2024 Softball 

Dive into the world of recreational softball with Valpo Parks, where we tailor skills and drills to accommodate athletes at any level or age. Whether your young player is just starting or looking to refine their skills, our program emphasizes teamwork, positive coaching, and peer motivation to ensure everyone has a blast while feeling accomplished. Open to girls ages 5-12, our league offers opportunities for in-house and inter-county play, allowing them to advance their skills through friendly competition. Join us for a season of softball excitement, where every swing, catch, and throw contributes to the team spirit

Valpo Parks 6U softball is a stepping stone for your athlete between traditional t-ball and coach pitch softball. Athletes will spend half of the season playing t-ball and transition into coach pitch for the last half of the season in order to prepare them for the next level of softball. Practices begin approximately 2 weeks before first game. No coach or friend requests accepted.
