Cost for 8U is $150/player and you will be provided with a new uniform (jersey, belt and pants).  Players will need to provide gloves, USA softball bat and batting helmet. A fielding mask is highly recommended and encouraged but optional.

For youth fastpitch and slow pitch, the following applies.

  • 5U and 6U are eligible to play 6-Under.
  • 7U and 8U are eligible to play 8-Under.
  • 9U and 10U are eligible to play 10-Under.
  • 11U and 12U are eligible to play 12-Under.
  • 13U and 14U are eligible to play 14-Under.
  • 15U and 16U are eligible to play 16-Under.
  • 17U and 18U are eligible to play 18-Under.

For example, a 10U player who will move up and play 12U the next summer will play 12U fall ball.

A player’s age, as of September 1, 2023, determines the age at which the player is eligible to play the following year.  2023 Fall Ball is part of the 2024 season. 

Do not bother asking if your overaged player can play down in an age group. Players are able to play up but Big West does not allow playing down.
