SVAA's goal is to create an environment where every child will play and learn the game. No tryouts are required.
SVAA has been organizing softball leagues for over 35 years. Our T-Ball league is for Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten and 1st grade girls. Machine pitch is 2-3rd grades (pitching machine speeds: 2nd at 30mph, 3rd at 32mph), and player pitch is 4-6th grades.
Our Spring season runs mid-April through the end of June and covers grades PreK-12. Games will be played on both weeknights and weekends. Rain outs will be rescheduled. Practice days and times are scheduled by the coach. There will be standings and tournaments.
Children have to be 4 years old by April 1st to participate in the Pre Kindergarten program.
There is a substitution rule, which states that no player may sit on the bench for two consecutive defensive innings. Each team must bat its roster. Team size maximum is 14 players.
Detailed information about SVAA softball rules can be found in the Coaches' Guide.
