Rec Teams

The WDMGS Rec League is a recreational softball program that is open to all girls. Leagues are determined by age and coached by volunteers.

The Rec League begins in late April and runs through June. Each participant is responsible for providing their own softball pants, softball glove, closed toe shoes/cleats (no metal spikes), bat (optional), and batter’s helmet with proper face guard and chin strap. Also, a softball fielding mask. Each girl will receive a team t-shirt to complete their uniform.

Bitty Ball (Pre-K - K):

This league is for girls in Pre-K and Kindergarten. Cost for this league is $85.00. This age group focuses on learning the basic fundamentals of softball while having their coach pitch to them. After three swings, if the girl has not put the softball into play, a tee will be brought out for her to hit from. This age group usually has one or two games per week (10 games total) and practices are left to the coach’s discretion. Players are usually placed on teams according to the elementary school that they attend and/or their address. There are no umpires for this league.

Petite League (1st - 2nd):

This league is for girls who are in 1st - 2nd grades and costs $110.00. This age group focuses on learning the basic fundamentals of softball while having their coach pitch to them. This age group may have one to two scheduled games per week (12 games total) and practices are left to the coach’s discretion. Players are usually placed on teams according to the elementary school that they attend and/or their address. There are no umpires for this league.

Junior League (3rd - 4th):

This league is for girls who are in 3rd - 4th grades and costs $125.00. This age group also focuses on learning the basic fundamentals of softball while having the opponent pitch to them. In order to continue focusing on hitting there are no “walks” in this league. If a batter receives 4 balls from the pitcher, the batter’s count will receive one ball and two strikes in their count and their coach will then pitch to them. This age group may have one to two scheduled games per week (12 games total) and practices are left to the coach’s discretion. All 3rd graders (plus 4th graders who are new to this league) go through a league round-up process in February. The players are then drafted and placed on teams. A 3rd grader then will remain on that same team for the next season. This league begins the use of one umpire at every game and standings are kept.
