Recreation softball

ZLL’s recreation softball program provides a fun and competitive atmosphere for girls to learn softball skills and advance their level of play. It consists of three divisions: a coach-pitch program for ages 6, 7, and 8; and a player-pitch program for ages 9 through 12. Each level operates under separate rules and objectives.
