Lake Country Youth Baseball and Softball (LCYBS) offers recreational softball leagues for players in first through ninth grade. As there is no residency rule, the recreational leagues are open to everyone in the Greater Lake Country area. The program emphasizes fundamental skill development, sportsmanship, teamwork, and having fun. This program is successful because of the many volunteers in our great community - and the hundreds of kids each year who suit up and take the field for a great summer of softball. The level of play and competitiveness generally increases with each age group.
In order to be prepared and get the most out of the season, the player should bring a correctly sized glove (preferably broken in).
Other equipment is not required but recommended-
Batting Helmet with facemask
Correct size and weight softball bat
Cleats, especially 3/4 grade and up
Looking for a more advanced level of play?
In addition to the recreational baseball leagues, LCYBS also offers a select-level softball program called the Hartland Lady Hawks. This tryout-based program is for the more advanced players and requires significant commitment beyond that at the recreational league level.
