Region H Softball Teams and Skills

What Is Team Softball and Softball Skills?

Slow pitch softball involves teams of 10 athletes each. Individuals who wish to play softball but do not have a team can participate in individual skills competition to develop basic softball skills.

As in all Special Olympics sports, athletes are grouped into competition divisions according to ability level, age, and gender when appropriate.

Teams or individuals in Illinois who participate in softball compete locally at region qualifying events. Gold medal winners are eligible to advance to State Softball held in Springfield in September.
