8U Information

2021 Summer 8U registration opens January 15th and closes March 6th. This is a great introduction to fast pitch softball where girls will learn the correct techniques for fielding, batting, and hitting. Fastpitch is how softball is played in high school and collegiate levels. CA Heat is the primary feeder program for Cooper and Armstrong fastpitch programs. 

8U: Birth Years 2012 or 2013 I I Machine Pitch I Cost is $75.00

Included in the cost are: 

  • Full uniform: jersey, pants, socks, and belt
  • Practices, weekly league games, one coach selected tournament and end of year state tournament
  • Team gear

Games and practices:

Games will be played on Wednesdays starting in May 6 and each team plays on 9 dates concluding early July. The league tries very hard to keep the games within the Northwest suburbs but longer travel may be needed on occasion. At the 8u level all games are machine pitch. The 8u State Tournament is held July 10-11.

Practices will be held at one of the local parks and are usually 1-2 days per week. CA Heat will provide additional development clinics during the season. This is a fun and affordable way to introduce your daughter to the sport of Fastpitch Softball

CA Heat is a non-profit volunteer based organization. As such, we rely on parent volunteers to fill head coaching, assistants and parent helpers. Training is provided to those interested and are ability to field teams depends on parent volunteers. 


Fundraising is essential for our organization as it helps offset the cost of our operating expenses. Without fundraising, we would have to significantly raise the price for each player to play. A $50 fundraising commitment check will be collected from each player and will be returned to you when the player fulfills the minimum fundraising requirement each season of play.
