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.
