Softball Leagues

6U League

Starting with Spring 2019, the Franklin Regional Athletic Association is introducing a 6U softball league.  6U is an instructional league for girls between the ages of 4 and 6 years old.  This is a tee-ball, so all girls will hit from a tee at the beginning of the season.  As the season progress, coaches will pitch to the girls to help them prepare for the transition to 8U softball.  Girls will learn the fundamentals of the game (outs, runs, etc.) and the basics of throwing, catching, fielding, hitting and base running while having fun with their friends.

Players should have their own glove and bat.  Coaches will be supplied with batting helmets, but most players will use their own helmet. Cleats, batting gloves, heart guards, and face guards are recommended.

In this initial season, all games will be played against other FRAA 6U teams.

8U League

8U is an instructional league for girls between the ages of 6 and 8 years old.  While we are a fast pitch organization, this is a coach pitch league.  Coaches will pitch appropriately to each girl so everyone hits and a tee will be used as necessary. At this level, girls will continue to learn the basics of throwing, catching, fielding, and hitting while having fun with their friends. We will also incorporate more rules into the game and start to introduce strategies of fast pitch softball.

Players should have their own glove and bat.  Coaches will be supplied with batting helmets and catchers gear, but most players tend to buy their own helmet. Cleats, batting gloves, heart guards, and face guards are recommended.

Opponents include other Franklin Regional teams and teams from Kiski and Penn Township.

10U League

10U is primarily for 9 and 10 year olds. This level is girl pitch. Girls will continue to learn throwing, catching, fielding, and hitting, while also learning how to fast pitch. In this league the 8U rules are expanded to include girls pitching, walks, stealing bases, sliding, and more competitive strategies. 

Girls should have their own glove, helmet, bat, and cleats. Coaches will be supplied with catchers gear. At this age, helmets must have a facemask and chin strap.  Heart guards, face guards, and batting gloves are recommended.

We participate in the Eastern Fast Pitch League. Home games will be played at Murrysville Community Park or Townsend Park and we will travel to communities such as Delmont, Penn Township, Monroeville, White Oak, Norwin (PAL), Plum, and Penn Hills.
