League Overview

The Season

  • The softball season starts with weekly practices in May and weekly games starting the first week in June, running through the end of July. 

  • Games are typically scheduled on Wednesday & Friday evenings after 5pm and are held at the Lake Bluff softball fields or the Shorewood High School softball field.

  • Practices starting in May are held indoors at either the Shorewood Intermediate School Gym or the Shorewood High School Arena or North Gym transitioning to outdoor practices as weather permits.

  • Outdoor practices are held at the Lake Bluff softball fields and are typically scheduled on Monday or Tuesday evenings per the coaches discretion.

 

Rostering

  • Teams are rostered by the Board with input from the previous year’s coaches.

  • We consider multiple factors: preferred practice night, grade level, friend request, skill level and planned absences.

  • Senior League includes rostering teams with an even number of known pitchers.

  • We aim to create balanced teams, at least on paper.

  • No roster changes will be made after posting.

 

Uniforms & Equipment

  • SGSL supplies the team socks, visors and t-shirt.  The league also supplies quality bats, batting helmets with face guards and catcher’s equipment. 

  • Players need to bring their own softball glove and are responsible for supplying their own solid black softball pants to complete their uniform. 

  • No shorts are allowed due to sliding.

  • Shoes can be cleats (not metal) or tennis shoes.

  • The Junior League uses an 11” ball while the Senior League uses a 12” ball.
