Soft Ball

Soft Ball is an awesome sport giving players the opportunity to build confidence and have fun while being part of a team. It also provides players the chance to shine individually while at the same time encourage and celebrate their teammates - all while having loads of fun!  There is cheering, singing and dancing all while playing a sport that builds confidence and friendships.

What is Soft Ball? While similar to baseball, soft ball has  the ‘windmill’ style pitches and the players use a larger, yellow ball.

Each player will get a Crushers cap to keep and a jersey to wear (to be returned at end of season). They will require a glove, a batting helmet, a protective cup/jill, running shoes (or molded baseball cleats). Catchers gear and bats are provided.

Uniforms are necessary and each player will need to have their own (which can be purchased through our online store):

  • white baseball pants
  • navy socks
  • navy belt
