Piedmont Girls Softball Registration Now Open!

Posted by Len Gilbert on October 11, 2010

Softball is more than just a game!

It begins as early as in the 6U division, playing catch, chasing the balls, getting a great hit off of the coach, and then of course, it is the friends on the bench and the cheering of your team mates while they run around the bases! It continues into the older divisions and becomes sharing a pizza, watching a PHS varsity game, maybe even a movie or two and before you know it, solid friendships are formed that follow into middle school, high school and beyond. Each spring these friendships bloom in the presence of an 11 or 12 inch softball!

Winning is not the primary purpose of the league. Emphasis is placed on having fun, while developing solid fundamental softball skills. The element that makes it “fun” is participation. The softball program focuses on skill development, team cooperation, sportsmanship and respect for others. The Piedmont Softball league will also be supported through age targeted coaching and skill clinics led by professional coaches. Teams will be selected the first week in February, and rosters distributed shortly thereafter. Softball involves one weekly practice and a Saturday game from March 5th – June 4th, 2011. Games are played against teams from Piedmont, Oakland and Alameda.

Don’t forget to register! Deadline is December 17th!
