U13/14 Softball will begin practice on Monday, June 14th from 12:00-1:30 p.m. at Park Bowl Softball Field. This has been a challenging team because many of the Ridge & Valley teams do not have a team to play this summer. The Park and Rec office has been trying to find additional games as it is a big team of players this summer. Posted below is a tentative softball schedule which we are hoping to add a few more games into the schedule with other communities.
HIGH SCHOOL SOFTBALL
