    How To Size a Slowpitch Softball Glove?

    When it comes to choosing a slowpitch softball glove, it's important to consider the age and size of the player.  As she grows and becomes more skilled, she will need a larger glove to match her skills and expectations.

    In slowpitch girls and women's softball (as well as adult co-ed) we use an 11” ball, while in fastpitch and men's leagues they will use 12".

    You will find the size marked on the thumb or last finger the glove.  Also, you will find that various brands (Mizuno, Easton, Louisville, Wilson) size their gloves differently.

    For K-3, a glove between 9-11" is recommended.  For the youngest players, some gloves are so small that a ball can barely fit inside.  However, the player's hand and strength might not be enough to handle a glove that is much bigger.  We use Incrediballs at the K-1 level so injury is avoided, but at grades 2-3, a proper fitting glove is important.

    For grades 4-6: 10-11".  Again, this can depend on the size and strength of the player.

    For grades 7th through adult: 11.5-12.5"

    Most girls are ready to move to a bigger glove in 7th grade, usually the last one that they might need.

    Finally, whatever glove you pick, please take a Sharpie and write your contact info.  Many, many gloves are left behind every year.
