New girls softball league developed by Greenwich Parks & Rec.

Greenwich Recreation announces that registration is open for the newly-developed girls softball league. Softball will now be offered for ages seven through 14.

There will be a Junior Division for ages seven- and eight-year-old, as well as three Babe Ruth League Divisions for ages nine through 14.

Registration is currently underway and will last until Jan. 9, 2015 by mail only. In-person registration will begin on Monday, Jan. 12. Registration closes on Friday, Feb. 6 or when the program is filled.

The Junior Division is designed for beginners to teach the fundamentals of softball through practices and recreational games. The Junior Division will be a coach-pitch league, with special rules and equipment for the development of and welfare of the age group.

The Babe Ruth League will be offered for girls ages nine through 14 and will have three divisions: 10-U (nine- to 10-year-olds), 12-U (11- to 12-years-old), and 14-U (13- to 14-years-olds).

The emphasis on the local league season will include education, skill development and participation for all players. The Greenwich Babe Ruth teams will have recreational games with a competitive option for those that are interested. Some inter-league games may be scheduled with other local town Babe Ruth leagues.

The Junior Division starts April 4, with practice for several weeks followed by games from the last week in April until June 13. Games are mainly played on Saturdays, with some weeknights at various town fields. The Babe Ruth teams (ages nine to 14) will have the option to participate in an indoor pre-season clinic (separate registration available) followed by the start of the spring season around April 11.

All registration forms are available in the Recreation Office located at Town Hall and online at Greenwichct.org. Just click on Parks and Recreation and then youth programs under Recreation.
