Central Little League: Charlottesville, VA

General Information

Coach Pitch Softball is designed to build a solid foundation for becoming a successful softball player.  The focus of this division is introducing basic softball concepts such as catching, throwing, hitting, batter safety, base running, fielding, and rules of the game with special emphasis on having fun, working hard, and being a good sport.

The rules are modified to increase player success and confidence and give each kid an equal opportunity to participate and succeed.  At this level, athletes are learning how to play defense at multiple infield positions and how to make outs. Typically all players will get a chance to bat each inning. Players get 5 pitches from the coach, then a batting tee is used if a pitched ball is not hit.
