News and Notes


      Diamond Divas

We are currently looking for girls who are 10 to not older than 13 on December 31, 2015 to try out for the Newton area traveling softball team. Those who are interested would try out at Agnes Patterson on July 24th and July 25th. Friday time is set for 6pm to 8pm and Saturday is 8am to 10am.  These will be girls who are dedicated to softball, have a desire to learn, and are coachable individuals. This will be a competitive league in nature and we would expect the girls to be at all practices and all Saturday and Sunday tournaments. Those that are in a soccer league that plays on Saturdays would want to choose one or the other. The cost of registration will be somewhere around $150.00 This will include Team Jersey, Team pants, Team socks, game balls for tournaments, insurance if required, and USSSA registration. Thank you all in advance for a great season. Please respect that tryouts and practices will be closed to parents unless authorized. If you have interest in assisting please let me know. Please contact me at the information below to register for tryouts.

Thanks to EVERYONE who came out and enjoyed NGSA night


Please go through your closets, ball bags, etc to see if you have equipment your child might not be using or has outgrown for the year. We really want to make softball affordable for everyone, so if you are willing to sell items inexpensively or to give, please post here or on our Face Book page. We want this to be an option every year for our old and new players.

Look for us on Facebook.
