 League Descriptions


This is for girls aged 5 and 6 as of January 1. 

  • The focus of this league is on fundamentals: throwing/catching/hitting.
  • Games are coach pitch.
  • Girls will use a 10" ball. 
  • Expect one practice, and one game per week, usually with the practice on Saturday and the game on Sunday. 
  • Games and most, if not all, practices will be at First Baptist Church.


This is for girls aged 7 and 8 as of January 1. 

  • The league continues to work on fundamentals, while beginning some work on defensive situations and base running.
  • Games are still coach pitch.
  • Girls now use an 11" ball. 
  • Expect one weeknight practice, and one game per week, usually on Saturdays.
  • Games and most, if not all, practices will be at Medlock Park.


This league is for 9 and 10 year old girls as of January 1.

  • We are still focusing on fundamentals, but in 10U we start girl pitch with an 11" ball from 35 ft.
  • We use coach "rescue pitchers" as well. Having rescue pitchers mean no one gets walked, unless they are hit by a pitch from a girl. This keeps the game moving while still allowing for pitching to develop.
  • Players are also allowed to steal 2nd and 3rd when the ball gets past the catcher.
  • Players have one weeknight practice and one game per week, usually on Saturdays but with some Sunday games. 
  • All games and most practices will be at First Baptist Church.

12U (Spring): 

This league is for 11 and 12 year old girls as of January 1

  • This league is entirely girl pitch. We do not have rescue pitchers in 12U.
  • Pitching distance moves back 5 feet and the girls transition to a 12" softball.
  • Stealing is allowed.
  • Players have one weeknight practice and one game per week, usually on Saturdays.

Middle School League (Fall): 

This is our 12U league, but in the fall. This league is available in the fall for all 6th, 7th, and 8th grade girls, regardless of their age.

  • The same rules from our 12U league apply, but we align players based on their middle school, or designated high school.
  • If your school does not have enough players to form a full team, we have combination teams.
  • Middle School games are usually on Sundays. 
  • Practices will be at Oakhurst, First Baptist Church, and Lakeside High School depending on the team (e.g., Decatur Middle school will likely practice at Oakhurst).
All-Star/Select Softball:

is a competitive program in which more highly skilled DHYS rec players compete as teams against other, similar teams in interleague games and tournaments throughout the year. Once a team is selected in the spring, it will continue as the All-star/Select team into the summer, etc. until the next tryouts are held. For more information, click here.
