**Playing age for Spring 2023 Recreational Softball is based on age of player as of 1.1.2023 for 8U-13/18U. (The age of your daughter as of January 1, 2023, will determine what division she will play in during the Spring league)

AJAA SPRING REC SOFTBALL SEASON
Teams will have 90-minute practices twice weekly for the first two weeks and then once weekly once games begin. Practice days and times will be determined once players are rostered to teams, but practices are generally scheduled on weeknights from either 5:30pm-7:00pm or 7:00pm - 8:30pm. We try to schedule the younger leagues in the earlier time slots when possible.

Each team will play two 70-minute games per week (weather permitting). 10U, 12U, and 13-18U games are played Monday through Thursday evenings. 8U games are “double headers” played on Saturday mornings and early afternoons (scheduled back-to-back whenever possible). We are still working to determine what days we will play 6U games.

All practices are held at our fields located at 866 S. CR 625 E. in Avon; however, game locations can alternate with our community partners.

EVALUATIONS
Sunday March 12, 2023 | Location: Avon High School Fieldhouse | 10:00am - 1:30pm*
*Evaluations are held for 8U through 18U. The 6U Division does not have evaluations.*

Evaluations are an important part of the team rostering process! Evaluation scores are used to help ensure that fair and equal teams are formed in the coach’s draft process. On evaluation day, a group of coaches will bring your player through a series of hitting, pitching, catching, and throwing exercises. Your player will be assigned a confidential score in each category and those scores will be used during the drafts to help ensure a variety of talent is placed on each team.

Teams will be rostered, at which time parents will be able to see their player's team in the Game Changer app. on your smartphone.

DRAFTS
All teams will be formed using a snake draft based on evaluation scores. Head Coaches are permitted to pick two Assistant Coaches prior to the draft. All coaches will have their own daughters and their Assistant Coach’s daughters on their team. After those players are set, a snake draft will occur based on evaluation scores.

HEAD COACHES & ASSISTANT COACHES NEEDED
AJAA is always in need of Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches.  If you would like to coach, please be sure to also register as a volunteer when registering your child in your AJAA account. Background Check required.
