6U

Division for girls born in 2016, 2017, and 2018.

Price includes jersey with name and number, socks, USA player and adult background check fees, equipment provided to coaches, photograph, clinics for the girls, training for the volunteer coaches, and field maintenance.

6U teams typically have 8-10 players, with one field practice and one game per week from the end of February through the beginning of May. Score is not kept in games, and there are no umpires. The games are played only off the tee for the first few games, then coach pitch is allowed later in the season. There will also be an “all-star” game or games for girls who would like to participate. Typically this is held the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend during our War at the Shore Tournament, hosted by Redondo Sunset at Alta Vista.

8U

This division is for girls born in 2014 and 2015. Price includes jersey with name and number, socks, USA player and adult background check fees, equipment provided to coaches, photograph, clinics for the girls, training for the volunteer coaches, field maintenance, and umpire fees.

8U teams typically have 10-12 players, with one field practice, one cage practice, and at least one game per weekend, with additional games possible during the week. Every effort is made to give this division early practice and game times – as early as 4pm on weekdays for practices and as early as 4 or 5pm for games. “Field” practice for 8U is typically held on grass or turf rather than on the game fields. If practice is on one of the game fields, this practice may be shared with another team, with one team using the infield for half of practice, the other using the infield for the other half.

8U may offer Select and All-Star programs at additional costs to players who evaluate for and are selected onto those teams.
