Welcome to BBGC Fast Pitch Softball Program.    The Bowie Boys & Girls Club (BBGC) offers Fast Pitch Softball for girl’s ages 5-15 years of age.  The Fast Pitch Softball program is designed to teach the skills and rules of fast pitch softball while having fun.    BBGC Softball also teaches the girl’s self-esteem, good sportsmanship, team work, motivation and confidence. 

* There will be 2 major fundraisers for Softball this year.  The first one will be in April and the second is our 8U Tournament in June.    Players on our 10U-14U teams must participate.  Those that do not wish to participate will pay up to $75 in Sports Fee payable to BBGC.

 

No player will be permitted to play down in an age group under any circumstances.   Players may be permitted to play up an age group with approval of the coach and the commissioner.   

 

 

6U Soft Tee-Ball

Ages:  4, 5 & 6

Birth dates:   2009, 2010, 2011

Games:  Bowie & Crofton

 

Safety is our number one concern.  We use an 11 inch Incrediball (this is a “softer” version of a regulation softball).  Teams are kept small, capped at around 8 players per team, guaranteeing each child 100% playing time, which minimizes any standing or sitting around.  Additionally, the players will get more individual coaching time, focused on learning the fundamentals.  Smaller teams will also allow players to receive several at bats per game – their favorite thing at this age!  Teams play a form of Cal Ball where the coach pitches a few times to the batter and if the player does not hit the ball, the ball is placed on a Tee.  We have found this to move the games along faster and much more exciting than T-ball.  This is softball at a higher success rate in terms of fun, skill development, and player retention.  Games are not scored. Each child will receive a medal at the end of the season.

8U Softball

 Ages:  7&8

Birth dates:  2007 and 2008

Games:   Bowie, Crofton, Gambrills, Edgewater

The 8U program builds on the 6U Program.   Teams are kept small, guaranteeing more playing time.   They are capped at about 10 players per team.   The focus is on basic fundamentals such as throwing, catching, batting, base running and pitching.   This is a kid pitch/Coach pitch League, where kid pitch is phased in over the course of the season with 2 innings maximum kid pitch.  There are no walks, no tees and players can strike out.     Games are not scored.   Each child will receive a medal at the end of the season.  

There will be an 8U All Star Tournament at Blacksox Park in June.    Volunteers are needed to help with this event.    Anyone interested in helping with the All Star Game should contact the commissioner
