Major League Softball

Grades 5 & 6 (USA Softball Age Guidelines)

Woburn Little League's third level of softball is the Majors Division. Similar to other divisions, coaching instruction is provided by parent volunteers. At this level, coaches continue teaching baseball fundamentals, participation and teamwork.


Major Softball is an 10-12 year-old ability based division. Players will be required to attend a mandatory tryout in late winter/early spring & will be evaluated by the league and assigned managers. Returning players remain on the same team as the previous year. All vacancies on the team are filled via a new player draft for all eligible players. New players (aged 10) not selected for Majors will be re-assigned to the minors division. All new players aged 11 - 12 will be selected to a team. Players receive a uniform shirt, headband & socks.


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 June. There will be 3-6 teams playing in the Merrimack Valley Girls Softball League (MVGSL). This is a travel division with possible games against Bedford, Billerica, Concord Carlisle, North Reading, Stoneham, Tewksbury, Wakefield & Wilmington.


Each team will play between 3 - 5 away games with 2 games scheduled against the other Woburn teams. The teams will play at least 2 games a week but possibly more. At the end of the year the team with the best record will be crowned regular season champion, each team will qualify for the playoffs with one team being crowned champion.

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.
