What equipment does a player need?

All players need their own glove. Girls in grades 1 through 5 should have a glove large enough to fit an 11 inch softball. If the glove feels too large, you can always try a batting glove with the fielding glove to help the fit. 
Girls grades 6 through 8 should have a glove that is large enough to fit a 12 inch softball. 

Rubber cleats are recommended, but not required.  

Although helmets can be supplied by coaches, most players feel more comfortable wearing their own helmet.  
All helmets for travel league players (ie. grades 3 through 8) require cages.

Westwood Youth Softball requires that all players grades 3 through 8 wear an infielder mask.

Westwood Youth Softball also requires black softball/baseball pants for Grades 3 through 8. And sliding pads for players in Grades 6 through 8, as sliding is taught and encouraged in certain situations.  

Each team has an equipment bag with balls, bats, and catcher equipment. 

Players may decide to use their own bat. However, all bats used in travel league games must have an ASA/USA certified stamp or it will not be allowed.
