One of the benefits of playing the sport of Softball is that not much equipment is needed for a beginner player. In fact, the only piece of specialized equipment that you might have to purchase is a Softball Glove. All of the other equipment - the bats, helmets, bases, balls, and uniforms – are provided by most Softball Associations.
Make sure you check with your local Softball Association before purchasing your equipment – if they offer the BlastBall or Learn to Play program for your child’s age group (generally ages 4-6) your child may not event need a Softball Glove yet!
Of course, as with many sports you should always make sure your child has a good pair of running shoes that provide the proper support for running.
Now your child is ready to PLAY SOFTBALL!
