U10 Division Info


U10
 
FOR GIRLS AND BOYS 

Please see here for important information regarding team formation and league play.

Information on Grassroots League play (registration numbers permitting):

Sherwood Park Minor Softball has introduced the Parmalat Learn To Play Program for the U10 Age Division. The development of young softball players that are 8 to 10 years of age require the opportunity to practice skills necessary to successfully take part in the game of softball. The LTP program allows children of all skill levels to achieve the same number of skill repetitions. The practices also offer a high success rate for every child, which improves every player's self-confidence and love of the game.

The U10 Division will now incorporate practice/skill development sessions and games on the designated playing days. The U10 Division will have weekly games in the Sherwood Park House League and participate in the SPMSA Annual Tournament (registration numbers permitting see below).

Also available for the U10 Division is the Pitching Clinic beginning in February and the SPMSA U10 Skills Clinic in March and April (additional fees apply).

U10 Team Formation and League Play

Teams and league designation will be decided the following way:

The goal is to have 4 or more teams to form a local Grassroots House league, with all games in Sherwood Park.  In addition to these teams, based on parent feedback, there will also be one additional U10A team playing in the Edmonton Youth Softball Association.

 

SPMSA U10 Competitive Team

Sherwood Park Minor Softball will continue to be supporting a Competitive U10 team this season.  This team will compete in the Edmonton Youth Softball Association League and will also compete in tournaments, with the goal to compete in Provincials at the A level.   Please look for more information regarding evaluations and additional parent information in the new year.  There will also continue to be a house league in Sherwood Park if registration numbers permit.  See link above for policy on team formation and league play.   Camps and Clinics are open to all U10 players.
