Inver Grove Heights Softball Federation (IGHSF) is a traveling program serving girls ages 6 to High School.  The objective is to develop highly competitive teams with a strong emphasis on player development, commitment, sportsmanship, team work, and knowledge of the game.  
Our program includes weeknight practices and league games, with tournaments on select weekends.  The summer season runs from April through July, with practices and clinic opportunities beginning as early as January.  We also offer a fall season that typically runs from August to the end of September.
Players are grouped based upon their age as of August 31st and play at 5 levels:
  • 8U (6 - 8 years)
  • 10U (9 - 10 years)
  • 12U (11 - 12 years)
  • 14U (13 - 14 years)
  • High School (15+)
Little Spartans Softball (ages 4-6) is the beginning level softball for players with little or no experience that is available through the IGH Parks and Recs Program. The focus is on teaching the basics and having fun! It is an instruction based program that will incorporate scrimmage games. Our IGHSF 8U level is a beginner, low-key softball league and the focus is on skill development. Girls within the 8U level use either a pitching machine or have their coaches pitch to them.  It incorporates both practices and games throughout the season.  
Girls begin pitching themselves beginning at the 10U level and continues as they move through the various age levels in our program. Fastpitch softball is generally the most competitive form of softball and is the same sport you see in High School and College competition. Fastpitch differs primarily from slowpitch softball in that the pitchers deliver the ball with a speedy windmill motion as opposed to a slow, looping motion.
