Kindergarten and 1st Grade:  Tee Ball ($175)

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

  All K and 1st graders are eligible to play.  Players are placed on mixed grade, though largely school-based teams.  T-ball is a wonderful introduction to the game and the League’s emphasis is on the FUN-damentals of the game:  hitting, throwing, catching and making new friends. T-ball teams meet twice a week for roughly 6-8 weeks, usually one weekday (on either Monday or Wednesday starting at 5:30 or 6 pm), and with a second game on Sat. afternoons (usually 1:30 or 3 pm).   Each practice/game is 1 hour.  The Season begins in late April and runs through mid-June.  

Every effort will be made to assign school-based teams but in some cases schools may be combined based on registration numbers.  Players with late registrations are not guaranteed placement on a school-based team.

​Early Bird Discount ends : December 31st

​Registrations AFTER March 1 will be placed to a Wait-List

 

2nd Grade and 3rd Grade:  Minors ($250)

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

  The Softball Minors division is a developmental, non-drafted, non-tournament league with a continued focus on fundamentals. Registered 2nd and 3rd graders are placed, to the best of the League’s ability, on largely school-based teams with 2nd and 3rd graders. The Minors’ season runs approximately 6-8 weeks with a division-wide end of year celebration.  Pre-season indoor clinics (for all Minors teams together) run for 3-4 weeks in late March and April. Teams play 2 games a week and have a Sunday practice.  Games are held on Tuesdays or Thursdays (with a 5:30 or 6:00pm start) during the week, and Saturday afternoons (with a 1:30 or 3:30 start).  (Typically teams will play one weekday game and one Saturday game but depending on number of teams and field availability, that may vary week to week.) Sunday practice times are set at the start of the season and practices are run for all Minors teams together in a clinic format.  Games run 5 innings or 2 hours—whichever comes first.  Pitching in this league is combined coach with some player-pitch opportunities each game.  All games are played on Lexington fields. The season begins in late April.

Every effort will be made to assign school-based teams but in some cases schools may be combined based on registration numbers.  Players with late registrations are not guaranteed placement on a school-based team.

6th Grade, 7th Grade and 8th Grade:  Seniors ($275)

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

  The Seniors division is LLL’s middle school, in-town league and is therefore designed to complement middle school schedules, minimize conflicts with other activities and maximize field/playing time for 6th-8th graders who love softball!  The Seniors schedule is comprised of 8-weeks of largely in-town play, with some inter-town (e.g. Bedford, Belmont, Arlington) games added where possible for additional competitive play.  Regular season games are played on Fridays and Sundays.  There is 1 practice per week per team.  The season culminates with a 1-2 week championship tournament in early to mid June.  League rules follow American Softball Association rules, consistent with middle school, summer, tournament and fall ball leagues.  Pre-season indoor team practices begin in March.  Game-play begins in late April.
