    a team all in an environment of learning and fun At this level the first half of the season is T ball In the second half children learn to face pitching which is done by coaches and if available parents who are always encouraged to assist and participate In setting up teams for the Instructional League we try as hard as we can to keep kids together with their friends We encourage parents to sign their children up for this league with the names of up to three other children they d like to be with At this age when many of these girls can be quite shy we find this to be a good way to get them to come out and learn this game However once they move up to our Pony League they will be placed on teams based upon their skills and abilities rather than on who their friends are or how they get to the game While the other leagues are not considered competitive by school standards they are certainly more competitive than the Instructional League where we don t even keep score in the games The 2014 season is tentatively scheduled to begin on

    1st Even though the pitching is still done by parents at this level this is where SYAC Girls Softball begins to become competitive Once kids hit the Pony League many of them may have already been to camp or met kids who don t go to their schools and are thus not traumatized by being placed on a team that could potentially be made up entirely of children they have never met At this age we no longer honor requests to be with specific other children which if you think about it a while is really is a good thing We also do not honor requests for kids to be together for carpooling purposes see FAQs page At this level SYAC Girls Softball begins to focus more on the sport than on the social aspect of the game In setting up teams for the Pony League we work hard to create balanced teams rather than simply putting kids together with their friends as we do when they re in our Instructional League At this age we strongly discourage parents from trying to get their children on the same teams as friends for whatever reason This is a competitive league and

    the several minutes it could take to appear on your screen It is from 2004 s Registration Evaluation sessions taken one of the three nights in January that it was held the HB Thompson Middle School Auxiliary Gym It shows what happens when the girls get inside and clearly illustrates what you re supposed to do when you get in there for those unsure of themselves And it should dispense once and for all with the mystery of what goes on when the door to the gym closes and your daughter disappears inside to another one of those places you can t follow her Get your daughter a pair of cleats When this website went online in 2003 we said that cleats could be purchased in some places like KMart Modells or SportsAuthority for under 20 00 a pair Unfortunately that is no longer true Some of those stores are no longer in our area but more importantly the price of cleats has gone up It is worth noting that you can spend around as little as 30 to as much as hundreds of dollars on a pair of cleats as this link clearly illustrates But if you re paying that much you re paying way too much especially for younger girls whose feet are still growing The important thing is that cleats will be better for them to pay in than sneakers They can even be purchased online at places like these and we ll post more as we find them http www ringor com http www softball com index html on home page scroll down and click Shoes on the left http www eastbaystore com While we do lend girls baseball gloves during Evaluations it s another thing during the regular season Between now end of February and
