Our in house programs are still on hold. We are waiting to confirm if the area associations that we play with will be holding softball programs this summer. We are also waiting to see if the group size is increased to more than 10 participants that would allow us to play games. If this is not we still may be able to offer a more instructional softball registration this summer. Please be patient as we wait for this information.
