Hamp Parks & Recreation Introduction to Softball
Due to a variety of reasons, and for a better softball experience, we will be merging this program with Northampton Little League Softball 8 & under program (8u). This is going to be an exciting new collaboration which will be focused on skill development and fun for girls ages 6-8.
Just like Intro to Softball, this is a coach’s pitch program. This is so participants can develop a consistent ability to make contact with the ball. In addition to highly qualified volunteer coaches, participants will be getting lessons and instruction from Northampton High School softball players and coaches. Teams will practice and play a few games against other local 8u teams, including Easthampton, Southampton and Hadley. We anticipate team activities being 2-3 times a week, weeknights and weekends. The season will start with practices in mid April, game beginning the first week of May, and the season will conclude around the end of the school year. Each player will be provided a uniform shirt, headband and socks, parents are asked to purchase grey softball pants.
