About

About

Hudson Diamonds Fastpitch, serves Hudson, OH and the surrounding communities.  We welcome players from 6 through 18 years of all ability levels.  Participants do not need to be a resident of Hudson.  If a team roster fills, we may ask for volunteers to move to another team in the collaborating leagues to help fill their rosters.

Training session and games are held at the Hudson High School softball facilities (with a big THANK YOU!  to Hudson Schools for hosting us!)

Early Summer and Fall ball are our seasons, but thanks to the indoor facilities, we’re able to start training as early as January.

Registration for Spring ends in early February.  So register early!  Indoor practices start as soon as registration closes.

Registration for Fall ball opens in July shortly after the Spring season ends.

Leagues

There are two seasons, Spring League and Fall Ball.  Age eligibility for all leagues is based on the age of the player as of January 1st that year.   Players may “play up” based on ability, coaches’ recommendation, and need of the teams.

Spring Leagues

8u – For girls ages 6 through 8.  The 8u team only plays in the Spring Leagues as a part of the Stow YES Instructional League.  (Make sure your register through the Hudson Diamonds site rather than the Stow YES site to be placed on a Hudson team!)  It’s a great introduction to the game in a friendly, collaborative environment.  The season transitions from Coach pitch to Kid pitch.  Score is not kept, and play ends when an out is attempted, so there’s no clearing the bases on every hit.  Kids who have completed 2 seasons in 8u Spring league are eligible to play in 10u Fall Ball.

10u – Teams play at the appropriate level, with choices between the more recreational Stow YES League, and the more competitive  Western Reserve Fastpitch League.

12u – Teams play at the appropriate level, with choices between the more recreational Stow YES League, and the more competitive  Western Reserve Fastpitch League.

14u – These teams play in the more competitive Western Reserve Fastpitch League, upper or lower divisions.

18u – This team plays in the competitive Western Reserve Fastpitch League as well as Travelling to Regional Tournaments
