Welcome to the home of the youth softball program with Howard Suamico Youth Sports Association. We offer fun, competitive and safe leagues for girls age 4 and up. From learning the fundamentals of the game to forming advanced skills, your daughter is poised for a positive experience.
Registration will open February 1st, 2021.
Every age group league, with the exception of the Pee Wee League, will practice on Monday nights, and play games on Wednesday nights. The focus will be on learning softball fundamentals and practicing skills instead of playing games only. We will need parent coaches at each age level so please consider helping out!
