FAQs

What is "League Age"? Little League defines "League Age" as the age of a child as of January 1st of the year. In short, whatever age your daughter was on January 1st is her "League Age" for the entire year.
What is my weekly time commitment? Typically games or practices are played two times a week. Once during the week and on Saturday's. No games or practices are scheduled on Sunday's*. Games or practices are limited to two hours. T-ball games are limited to ninety minutes.

In the Spring Season games/practices typically start at 6 pm. Coaches may request the players to arrive 30 minutes before to get warmed up and receive position assignments. In the Fall Season games/practices start at 5:30 pm due to the decreased daylight hours to play. Again, coaches may request players to arrive 30 minutes before game time.

*The only exception will be if games are lost to weather and need to be rescheduled.
May I request a specific coach or team? Little League Player Selection rules strictly prohibit coach, team,or carpool requests. Therefore, PWCGSLL will no longer accept specific coach, team,or carpooling requests.
Where are games and practices held? Our base and main fields are at Tyler Elementary School in Gainesville, VA,where we have three fields. We also play games at Bristow Run Elementary School and Catharpin Park.
How many players are typically on a team? The following is a guideline:

-T-ball = maximum of eight players
-Rookie, Minors and Majors =maximum of twelve players

Depending on the number of girls that register there may be more players on a few teams.
Do you offer financial assistance? With today's tough financial climate, PWC Girls Softball Little League believes that every girl should be afforded the opportunity to play youth sports.

If you are in need of financial assistance please contact our President at [email protected] We will offer full or partial scholarships depending on your needs.
Are there volunteer opportunities? PWC Girls Softball LL is a 100%volunteer operation. There are a number of opportunities to help the league. We will always need head coaches, assistant coaches and team parents. We will need snack bar help on Saturday's. We will always need umpires. With the public schools requiring community service hours for graduation any high school senior that volunteers will receive hours credit toward that requirement.
What equipment is needed by a player? At a minimum each player must have their own softball glove and good running shoes. The league provides helmets, catcher's gear and a few bats to each coach. For a new player it is suggested to utilize the coach's equipment until the player is ready to make the investment in their own batting helmet, bat and cleats.

Note: there are Little League restrictions and regulations regarding player equipment. Please reach out to the BOD ([email protected]) for further information.
What is the Skills Assessment and who needs to attend? Skills Assessment Policy

The Skills Assessment is required for all players registered for the DRAFT divisions (Minors and up). Each player will participate in a series of Skill Stations (for example, ground ball and pop fly fielding, batting, running, pitching, etc.) in order for the coaches to evaluate each player’s potential. The coaches will then use their evaluations to assist with their player selections.

If a player is does not attend the Skills Assessment and have not submitted a medical reason prior to the draft, the player’s name will be randomly drawn for team placement.
What is the Draft? The Draft is attended by the coaches only. Based on the player evaluations from the Skills Assessment and Little League Division Guidelines each Coach will draft their team. There are rules to the draft to keep the teams balanced and fair. Also, just because a player attended the Skills Assessment does not guarantee that they will be drafted. Any players not drafted will be placed on a Rookie team. After the Draft there is a 3 day period to allow for trades and corrections to team assignments before the Coaches can notify the players of their selection.
Player Pool Players interested in participating in extra games to aid other teams in the same division who may be short players for an upcoming game. The Player Agent will administer pool players and confirm their availability. Coaches may NOT request or recruit pool players. The administration of pool players will be on a rotating basis.
Refunds? Registration fees are non-refundable.
When will the practice/game schedule be available for the season?The schedule will not be set until after registration has closed, skills assessment and the draft has been completed. Once the schedule is set and approved by the BOD, it will be released to the Coaches for distribution to the players. 
If you live outside of League boundaries, can you still play in the League?  Yes, the BOD will need to have a waiver filled out and submitted to Little League for approval.
