Prior to the start of games, a coach may have one to three practices per week (two would be reasonable in most cases). After games start, there will generally be one practice per week. Emphasis is placed on instruction and playing different positions.
The Spring season is the “competitive“ season. In general, 12 to 16 games are played (12 games is normal) during season. Prior to the start of games, a coach may have two practices per week. After games start, there will generally be one practice per week depending on the coach. Scores are kept, more emphasis is placed on winning, and standings are kept in most leagues. There is an “All-Star” league that plays at the end of the regular season.
