~maintain our Facebook page
~assist with field maintenance
~prepare equipment
~distribute uniforms
~assist with special events like Opening Day & Blue & Gold Day

The time commitment would only be a few hours each season.

Equipment Your Player Needs

Recommended Softball Equipment for Each Player:
~Softball Glove~
~Fielding Mask~highly encouraged for 10U and above, welcome at 8U
~Softball Cleats~
~Softball Bat~
~Softball Helmet~we have some to loan for the season if desired

Uniform:  EBYA provides a uniform jersey and visor.  Softball pants and socks are not included.  Black pants are preferred but any color is acceptable.  10U and above should wear softball pants in lieu of shorts or leggings because they can steal and slide!

Please bring water to all practices and games.

FAQ:  Unsure of the proper size glove or bat for your daughter?  Reach out and we are happy to help offer assistance.  

Gloves:  We recommend 11" gloves for most girls in the 10U and 12U divisions.  Anything over 8U should have a larger, leather glove. The more broken in the better because the girls' hands are still smaller and developing.
Bats:  Bat length is recommended based on the height (and associated arm length) of the player.  Most 8U ladies will use 26-28".  10U players usually go with 28 or 29".  Bat weights are associated with the length, so choose the correct length.
Softballs:  We use 11" softballs for 8U and 10U.  12U moves to 12"
