Important Disclaimer:
Unless explicitly stated by a CBFO Softball committee member in a public announcement within the following methods (website, social media, email), the responsibility for player registration lies with the account holder. It is crucial to ensure that the registration is completed in accordance with the specified requirements during the registration process. Please note that incomplete registration orders cannot be honored to reserve a spot for a player. To be considered within the league capacity, account holders must successfully complete the entire registration process. In cases where leagues reach full player capacity, a player waitlist is available for interested individuals.

What equipment will my child need?

Players are encouraged to have a personal glove, helmet, and softball cleats. Players may additionally want a bat and equipment bag. As players outgrow their equipment they will often donate them to the league. We do have several used bats and gloves that are available.

What size ball do you use?

The 4-7 and 8-10 league use an 11″ ball. The 11-13 and 14-19 use a 12″ ball.

What can we expect regarding practice and game schedules?

Practices are one hour. Prior to the season’s beginning, practices are held one weekday evening and one weekend. Most teams reduce to one practice per week during the season; although, a coach can choose to continue both weekday and weekend practice.

Games are usually 1-2 per week on one weekday evening and one Saturday.

Games are not played on Sundays. Wednesdays are typically reserved for rain make-ups. Some teams practice on Sunday.

The 4-7 league has games during the week at 5:45 and on Saturday at 9:00, 10:15, 11:30, and 12:45.

What can I expect for a game day?

CBFO has a unique environment on game days!

Before each game, teams warm-up then load into their dugouts. Players and coaches line the field as the national anthem is played before each game.

A live announcer announces each batter throughout the game. Electronic scoreboards keep the crowd up to date on the score.

Our concession stands have all kinds of ballpark treats like nachos and candy, drinks of all kinds, and most importantly CBFO’s world-famous hot dogs.

Will my child get to play?

CBFO requires that all players are in the batting rotation and fielding roster. Older leagues may sit out one girl per inning on defense but must rotate each inning. A player can not sit out more than one 1/2 inning. We want girls of all skill levels to have fun and to learn to love the game of softball.

What type of pitching should we expect?

It depends on the league.


The 4-7 league is a combination coach pitch and tee-ball. Each girl gets 5 pitches from the coach. After that, we bring the tee out. As many swings as it takes.


The 8-10 league is a combination of girl fastpitch/coach pitch. We have found this is an excellent way to prepare batters and pitchers for the 11-13 league and beyond.

The girls get a chance for a full at-bat against the opposing pitcher – 3 strikes or 4 balls. After 4 balls, the coach comes in and gets a maximum of 3 pitches – pending foul balls. The amount of swings available to the player is determined by how many strikes they have when the coach comes in to pitch.

11-13 and up

All girls fastpitch!

Can I link my current Sports Connect account to the CBFO Sports Connect site?
