If there are enough players to form more than one team, teams  will be formed following player evaluations. Spring practices begin in late February with the Spring season ending tournament finishing in mid-May. Fall practices begin mid-August with the Fall season ending tournament finishing in early November. 8U & 10U weekday games begin at 6pm, usually finishing by 7:30. 13U & older games usually begin at 7:30pm. Weekend games are all played during the day on Saturday and Sunday. All teams have 10 regular season games and participate in a season ending double elimination tournament.

Our home field is at Olde Providence Elementary School. We also will play away games at other associations affiliated with Char-Meck Softball. These include:  Pineville, Myers Park, South Park, Mint Hill, Weddington, Steele Creek, Matthews, Porter Ridge, and Indian Trail.
