The Grades 1-2 Freshwomen Division runs from early April through mid-June. This is an instructional league where the focus is on fundamentals: throwing, catching, field positions, base running, and proper hitting mechanics. Coaches toss easy pitches to batters and score is not kept. No called strikes. No umpires.
We understand that at this age your daughter may be trying different activities. We encourage girls to participate in other activities such as soccer, dance, theater, or lacrosse. Although we hope that your daughter participates in as many games as possible, attendance at every game is not mandatory. As a courtesy, we do ask that you inform your coach if your daughter cannot attend a game.
Player is a resident of Milton or attends school in Milton.
Player is enrolled in K, Grade 1 or 2.
The league wants to ensure that we have balance across all teams so we do our best to make sure each team has an equal amount of Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd graders.
Typically 2 games per week. The schedule usually includes games on Saturdays and mid-week @ 6PM.
Coaches will schedule practices before the season but generally there are not practices during the season.
Jerseys are provided and handed out prior to the first game.
