12U Division

This division is oriented to eleven and twelve old girls who are interested in recreational softball, team participation, spirit, and having lots of fun!!! Most home games are played at Stagecoach Park. Some travel games will be scheduled with other local softball leagues.

12U Division age is determined by the age of the child as of August 31st for Spring Season.

Spring Season:

  • Practice begins the end of January with a weekday and Saturday practice per week.
  • Games begin on Opening day which is the last Saturday of February and continue through end of April. Each team will practice on one weekday and one game on Saturday.  Times and weekdays will vary.
  • Practices and games will be played at Stagecoach Community Park and La Costa Heights Elementary.
  • Spring Season is concluded by two weeks of playoff games culminating with our Championship Games on the last Saturday of April.

Forming Teams:

Evaluation Day traditionally occurs the first Saturday in January.

The girls will be assessed on their hitting, fielding, base running, and pitching (if applicable.) This evaluation helps ensure evenly skilled teams that are equally competitive.  Team parity is our goal and can only be achieved if we have 100% attendance on evaluation day.

Pitching evaluations will be held at the conclusion of position evaluations for ALL possible pitchers. Any player who plans to pitch more than 5 innings during the season MUST be evaluated on evaluation day so that teams can be created with an equal amount of pitching on each.

After evaluations are completed a draft will be held & players will be placed on team rosters. Parents will be contacted by their respective coach.

Please bring your glove, bat and helmet (helmets must have a face mask); softball or soccer cleats are recommended. Long hair is recommended to be tied back and softball pants or athletic clothing worn. Bats and helmets will be available to borrow during evaluations.

LCYO looks forward to helping your daughter learn and enjoy the great game of softball. LCYO has become a nationally known softball organization.

Please contact the 12U Division Director if you have any additional questions.
