In House Softball Team Descriptions

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.

Cedar Alternative Center 
2140 Diffley Rd  
Eagan, MN 55122

Nights of Play - Mon/Wed

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.

News: 4th & 5th Graders (effective 2017)

  • 5th Grade players can sign up for either the In House Slow Pitch 5-12 program or for Travel Fastpitch.
  • 4th Grade players can sign up for either 10U League Only or for Travel Fastpitch.  Both are travel program options with some differences in time commitments. Please see our "About Travel" page for more details.
  • There is NO In House option for 4th Grade.
Due to limited enrollment in 2016 and our neighboring
cities no longer hosting 4/5 grade teams, the In House
4/5 grade program will not be offered starting in 2018. 

Any player can sign up for our Traveling Fastpitch program. The age group is based on the player's age December 31, 2018.

Fall Ball

Our Fall Ball program is a great introduction to Traveling Fastpitch with a shortened 6-7 week season.  

  • Fall Ball registration opens in July.  
  • This is a short season: mid-August to end of Sept.
  • A casual, learning environment to improve player skills and knowledge while having fun.

To learn more, please visit our "Fall Ball" page.

If you still have questions, please reach out to the Community Teams Director or the In House Coordinator via email.  


Here are some examples of how a player could move through the Eagan Fastpitch Softball programs. You do not have to play years of In House Softball before joining the travel program.  Additionally, a player with birth year 2008 and later can sign up with the 8U travel program without having played In House.
