AAA Softball

Ages 6 - 8 (USA Softball Age Guidelines)

Often a family's first introduction to baseball/softball, Woburn Little League's AAA Softball Division provides coaching instruction from parent volunteers & Woburn Little League board members. Our coaches are responsible for teaching the fundamentals of throwing, catching, batting, fielding, and base running. The main focus is on introduction to fundamentals in a fun, safe, team-oriented environment.

TEAM ASSIGNMENT

The AAA SOFTBALL Commissioner assigns coaches to teams, and players are then assigned to teams by the Commissioner with a goal of creating balanced teams. An effort is made to assign players from the same school district and to keep rosters at 10-12 players. Players receive a uniform shirt & headband.

SEASON OVERVIEW

The spring season commences with the Woburn Little League Opening Day parade. All players are encouraged to march in the parade with their team.

The season then runs from late April through mid-June, and typically ends on Father's Day weekend. A season consists of 10-12 games. The season concludes with "Gonsalves Day", where the players have an opportunity to play at Gonsalves Field and have their names announced when they come up to bat.

GAMES/PRACTICES

AAA Softball is scheduled one day a week and Sunday mornings. (Final schedule TBD). Sunday sessions should last about 90 minutes. The first 45 minutes will be a clinic-based practice where fundamentals are worked on (throwing, catching, proper batting stance and address at the plate, fielding position, fielding of ground balls, running the bases). The last 45 minutes consists of a game against the designated opponent. Depending on number of registrations, games should consist of 5 - 6 players per team. The game is seen as a reward for the practice and instructional time. The most important time spent is working on teaching the kids solid baseball fundamentals.

After the game, players line up at home plate and shake hands with their opponents. Sportsmanship is extremely important and is introduced at the youngest of ages.

Practices are held primarily at Gonsalves Field and Veterans Field based upon availability.
