Teams will practice separately on Tuesday evenings with the focus on fundamental skills, rules of the game, and general gameplay. Teams will then compete on Thursdays evenings with no scores or standings recorded. Game schedules are created and shared with parents in late May. Those participants who are 8 years old, may also consider playing Windmill Softball or Little League.
