GIRLS SOFTBALL

2022 Girls Fall House Softball

The softball program is designed to appeal to a wide range of softball abilities, from introducing the game to novices with no prior experience, to challenging more experienced players. Girls that participated in the spring league will be placed on those same teams for the fall season unless otherwise requested. Any new players will be placed on an existing team or a new team will be formed if enough new participants join. Bartlett is part of the MRF league with Carol Stream, Streamwood, Bloomingdale, Roselle and Glendale Heights. Age levels will coincide with ASA age regulations. Each player will receive a professional jersey and matching socks (included in the registration fee).  Due to the size and nature of the program, we do not accept carpool or friendship requests nor can we guarantee coach requests. The Fall season includes an 8 game season for each division.

Click here to be re-directed to the Athletics homepage which includes schedules and season specific information.

SOCCER LEAGUE (FALL & SPRING)

Those registered by the deadline are guaranteed to play. Registrations received after the registration deadline will be placed on a waitlist and are not guaranteed placement on a team. Placement will only be done when an opening occurs. No players will be added to teams once games have begun. Due to the size and nature of the program, we cannot accept coach, player, friendship, or carpool requests. Please do not list these on the registration form.

The spring league provides an excellent opportunity for children of all ages and abilities (no experience necessary!) to stay fit, improve their motor skills, learn teamwork and have a great time. Grade-based teams ensure that players make new friends and play with their peers at all skill levels. The league is structured to limit roster size, maximize playing time on the field, and increase player development.

Many coaches are needed to make this a great league. Please consider volunteering as a coach. We provide equipment, training, and resources. Complete the bold section on the registration form, and be sure to provide an email address. If not enough coaches volunteer, the league is forced to have large teams, reducing playing time or limiting the number of teams within the league.

Required Equipment: Shinguards, water bottle, soccer cleats (not required for Kindy)

Soccer Ball Sizes: K, 1st & 2nd Grade – Size 3           3rd-6th – Size 4             7th -8th – Size 5
