a team.

Player Friend Requests - RBGSL attempts to honor player requests to participate with other players in T-Ball only. Such requests are not offered for older ages.

Games/Practices - the following is an overview of how the RBGSL program works:
T-Ball - both games and practices are scheduled on one weekday and most Saturdays. Game length is 1hr and coaches generally ask for players to arrive 30 min prior for warmup. Practices are generally 1hr. Weekday events start as early as 4:30p (so for a game it would be arrive at 4:00p, practice at 4:30p). Saturday games start as early as 9a. From January to early March is all practice and twice per week - 1 weekday and Saturday. From March to May there is one practice and one game per week.

Rookies | Division 1 | Division 2 - both games and practices are scheduled on 1-2 weekday days and most Saturdays. Game length is 1hr 20min and coaches generally ask for players to arrive 1hr prior for warmup. Practices are generally 1hr 30min (longer for pitchers and catchers). Weekday practice events start as early as 4:30p and games at 5:15p. Saturday games start as early as 8a. From January to early March is all practice and 2-3 times per week - weekday(s) and Saturday.
