Fall Ball Registration for Grades 1-9 Begins Today!
REGISTER HERE FOR 2018 FALL BALL SEASON
2018 Fall Softball – Program Overview:
New Canaan Softball is offering girls entering 1st through 9th grade, the opportunity to play "Fall Ball” in our recreation league. Fall Ball is a fantastic way to introduce new players to the sport or continue developing the skills of players who participated in the spring program.
Older divisions will practice during the week and play teams from other towns in our area, primarily on weekends. Our first grade players will participate in a weekly clinic that introduces the basic softball skills and knowledge through stations and mini skill challenges, as well as scrimmages.
New Canaan Softball divisions are aligned 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. Beginning at age 8, our divisions are age and ability based. Grouping players of similar ability provides a developmental environment that allows all our players the opportunity to expand their skills. For Fall Ball, players age 8-14 are placed in divisions based on coach evaluations from previous season participation.
