  1. Each player must wear a fielding mask to play in the field.

Please rotate the girls every few batters to allow all girls to play in the infield during the game portion of the session.

It is strongly suggested that each manager make an organized list/chart prepared before the game of fielding positions for each inning and batting order.

Two Coaches should be in the field instructing the players on what to do when the ball is hit to them.

We will not be playing outs but we encourage you the coaches to acknowledge an out and explain why to both the player and runner.


  1. All players will bat every inning. Please rotate the batting order each time they get up.
  2. Each girl will receive 5 swings. If they are unable to put the ball in play they will then hit off a tee. If the girl hits a foul ball on the 5th swing give them another chance to out the ball in play.
  3. Keep records and alternate the batting order from game to game. The same girls should not be batting in the lower half of the order on a consistent basis.
