Intermediate League

The LZBSA Intermediate FastPitch Softball League is designed for 5th and 6th grade girls, allowing them to develop the complete game of fastpitch softball in a recreational setting. 

 

Our development goals for players in this league are:

-       Exposure to expanded rules for softball, including live pitching, steals and bunts.

-       Developing awareness of  game situations

-       Developing personal self confidence

-       Having fun in a team environment!

 

Our teams at this level play in a combined league with teams from Barrington Youth Softball, playing a 12-15 game regular season schedule. The regular season is followed by a playoff to determine a league champion.  There is also an all-star game at this level.
