Please visit our 2016 8U Fastpitch Rules webpage for the rules that govern 8U gameplay and its differences from 10U or 12U fastpitch softball.
We no longer host a softball program for our younger daughters with a birthday in 2011 or younger. While softball skill development remains our primary goal for all age groups, we will not jeopardize a child's safety and put them in competition with other fastpitch softball teams which may comprise of girls 2-4 years older than your daughter.
as of "MAY2017"- when regular season games start
if your daughter has a "NOV2010" birthday, she will be 6 throughout the summer season
an opponent's team could have players with birthdays in JAN2008-JUN2008 making them 9 before the start of (or turning 9 during) the season.
any child with a birthday in "2011" or "2012" (5-6 yr olds) would be at a significant size disadvantage compared to other teams which may be comprised of 8-9 yr olds
Some exceptions for may apply but require the approval of EP Fastpitch Softball Commissioners. Please contact us at:
