Softball General Information

Our home field is:

Douglass Township Berks  Complex 
1068 Douglass Drive 
Boyertown, PA 19512

 

practices and games

Most practices and games will be played at this location.  There will be other practices held at an alternate location based on teams. Your coaches will give you that info when the practice schedule is announced.   A general rule of thumb is that at least half of our games are home games.  

Practices will be 2 nights a week and Saturdays, until games start then 1 or 2 of the practices will be replaced with games.  Your team will be assigned nights and that will stay consistent throughout the season.  We do not rotate the schedules.  We feel that it is much easier to know that you will have softball on Say Mon, Wed and Saturday when planning the rest of your life. We are currently in the process of planning practice nights and will let everyone know as soon as possible and you will receive an email from your coaches for info on the start of practices as soon as possible . 

The League

We play in the Berks County girls softball league! Most games are located within 30-40 minutes of our home field. There are a few fields that are a little further out.  When scheduling we try to schedule accordingly with start times and even try to book those teams as home games whenever possible.  

Uniform and Equipment

Pine forge will supply your daughter with a team jersey, and the team will order socks as a team.  (usually under $10.00), you will need to supply black softball pants, a glove and a protective fielder's face mask.  The teams will have bats and helmets to be shared.  They are welcome to use their own as long as the bat is stamped with the USSSA stamp and the helmet will need to have the face mask attached and a chin strap.  Cleats are recommended but not required. 

8U through 12U

Games will begin for the week of  4/11 and run through the week of 6/1.  We will have game schedules about 3/26 for 8U -12U. 

14 & 18U

Please be advised your season does not begin until June 8th.  Therefore practices will not begin until sometime in May to allow for the school seasons to finish.
