WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. -- Williamstown Cal Ripken Baseball and Softball is open to boys and girls ages 4 (before Sept. 1, 2019) through age 12 (as of April 30, 2019, for baseball or Dec. 31, 2019, for softball) who live in Northern Berkshire County and border towns in Vermont and New York.
The following divisions are available:
Grant Division: Ages 4 - 6 (Pre-K and Kindergarten)
The primary goal is to begin to instruct young players in the fundamentals of baseball and softball in a supportive team environment. Batters hit from a tee when needed, but also hit coach (or machine) pitched baseballs when possible. We place 4 year-olds in Learn-to-Play to provide the most age-appropriate learning.
Rookie Division: Ages 7 - 8 (1st and 2nd Grade)
For inexperienced players designed to teach fundamental skills and build confidence as players begin to learn game strategy in a supportive environment of team competition with coach and machine pitching.
Minor Division: Ages 8 - 10 (3rd and 4th Grade)
Designed to reinforce basic skills taught in Rookie League, build confidence as players and to further advance knowledge of game strategy in a supportive environment of team competition. This level will introduce players to pitching and emphasize a more competitive atmosphere. Designed for children with basic baseball skills.
Major Division: Ages 10 - 12 (5th and 6th Grade)
The most experienced level of Williamstown Cal Ripken Baseball. Players continue to build and refine skills while they apply game strategy in team competition with player pitching.
10U Softball: Ages 8 - 10 (Girls in 3rd and 4th Grade)
An introduction to softball skills and rules for girls, this level will introduce players to pitching and emphasize a more competitive atmosphere. Our 10U program builds on fundamentals learned in our Rookie and Grant Divisions but also works great as a beginner level.
12U Softball: Ages 10 - 12 (Girls 5th and 6th Grade)
Players continue to build and refine skills while they apply game strategy in team competition with player pitching. Girls are eligible for 12U Softball with a birthdate up to Dec. 31, 2006.
