Girls' Softball is a program geared toward obtaining player skill development through practice and league play for participants, not on a high school team, grades 1 - 9.  Fillies are grades 1st and 2nd, Pintos are grades 3rd and 4th, Palominos are grades 5th and 6th and Mustangs are grades 7th - 9th.   Playing rule modifications are based on National High School rules.  Fillies play Monday through Thursdays.  Pintos, Palominos and Mustangs play Mondays through Fridays.
Visual Skill Evaluation (V.S.E): is a time when the coaches have a chance to review players’ relative skill and athletic ability.  Each player will 1) bat (4 pitches) from a pitching machine 2) run the bases to 2nd base, 3) field two ground balls thrown by a coach,  4) catch a pop fly, 5) throw each of the ground balls and pop fly to a player at 1st base and 6) pitch 5 pitches to a stationary target.  The coaches will then draft players based on the information gained through the V.S.E.  Players need to complete a “VSE” only once while involved in each level of play (‘Pinto’, ‘Palomino’ and ‘Mustang’).  In the second year, a player is automatically placed on the same team as the previous year, unless a re-draft is requested.
