Little League Softball (Ages 5-14)
New Canaan Softball has aligned our Divisions to enhance the skills and aptitude of our players at all ages and development levels. Our youngest divisions are grade-based, providing for positive social interactions with classmates and ease of scheduling with other sports. Our older divisions are age and ability based, consistent with other national softball programs. Grouping players of similar ability provides the greatest developmental environment for our players while also maximizing safety. Players in grades 2-8 will participate in an evaluation session in March to facilitate player drafts and team selection.

Scheduling and Volunteer Opportunities
New Canaan Softball encourages children to participate in multiple sports and activities, which develops well-rounded youths. We ask that within your registration you provide us with the other activities that your child will be participating in during the spring season so we can attempt to minimize conflicts when placing girls on their respective teams. Final schedules will not be available until late March/early April. Additionally, we are always looking for volunteers to become head coaches, assistant coaches, or to help the Board with our league events. If you would like to volunteer please also indicate that within your registration.
