Equipment Information

Softball Gear List

  • Softball Glove (required) 

A 10" glove will last most girls until they are 7. At 8 years old, depending on their size, you may want to switch to an 11"/11.5" glove.
Once they move to U10, they will definitely need one that large. You want your daughter to have as much control over the glove as possible.

  • Softball Bat (required)

25 inches is a good size bat for 5 year olds, 27" for 7-8 year olds, but obviously the girls are all different sizes, and an inch or two either way isn't going to be an issue. It's just important that they can control their bat.
The “Fastpitch Bat Sizing Chart” guide may be helpful:

  • Baseball or Softball Batting Helmet with attached cage (face guard) (required)
  • Fielder's Mask (U6: optional, U8: recommended, U10 and above: required)
  • Cleats (strongly recommended. Any rubber/non-metal cleats. Soccer cleats are fine, but softball cleats are not ok for soccer.)
  • Water bottle (required)

Other common equipment:

 - Batting Gloves
Softball Bag / Backpack
 - Softball Sliding Shorts / Pads
