Canton Rookie Spring Softball League

Playing Rules


The following rules are for the Canton Little League Softball Rookie Division. These were reviewed and agreed on by various members of the CLL board of directors. Our goal is to teach the rules of softball in order to form a strong base that can be built upon in future play.  The focus is not on winning at this level.  The focus is on developing softball skills and knowledge of the game as well as providing a positive experience in being part of a team.  Most importantly – HAVE FUN.

Rookie – 8U DIVISION


Regular Season Rules:

  1. 1x a week session will consist of skills training that will focus on fundamentals. 
  2. Teams will play one game per week on Saturday mornings where girls will have the opportunity to pitch. 
  3. Each team fields all rostered players: 4 infielders, a pitcher, and the remaining girls will play the outfield.
  4. All players play an equal amount of time in the infield and teams use a continuous batting line-up. 
  5. The season ends in mid June. As always, there is a focus on having fun while learning the fundamentals of the game.
