Softball

 

Softball logoTuesdays at 6:30 p.m. (show up as early at 6pm to warm up)
June - July at Robesonia Park

No sign-ups...no uniforms…just show up! Feel free to invite friends and neighbors.

Q: WHO CAN PLAY?
A:
Anyone age 15 or older. Because one of our primary goals is outreach, we encourage you to invite your friends and neighbors, regardless of whether they attend CBFC.

Q: WHERE DO WE PLAY?
A:
We will be playing at Robesonia Park (S. Church St & W. Ruth Ave, Robesonia). Restroom facilities, basketball courts, playground and open spaces are available, so we encourage families to come out to cheer on their family and friends! (map)

Q: WHEN DO WE PLAY? A: We will play from 6:30pm - 8:00pm every Tuesday evening, beginning June 6 and ending July 25. However, all players are invited to come out as early as 6:00pm if they wish to warm up or help set up the fields for the games.

Q: DO I NEED TO SIGN UP OR COMMIT TO ATTEND EVERY WEEK?
A:
No! Just show up on the nights that you can make it. No commitment or advance notice necessary. HOWEVER, if you would like to be placed on the email list to receive updates about upcoming softball events or notified of rain outs, please contact Paul Harvey ( ).

Q: WHAT IS THE COST?
A:
Tuesday evening softball is FREE!

Q: DO I NEED EQUIPMENT? A: Church will provide bases, bats, and balls; and there may be a couple extra gloves on hand in case anyone forgets theirs. Anything else is the responsibility of the player.

Q: WHAT ABOUT A UNIFORM?
A:
There is no uniform or shirt color requirement for Tuesday evening softball.

Q: WHAT IS THE FORMAT?
A:
Designated coaches for that night will split the players into teams, depending on the number of players present. If you've come with family or friends and want to play on the same team, we will honor that request. There are no predetermined teams, so you may have some different teammates from week to week. The reason we select teams in this manner is to allow for new relationships to be built, even if just an acquaintance or familiar face.

Q: IS THERE A REQUIRED SKILL OR EXPERIENCE LEVEL?
A:
No. All skill levels are welcome, and the coaches will do their best to even out the skill level of the teams. The game play goal is to have fun, competitive games while keeping everyone safe.

Q: ARE THERE ANY SPECIAL SOFTBALL EVENTS BEING PLANNED?
A:
Yes. July 4th this year is one of our softball Tuesdays. Robesonia has given us the use of their pavilion for that day. We will be having a family picnic complete with free hot dogs and bounce houses from 4:00PM - 8:00PM. This is a great opportunity to open your life, and table, to whoever needs a friend (that's you!).

  • CHURCH LEAGUE TOURNAMENTS: There are monthly, highly competitive tournaments taking place in our area (Berks/Lancaster) Friday evenings/Saturdays throughout the summer. If there is enough interest to form a team, we would love to do so. Contact Paul Harvey if you are interested in forming a competitive teams. NOTE: These events would have per player fees associated with them as they are not run by CBFC.

Q: HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?
A:
We are always looking for people who are willing to coach a team, prepare the field(s), or help to plan special events! Please contact Paul Harvey ( ) for more information.
