Junior Fastpitch 13-17
Fastpitch is typically played in club and association competitions and is the traditional basis for elite state, national, and international championships and events. To find your nearest fastpitch competition contact Softball NT.
Currently, Softball NT clubs accept juniors from 14 years and older to play in Senior competitions. Kids under 14 may be considered for dispensation with strict guidelines under the provision that consideration is taken into account for the position they play and safety equipment they will be required to use. Dispensations must be sought through your Club and League with Softball NT signing off on any junior dispensations.
A number of junior carnivals are run annually around the country, providing excellent competition opportunities for up-and-coming junior softball players.
