12U Slowpitch (5th and 6th Graders)
Commitment: 1 practice, 1 batting cage and 3 games each week (including one doubleheader).
Season: April through end of June
MGSA's in-house league for 5th and 6th graders is 12U Slowpitch.
In this league, there is more emphasis on advanced throwing, hitting and fielding skills, as well as learning appropriate reactions to various game situations.
The 12U Slow Pitch league plays games on Tuesday nights and Saturday afternoons at Legacy Fields at Minnetonka High School and Optimist Field in Glen Lake.
Players receive a jersey shirt. Players must provide their own batting helmet (with mask), fielding mask and softball mitt. Gym shoes are fine, plastic cleats are optional. Fielding masks for infielders are required beginning in 2019.
We also organize a competitive season-end tournament, which includes MGSA and Glen Lake teams. We also offer competitive travel options which play through the end of July.
