Days/Times Vary

Heads up! This class has already started.

The Ottawa Hills Girls Junior High Softball team will participate in a spring league that is run by Wizard World, a local softball organization in Toledo. This program is not affiliated with the Ottawa Hills School system.

Practices: Practices start in mid-March. Once gym/field availability is determined, a practice schedule will be communicated with the team. Once the games start, there will be approximately one practice a week, weather permitting.

Games: Games will start late March/early April. Typically there will be one game played during the week and double header games will be played on Sunday afternoons. Any make up games will be played during the week if possible.

End of Season Tournament: Single elimination tournament will be held Maumee May 8-9. The game schedule will be available on Wednesday before the tournament.

Summary of League Rules: Games have a 1 hour, 45 minute time limit, meaning no new inning is started after 1 hour and 45 minutes from the first pitch; on double header games the time limit is 1 ½ hours. There are run rule limits. Every player is in the batting order whether she is in the field or not.

Philosophy: Every player will get an opportunity to play in every game. Also, this league is about learning the fundamentals and playing the game of fast pitch softball and it is meant to be a fun league.

Each player will supply their own: softball mitt, pants, cleats. Bats, helmets and balls will be supplied. Players may use their own bat and helmet with extra chin protection if they choose.

Registration fees will cover league entry fee, umpires for games, shirts, game balls, end of season tournament fees and insurance fee to Village Life.
