The basic unit of organization for RCGSL is the Division. Divisions are comprised of Rookies, Juniors, Minors, Majors and Seniors and are designated by the player's current age.
TEE BALL and COACH PITCHED division, which introduces softball to young girls whose skills and coordination are just developing. Players are taught basic fundamentals: how to throw the ball, field a grounder, swing the bat, and which way to run around the bases. Practice and games every Saturday. 7 year olds who have played before should sign up for the Juniors division instead.
