Spring Rec Programs
Rye Girls Softball is transitioning for the 2022 season to being affiliated with Little League Softball. As such, we are adjusting some of our divisions to conform to age limits and Little League guidance. “League age” is determined by the player’s age as of January 1st. For example, if your child’s birthday is March 15, 2009, then their “league age” for Spring 2022 will be 12 years old.
Tee Ball - Players are 6 years old and/or in Kindergarten. Focus is on fundamentals and basic softball skills with games introduced midway through the season.
- Lower: Players are league age 7 and 8 (generally 1st and 2nd grade)
- Upper: Players are league age 9 and 10 (generally 3rd and 4th grade)
Major Division – Players are league age 11 and 12 (generally 5th – 7th grade)
Senior Division – Players are league age 12 - 14 (generally 7th, 8th and 9th grade)
Note: Minor or Major players who have demonstrated a high level of skill may request permission to “play up” in a higher division. These players will be evaluated and placement will be contingent on registration numbers in order to manage roster sizes.
Rye Girls Softball offers a more competitive option for its players which is in addition to their mandatory participation in our Spring Recreational season. We participate in the Tri-County Softball League, which encompasses club and town travel teams from throughout the Westchester, Putnam and New York City area and attend one or two weekend tournaments. Travel will be primarily in southern Westchester County, though tournaments may be farther away.
Travel ball requires a different commitment level than our Spring Recreational program. All players are expected to attend all practices and games consistently. A lack of attendance will result in diminished playing time. The goal for Competitive Travel is to field strong travel teams at all levels and we do not guarantee all players will be selected or that players will get equal playing time. You can expect at least 1 practice during the week and a doubleheader on each weekend.
Spring: April - June
Summer: June - July
Fall: September to early November
All of our travel programs are run in partnership with Warrior Sports Academy to provide enhanced training and indoor facilities.
