ELCO Youth Girls Softball Program


Monthly Meeting:

When: The 3rd Wednesday of each month
Where: Goodwill Fire Company #30 (behind the Turkey Hill in Myerstown).
Time: Meetings start at 6:00 PM. We look forward to having you there!


This program is intended for girls of the same grade, age and abilities to compete against other girls in their community as well as to develop and prepare them for high school softball.


The ELCO Youth Girls Softball Program strives to help promote a positive resource for young girls in the ELCO School District and beyond in developing the fundamental skills, sportsmanship and sense of competitiveness while having fun so they can build upon in both their athletic and scholastic endeavors.


It is to be understood that both the players and all attending practices, games and on social media sites will conduct themselves civilly and respectfully towards all involved in the program. These children are here to learn and have fun, not meet the expectations of college recruiters so lets keep emotions in perspective please. Coaches will be approachable, after games and practice, for any comments that can be addressed with a positive corrective solution in a respectful manor. Inability to accept and follow these terms will be dealt with accordingly.

Who is Eligible?

ALL girls Kindergarten through 8th grade. After Registration has ended and the number of players have been determined we will then determine league and team placement for each grade level.

Important Softball Dates:

Players are to be registered between November 25th, 2017 and February 11th, 2018. Registration must be ended early in order to create rosters, order uniforms, and prepare for the upcoming season.

Rosters will be formed at or around the February 21st, 2018 meeting.

Games will be played from late April, through May till third week in June.

* Weather will be a factor in weekly scheduling for both practices and games requiring alternate dates to be scheduled, including weekends
