For 2023, this is how the age groupings are defined (not by SMSA, but rather by the league in which we play):
LTP 1 & LTP 2: Mondays & Wednesdays
U9 (LTP 3): Tuesdays & Thursdays
U11: Mondays & Wednesdays
U13: Tuesdays & Thursdays
U15: Mondays & Wednesdays
U17: Tuesdays & Thursdays
**LTP 1 & 2 is an in-house development program. The players are placed on small teams, approx 6-8 players. The format is such that the teams practice and develop the basic skills of softball. The first two weeks are strictly practices while these relatively new to softball players learn the basics of throwing, catching and swinging a bat. After the first couple of weeks, the format changes to approximately 45 minutes of practice and then 45 minutes of intersquad game. These teams will play at the same diamond and at the same time twice a week for May and June.
