Welcome to OPYBS Girls 10U page!
For 2021, girls born in 2010 or 2011 are eligible for 10U. In the Softball program, girls may “play up” to the next level with permission from the VP of Softball. Girls may not play down, except in cases of developmental or physical disability.
The 10U league is a competitive player-pitch league focused on developing skills in all facets of the game. This league is appropriate for anyone in this age range at all skill levels, including travel club players.
There will be a Player Evaluation later this Spring. This is an independent assessment of each girl’s skills provided by the Concordia University Softball staff and players to help the league create balanced teams. Please note, this is not a “tryout”. All eligible girls who sign up will be on a team. The purpose is only to help the league president and coaches assemble teams with a goal of competitive balance.
This league uses an 11” softball, bases are at a 60’ distance and pitching is from a 35’ distance. There is a 16 game regular season starting in April and extending into June, followed by a playoff series culminating with a Village Championship Series. There is also an All-Star Game for this league.
Regular season games are typically scheduled on weeknights, leaving Friday and weekends to accommodate travel club practice and tournaments. Any weekend games that are scheduled will be done so that they don’t conflict with travel team schedules. Games are usually played at Carroll, Longfellow, Brooks and OPRF High School softball fields. Additional/alternate times and fields may be added as space, time and weather permit.
