Equipment Recommendations

Hi Everyone!

I mentioned during open registration that we will provide a list of what we recommend each player has. Please see below

  • Practice Pants - 2 is recommended because the girls will be learning to slide.
    • You can get these for about $10 at Dicks, or if you search for "softball pants" on Amazon and choose what you would like. We recommend not paying too much for these.
  • Socks - up to you for practice. Depending on the cleats you have, make sure the socks are above the cleat so your kid doesn't get blisters.
    • Socks for uniforms will be provided.
  • Glove - I would recommend going to Dicks or another sporting goods store and have your kid try them on. If it is your kids first year playing buy something cheap at Walmart, etc..
  • Helmet - I would recommend finding something on Amazon or a sale somewhere. The helmets can be a bit costly, around $50-$60. We have a few, but not enough. If you are interested in donating helmets please contact us. We would need 5 per team.
    • IMPORTANT: Your kids helmet must also have a Facemask attached to it. 
    • This may be an item you try on in the store and then look online for cheaper deals. All brands fit a bit different. I only mention this, because again, this is the most expensive item out of everything.
    • T-Ball: I am double checking, but I don't believe you need a helmet
  • Cleats - You should be able to get a pair at Dicks or Big 5 Sporting Goods. We have shopped their before. Any other sporting good store should have youth cleats as well. Color of the Cleats do not matter.
    • T-Ball: Its up to you as a parent. We just have had our kids wear closed toe shoes.
  • Bat - Although not required, it is a good idea to get one. We have bought our kids a $20-$25 bat at Walmart. I know Dicks and other places will have them, but they may be more expensive. You just need a Youth Softball Bat. Depending on the division you are in, will depend on the bat size. They usually have a chart at the store to determine the size. 


  • Shirt/Jersey will be supplied
  • Socks will be supplied
  • Pants will not be supplied. We will make a decision so its easy as a league for us. Again, we may just choose one color for the entire league. We want to keep cost down for the parents and the league.
