Overview

The In-House program serves girls age 6-9 (Kindergarten through 3rd grade) with a Summer season running from late April through June. Teams generally play two games per week. At the youngest ages, coaches pitch. At the 2nd-3rd grade level the program transitions to machine-pitch. The In-house program is focused on both fun and skill development. Girls play at their current grade level as of the start of the season. Teams are formed, when possible, by placing girls with other players from their school or neighborhood.

FAQs

Please find answers to these Frequently Asked Questions about Inhouse softball below:

What is the style of play?
The EVAA In-House program stresses skills that the girls will need to be successful in fastpitch softball.

Are there separate divisions?
Yes, the kindergarten and 1st graders are grouped together and play under one set of age appropriate rules. Similarly, the 2nd and 3rd graders are grouped together.

Are there tryouts?
No, there are no tryouts for In-House softball - all that is required is a desire to play and have fun!

How are teams selected?
We try to create teams based upon parent requests and the schools the girls attend. In addition, we try to make sure that each team has the same number of younger and older players.

How many girls are on a team?
We try to limit the number of girls on a team to 12 so they all can stay involved. At the kindergarten and 1st grade level we may put as few as 7 on a team to keep them active.

When is the season?
The Inhouse season runs from early May until late June. Typically the first two weeks of the season are just practices and after that the season begins. We try and have everything wrapped up by the 4th of July every year.

How many games are played each week?
Schedules usually have two games each week.

Where will games be played?
The field assignments will be made by the City of Apple Valley in April. The K/1 and 2/3 grade teams play all of their games in Apple Valley at the fields of Scott Highlands. 

Does EVAA provide a uniform?
A t-shirt is provided for each girl in the program. These items usually arrive by the first game in mid-May.

What about pictures?
Each year EVAA coordinates with a company to come and take team pictures. Details of the time and place will be distributed by the coach when they become available. Purchasing pictures is optional but all are encouraged to attend for the team photo.
 
Are there any participation awards?
In the past, each girl that plays in the In-House program has received a small trophy at the end of the year.

What equipment does EVAA provide?
EVAA provides basic equipment for the team: bats, balls, catcher’s gear, etc.

What equipment will have to be purchased?
Each player will need to provide their own glove and batting helmet. The batting helmet needs to have a chin strap but does not need a face mask. Players can wear rubber cleats.
