Babe Ruth\Del Val Softball (U8 - U16)

2021 SAA Softball Programs
1/2 Grade Intramural Clinic
If you're 8U eligible and totally new to softball, you may want to consider the 1/2 grade program. This is an intramural softball program which will teach the basics of softball in non-competitive environment. Contact Director Greg Tamaccio with additional questions.

Babe Ruth/Del Val Programs
For 8U/10U and 12U we will once again be entering teams in Ridley-Interboro Babe Ruth League and Del Val League. Teams will be formed based on players competition level which will be assessed during Player Evaluations to be scheduled in mid-March.

Additionally, we will open registration for 14U and 18U teams.  

8U leagues are mixture of Coach Pitch, Kid Pitch and Machine Pitch. All other leagues are fast pitch leagues.

As of now, we will be following the same Covid-19 protocols that we used in 2020 Summer\Fall league. We will continue to monitor and adjust protocols as situation dictates. 

Softball Equipment
Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are not allowing sharing of equipment. Each girl should have cleats (non-metal), fielder's mask, helmet w/facemask, glove and bat. The two leagues we play in have slightly different bat policies. Both require them to have USA ,ASA  or ISA certification which is essentially anything you would find at C&M or Dick's Sporting Goods. Del Val has additional requirement of allowing only single walled bats, no composites. Composites are rather pricey and I would only recommended them for 12U and up. 

Babe Ruth Tournament Information

Babe Ruth league players will be eligible to play in District and State Tournaments. Being that we have a small pool of players in Babe Ruth divisions there will be NO tournament tryouts. The March evaluations will qualify them for tournament teams, then final selections will be done by division coaches in May. Selected players will then need to pay tournament fee on SAA website in May.
