Newtown Square Petticoat League
Providing Marple Newtown with a Girls Softball League for All Ages and Skill Levels
The purpose of the league is to give young girls an opportunity to learn to play softball in a fun and friendly environment. The score is not kept as we want the girls to thrive in a low-pressure environment. There are no playoffs and the emphasis is on player development and having fun, not winning.
In the Minors division the girls begin with parent-pitch. Hopefully, in the 2nd half of the season, a few girls will try their hand at pitching themselves. Score is kept to notch up the competitive level beyond T-Ball, but there are no playoffs in the Minors Division.
Majors, juniors and Intermediates play softball in a Competitive yet fun and supportive environment in our Rec league.
At the Minors level the girls pitch themselves. In the Juniors, limited stolen bases are allowed as well as sliding and bunting.As with all divisions, each player must play at least three innings in the field every game and the batting lineup is in running order whether the player has played in the field or not.
We form competitive teams beginning in 4th grade. Our teams tend to be very successful, often winning tournaments and usually placing in the top tier of rankings by age groups.
