Filly League

The LZBSA Filly FastPitch Softball League is designed for 7th through 10th grade girls who wish to experience the complete game of fastpitch softball in a recreational setting. 

Our development goals for players in this league are:

  • Complete development of softball skills
  • Developing advanced in-game situational awareness 
  • Developing personal responsibility and confidence
  • Having fun in a team environment!

Our teams at this level play within the Northwest Suburban Fastpitch Softball League, playing a 12-15 game regular season schedule with teams from other nearby towns.  The regular season is followed by a playoff to determine a league champion.
