The minor division’s focus is on foundational skill building with an emphasis on teaching the proper mechanics of throwing, catching, fielding, hitting and baserunning. The foundation of softball pitching begins at this level with up to 5 pitches thrown to each batter by the player and coach pitch for pitches 6 and beyond. Team building, sportsmanship and keeping the game fun are all important components at this age level.
The schedule consists of 2 games per week on Mondays & Wednesdays and 1 practice, at EGHS fields for home games. The team travels locally in the district to play other towns. The district is comprised of teams from East Greenwich, North Kingstown, South Kingstown, Narraganset, and Jamestown.
