12U

12U - Participation in this age group is open to all girls that will be 11 or 12 years old before 1/1/2021. Starting at this age group, the skill levels of the girls start to vary a great deal and in order to continue to allow all players to have a positive softball experience, the league is split into "A" and "B" divisions.  HYA holds evaluations to insure that the players are competing in the appropriate division.  Team records and standings are kept and playoffs are held at the end of the season in late June.

At this age group, pitching becomes more of a challenge as a bigger ball is used - 12" - and the pitching distance is moved to 40 feet. Batters are also now allowed to walk - no more hitting off of tees or coaches. Other situations that will now be introduced at this age level include multiple base stealing, base advancement on passed balls, stealing home, dropped 3rd strike, and infield fly rule.  A mouth guard or face guard is highly recommended and encouraged for this age group. Softball cleats are optional - no metal spikes are allowed. Players are required to supply their own glove and batting helmet.  Team jerseys and socks are provided.  Players will be required to supply their own softball pants (black).

The fall softball season is run by the Susquehanna Valley Umpires Association. Practices are usually twice a week and games are on Saturday mornings or Sunday afternoons based on field availability. Games are against other associations in Lancaster and Lebanon Counties.

The registration fee for the 2021 fall season is $125.  

Registration will close on July 30th..

Please contact Michelle Valeri-Groff with any questions about this program.
