We welcome adult volunteers to join our program. El Rio Fastpitch and USA Softball guidelines require all volunteers, managers, coaches, board members and team parents to be background checked, SafeSport and ACE certified. Girls of all skill levels are welcome to join. Experience is not required.
BlastBall is meant for children who are 4 years old or younger at the start of our spring season. Team size ranges from 6-8 kids per team. Some basic equipment is provided to the coach. Parent involvement is encouraged. Schedules are determined after registration and matched up with field availability. Typically, at this level we play games on Saturday and once during the week.
As this is an entry-level/ young division practices are typically held once a week, at the coach's discretion. The goal is fun and to start getting them ready for T-ball and Coach Pitch.
Uniforms and trophies are provided at this level.
