MISSION STATEMENT

Our Mission and Commitment is to provide our young athletes with an experience that will give them the skill set necessary to excel in the sport of Softball and beyond. This will be accomplished through the development of team spirit, sportsmanship, positive self-esteem and fundamentals as well as by providing opportunities for personal and team growth and achievement. 

 

RECREATIONAL SOFTBALL LEAGUES (for girls only)

The softball leagues are divided strictly on the basis of school grade.  All leagues play 2 days per week, usually with start times at 6:15pm or 8:00pm.  While our preference is always to play games at 6:15pm, field availability requires that we rotate the 8:00pm game times through the teams in Minors and above.  In Pee Wee, Minors and Majors there are no scheduled Monday games, but the Softball teams have Mondays if they wish to schedule an extra practice, or make-up a rained-out game.
