In House Slowpitch Softball K-5

** EAA Softball Board/Program Changes **

In response to registration trends and budget constraints, both Eagan Fastpitch as well as Eagan In-House Softball will be merged into one Eagan Fastpitch Softball Board with responsibility and governance over all age groups and softball programs. While the goal of this change is to improve our EAA softball program(s), we feel a streamlined board is necessary to administer our programs and to ensure Eagan Fastpitch Softball remains regarded as one of the premier sport programs of its kind in the state of Minnesota. With these structural changes will come some necessary modifications to our in-house/development programs.

 

 

Starting in 2013, Eagan Fastpitch Softball will continue to offer in-house softball for girls at three levels - grades K/1, 2/3 and 4/5. 

 

Grade Evening Cost
K/1 (t-ball / coach pitch) Mon/Wed $80
2/3 (coach pitch) Mon/Wed $85
4/5 (player pitch) Tues/Thur $110


 

2013 EAA Softball Development (In-House) Program

Similar to other EAA programs, Eagan Fastpitch Softball coaches will be provided information and training to assist in practice planning, skill instruction as well as integration of fun and competition into the player’s development. However, it is Eagan Fastpitch Softball’s desire to use the early ages to make an introduction into softball and a gradual transition to the fastpitch softball format.

 

As you can imagine, with these changes there remains a need for more parental involvement to make this new direction a success. Specifically, we are looking to add 2 or 3 additional board members to our Eagan Fastpitch Softball Board to help in planning, coordinating and delivering the 'new' development programs geared toward the younger ages. 

 

If you are interested in becoming involved and shaping the future of Eagan Fastpitch Softball or have questions/concerns, we invite you to contact one of us.

In House Softball Team Breakdown

Kindergarten/ 1st Grade
At K/1, the emphasis will be on learning the basics of softball – throwing, catching, hitting and fielding. Coach pitching will be the standard, but a tee will be available. We will decrease the number of games over historical levels, but increase the number of practices. Players must have their own glove.
 
Teams will play other Eagan teams at Eagan fields only. 
 
Season begins in early May and ends in mid-July.
 
2nd/ 3rd Grade
At 2/3, we will continue to use coach pitch as the standard. We will build in additional practice time. Players must have their own glove.
 
Teams will play other Eagan teams at Eagan fields only. 
 
Season begins in early May and ends in mid-July.
 
4th/ 5th Grade 
At 4/5, the game will complete its’ transition to a player pitch league. A tournament for all teams will be held at the end of the season. There will be about a 50/50 mix between games/practices and additional clinics with instruction made available. Players must have their own glove.
 
Eagan teams play in a local league against teams from surrounding communities (other 196 schools). This will not be an all-in travel league, as travel will be limited and only ONE weekend tournament will be played.
 
Season begins in early May and ends in mid-July.
