The 8U Softball division is designed for girls ages seven and eight. League age is determined by age of player as of December 31, 2017. Among teammates of their own age and experience level, players begin building and refining their fundamental softball skills while they begin to understand game strategy. 8U softball is played under the official Babe Ruth Softball rules, but implements some special rules as necessary for the development and welfare of this young age group. The game is played on a 60-foot diamond with a pitching distance of 35 feet. A pitching machine will be used and special base running rules are in effect.
**Registration Fee for 8U Softball is $95
The last day to register & be guaranteed a spot is February 11th. After that a $50 late fee applies with no guarantee your child will have a spot on a team. There may be a wait-list. However, we will do as much as possible to get all interested girls into the league.

There are new Babe Ruth League certification requirements for prospective managers and coaches. Please complete the manager/coach application on the registration link and visit www.ripkencoaching.org to learn more about the coaching education requirements.
