Announcing the New 6u Age Division!

Humboldt Fastpitch is excited to announce
Registration for the

Six and Under Age Division

Program Details:  Six and under is suited for youth ages 4 to 6 years old and will consist of approximately 5 players per team to play infield positions only.  Teams will hit through their line up off a T while the team on offense attempts to make the plays.  Once a team makes it through the line up, teams will switch.  Game time will last approximately 45 minutes.  

The 6 and under is intended to provide an introductory level of the game with emphasis on player development and FUN!  Low team numbers means more touches on the ball for your young player which equates to game exposure, skill development, and action!  The 6 and under (6u) is intended to prepare players for the next level, 8 and under.  Eight and under no longer uses the T but transitions to "coach pitch" in preparation for "player pitch" at the 10u level.

If you have any questions related to this new program, please let us know!  Thanks!

Register Online for the 2016 Humboldt Fastpitch Recreational Softball Season!

We are pleased to open registration for the 2016 Season of Humboldt Fastpitch, the Recreation Division of Mad River Girls Fastpitch Softball!  Registration will remain open until March 1, 2016 after which late registration will commence. Registration after the deadline will be subject to availability and a $20 late registration fee. However, players are asked to register early through the online system as it will help our all-volunteer staff to organize and schedule the 2016 Season. Note that late registration will close on March 18, 2016, after which parents must contact Regional Rec Program Representatives or the Board of Directors to be added to a wait list, and will be notified and allowed to register late if space is available.

DETAILS FOR THE RECREATION DIVISION SOFTBALL SKILLS ASSESSMENT are currently being set... please stay tuned for more information. 

We still have several missing uniforms from the 2015 softball season.  The return of the uniform would be greatly appreciated for inventory and ordering purposes in preparation for the 2016 season. Traci Niles is our uniform coordinator and works for Umpqua Bank.  She has made arrangements so that uniforms can be dropped off at any Umpqua Bank in your local community and it will get to her! Thank you Traci!

ATTN 8U Families

It is with sincere apologies that we send you this revised 8 and under schedule.  Late last night Redwood Fastpitch notified us that two more of their teams have dropped out of the 8 and under event.  We tried once again to be the least bit disruptive to the schedule.  Please note the changes in the 8 and under schedule for Saturday.  Thank you for your patience in regards to this matter.  We look forward to a great day of softball this weekend.

Finale Tournament Info

As quickly as it seems the season started, will soon come to an end.  June 5-7 marks the Finale Tournament and the end of our RECREATIONAL softball season.  We truly hope your family has enjoyed their playing experience with us and look forward to planning out the 2016 softball season.  If any of you have positive thoughts, constructive criticisms, or anything else you would like us to know as we plan for 2016, we would appreciate hearing them!  We are also always looking for volunteers in search of making a positive contribution to our community, the sport of softball, and Humboldt Fastpitch.  If you fall into that category, please let us know!  We can ALWAYS use the help!

Please remember that even though this tournament is designed to be competitive, this is a YOUTH Sports Event and that players, coaches, and volunteers are doing their best.  Remember that in the end, this is JUST A GAME and the true value of the experience for your daughter will not be measured in the win/loss column!  Please create a positive, fun, and supportive tournament environment for all involved.  We appreciate your support!  Thank you!

 At the conclusion of your player's tournament, it is IMPERATIVE we get her uniform!  Consequently, at each tournament location, we will have a uniform and equipment table check-in.
