2024 Spring Girls Softball

The Algonquin Girls Softball Program is dedicated to creating a positive sporting and social environment, where the ideals of good sportsmanship, teamwork, honesty, and fair play are core, with secondary importance placed on winning. Our goal is for each player to have fun, while gaining a rewarding softball experience and developing skills in fast-pitch softball.
 
Spring Season
The spring season begins late April and runs through mid June. For 2024, we are looking to play teams in our own programs, in addition to neighboring towns. This will help foster a more balanced and matched level of competitiveness.

There is potential we will have to combine Sandlot and Rookies if the numbers are low.

Levels of Play

SANDLOT (Pre-k and K)
