East Grand Forks Parks & Recreation

12U softball

The 12U level is the beginning of fastpitch play.   Players will pitch to and face live pitchers in games.  The 12U level is for girls from 11 & 12 years old with birthdays between May 1, 2011 and April 30, 2013.

This age group continues to focus on the development of key playing skills of softball to include throwing, catching, hitting, fielding and base running and introduces pitching with the proper mechanics and hitting against live pitching.  More in-depth team and positional strategies are learned while gaining a knowledge of the fastpitch game.


The 12U teams play in the Northwest Minnesota League which includes teams from Warroad, Roseau, Lake of the Woods, Greenbush, Thief River Falls, Red Lake Falls and Crookston.  Currently the 12U league will play double-header games on Tuesday evenings.  We will have both home and away games.  Parents will be responsible for getting players to out-of-town games.  We will also try to schedule a few games against area teams.  We will form teams based on the number of players registered and number of volunteer parent coaches.   

We are looking for parent volunteers to coach.  If interested, please call the Parks & Recreation Office, 218-773-8000, prior to registering to get setup as a coach.

Girls 12U softball will run three or four days per week, Mon-Thur.  Most practice times will be 5:30pm - 7:00pm at LaFave Park (Sacred Heart Fields).  Schedules for the entire summer will be posted prior to the first week of practice.
