This page is to help you determine where your child best fits based on her age & skill level.
Your daughter's softball age and the division will be determined by their age on January 1st of the season (Fall or Spring) in which they are playing.
Below is a list of our PONY softball divisions:
SHETLAND SOFTBALL for girls ages 4-6:
Similar to T-Ball baseball, players will hit using a batting tee and use an 11" softball.
PINTO SOFTBALL for girls ages 7-8:
Coach Pitch, players will still use an 11" softball. Players will hit by a pitch thrown by a Coach.
MUSTANG SOFTBALL for girls ages 9-10:
11" softball is still in use except this is the first year where an opposing player will pitch the ball. Pitching distance is 35' (feet).
BRONCO SOFTBALL for girls ages 11-12:
Player pitch softball still, except they now graduate to the 12" softball. Pitching distance is 40' (feet).
PONY SOFTBALL for girls ages 13-14:
Not much different from Bronco play, most players are now getting ready for high school play or already playing at the high school level. Pitching distance is 43' (feet).
