8U Program – the 8U program focuses on teaching the fundamentals and ensuring girls gain confidence in their softball abilities.

  • Rules designed to promote a safe development environment
  • Pitching machine for consistent hitting experience
  • Regulation softball that doesn’t bounce up and hit fielders
  • No extra bases on overthrows

 

League Teams – In addition to our Travel Teams, CAA Fastpitch also offers League Teams.  League Teams will participate in the Big West Leauge at a "C" level (except 8U) and is offered at the following levels:

12U - athletes born in 2006 and 2007

10U - athletes born in 2008 and 2009

Weekend / Tournaments - League Teams WILL NOT be required to play in weekend tournaments.  However, there are several tournament opportunities available including a year-end tournament that will provide an opportunity to play against a wide variety of teams from across the metro area.  If a League team decides to participate in a weekend tournament, CAA will assist with the registration, but the cost will need to be covered by the families on that team (approximately $30-$40 per family; which typically guarantees 4 games.)

Season Dates - the season dates for league teams will be April – mid-July.  Big West League games typically start in early May and will conclude in late June.  There will be an opportunity to play in a State Qualifier and State Tournament (weekend tournaments) IF the league team decides they want to play.

 

Cost – the cost of League teams will need to cover the expense of the teams’ participation in the Big West League as well as the cost of play (fields, equipment, insurance, etc.) but it will be lower than a Travel player due to fewer tournaments.

K / 1 / 2 - In-House Program - Athletes born in 2010 (2nd grade) and later may also choose to participate in our K / 1 / 2 In-House program.  This program is a coach pitch program to teach fundamentals of the game and build confidence.  Teams will participate in league games against teams from Chaska and Carver.

Hosted tournaments are a huge success!!

The CAA Storm softball hosted two MMFL State tournaments (12U & 16U) at the Chanhassen Lake Ann Park.  Thanks to the many volunteers who helped to make the events a huge success and an outstanding fund raiser for our program.
