Let the registration commence! We're looking forward to another season; we hope you're part of it!


EP Fastpitch Player Evaluations

The purpose of conducting evaluations is to determine team placement. Evaluations will be conducted by a group of coaches outside of the EP Fastpitch Association and will assess each player's skills, including (but not limited to): hitting & bunting, fielding (infield & outfield), throwing, base running, etc. 

This is a closed-door evaluation; parents must wait outside the Activity Center while evaluations are conducted.

FAQ for Families New or Interested in Softball

The bulk of all information is found in the 2017 EP Fastpitch tab (Spring/Summer League Info webpage). Be sure to explore its subpages too. Here are some key webpages:

  • 2017 Key Dates (page) - Stay in tune with what's coming up in our program
    • When does practice start? When does the season begin? When does the season end?
  • Age Division Structure (page) - Expectations for our softball programs for each age group. 
    • What day does my team play their regular season games? 
  • 2017 8U Fastpitch Rules (page) - The game of fastpitch softball has to be slightly modified to accommodate for our growing daughters. 
  • Volunteering (page) - Why do I have to volunteer? What do I have to do? When am I likely to be assigned?
  • What is the practice schedule? What we do know is what day games are played (see above- Age Division Structure). Practice schedules for any team will be organized by the head coach (typically one of the parents of a player on a team) and would be based on their availability. We have not formed teams because we have not conducted Player Evaluations to determine which player belongs on any certain team.

2016-2017 Offseason Pitcher/Catcher Clinics

Naturally, we recognize that the two most important positions on any softball team are the pitchers and catchers; so we are providing offseason instruction for girls playing these positions. We believe that fastpitch pitchers and catchers are made in the offseason! 

If you are interested in becoming a fastpitch pitcher or catcher, or becoming a better one, then the EPFPA Clinics and Open Gym will help you achieve your goals. Pitchers and catchers will be organized by age, experience and ability to allow for more focused instruction. All pitchers must provide someone to catch their pitches. Parent Tip: bring a 5-gallon bucket to sit on; your back and your knees will thank you!

Cost: FREE !!
