The fall clinic series is for players in kindergarten through 6th grade. Sessions will be run by professional instructors and volunteer coaches on our primary fields at Foothill Elementary. Players will participate in two sessions per week with one Sunday session focused on fundamentals and skill development and a weekday session focused on game situations including scrimmages. The series runs from September 10 through October 22 with a break on October 8.
Note that our league hosts the annual Alexis Briski Memorial Tournament on Oct 7-8 and the fall clinic session participants are highly encouraged to watch the games and participate in the tournament organization to make the event a success.

Divisions of Play
A Grades PreK, K, 1st
This division is designed to teach girls the basic fundamentals of softball. Scores are not kept. All girls will bat off their own team's pitcher (coach or manager). After 3 pitches, the girls will bat off the "T". Everyone bats and plays the field in each inning so that girls can develop good sportsmanship and team spirit. This division is for girls to have fun while getting a chance to play the game. Players will be placed on teams based on friend requests and school.
AA Grades 2nd/3rd
This division is to help the girls learn and improve their softball skills. Batters will have a chance to hit from a player pitcher in addition to coach pitching. Players will be placed on teams based on friend requests and school.
This division introduces the girls to regulation softball. There is a combination of player and coach pitching, stealing of bases is allowed (one at a time) but dropped third strike and infield fly are not used. Players will be assigned to teams through tryouts and a draft. Friend requests are considered, but competitive balance takes priority.
AAAA Grades 6th/7th/8th (Middle School)
At this level of play, the division follows most ASA championship guidelines. LGCS allows all players batting in the line-up and has an open defensive substitution policy. Players will be assigned to teams through tryouts and a draft. Friend requests are considered, but competitive balance takes priority.
