Rookie Softball is an instructional program for girls in grades K and 1. No previous experience with softball or baseball is necessary and in fact the Rookie Softball program introduces many young players, to playing softball.
Our mission is to introduce Wayland girls to softball in a fun and engaging program while focusing on a progression of skill development, which is why our program was developed through a collaboration between WLL and Frozen Ropes, the Metrowest’s preeminent organization specializing in youth softball and softball skill development.
The program incorporates a combination of fast paced and fun drills using varied stations.
Drills are lead by professional Frozen Ropes instructors with assistance from parent coaches and volunteers from Middle and High School Programs. In addition to the drills, we will play controlled scrimmages to allow the girls to apply these skills in a game situation. The girls will work in small groups organized by experience level and enjoy an engaging and rapidly changing environment.
Rookie Softball is be organized as so to avoid any conflicts with other sporting activities. For instance we understand that many players who play in this league also play Spring soccer.
Please note: Parents volunteers are needed to run this program. Please consider signing up as a volunteer - no experience is necessary and instruction will be provided.
- Practices will run from April (after spring break) through June.
- Games and practices take place at Wayland Middle School.
- Practices times are on Tuesdays & Wednesdays from 5:30pm - 7:00pm
- They may be optional indoor clinics at Town Building.
