TONAWANDA VALLEY YOUNG LADIES FAST PITCH SOFTBALL
To parents and girls aged 7-16:
We offer an instructional/recreational program that plays fast pitch softball. We are based in Batavia but open to any young lady in and around Genesee County. We teach the basics of pitching, hitting, and fielding and most of our coaches are parents themselves with many years of experience. Sportsmanship and courtesy are our prime values as we try to teach self-esteem but also team play/spirit as our ladies come from many backgrounds. Our home field is Lions Park located on Edward Street in Batavia across from the VFW Post. Past participants have been teams from Elba, Byron-Bergen, Pembroke, and Oakfield as well as some ladies from Alexander, Stafford, and Leroy.
The majority of our games are played in Batavia with a few road games within 10-20 minutes of Batavia. Our season begins on or about Memorial Day and usually is completed by mid-July. Our age groups, 7-9 and 10-12, will begin after Memorial Day and our age group 13-16 on or about June 5. If a young lady is 12 and in the 7th grade it is best that she play with our 13-15 age group, since this is the modified-level age group. Many of the modified, JV, and even varsity softball plays at all our local schools have played in our league. We are exploring a team of participants ages 16-19 with most games being played in Bergen.
If you would like to pursue registration, please call me at 585/344-0481. We are currently registering last year’s participants and are taking new inquiries. Open registration will be held at the Batavia City Centre FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 27: 6:00 - 8:00 P.M. and SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 28: 10:30 A.M. - 3:00 P.M. However, you can apply at this time, saving you a trip to that registration. We have no geographic limitations for participants.
Please do not hesitate to call me with any questions about our program.
Yours in softball,
