Melrose Youth Softball is a recreational softball program that runs in the Spring and Summer. MYS is dedicated to teaching girls the sport of softball as well as teamwork, cooperation, sportsmanship and self-respect.
MYS hopes that you've had a good summer. Most of the summer softball teams have completed their seasons and I've gotten good feedback from them on the experience. They played twice a week in the evenings on the commons or at a nearyby town's field. As always, the players have improved their skills while building friendships with their teammates. Off the field I understand the teams have done things like a trip to a red socks game, bowling and frozen yogurt. One of the 14U teams still has one more game to play against Beverly tonight up at the Commons - its the last game of their season. If they win, they will have been undefeated (they tied one game). So come out tonight at 6:15pm and watch the last game of the season!
A few details have come together regarding the fall season. We were unable to get enough interested players at the 12U and 18U levels to sponsor a team. This is ok. MYS has traditionally been a Spring & Summer organization because girls move on to other activities in the autumn. However, we will be sponsoring a team at the 10U and 14U levels to play in the ASA league. These teams will play back-to-back double-headers each Saturday for 6 consecutive Saturdays in September and October. All home games will be held at the Pine Banks softball field. The coach for the 10U team will be David Martin while Michael Ackerman will be the head coach of the 14U team.
If you are still interested in playing fall ball, please sign up for the tryouts at the MYS website. If you were 12 years old or younger on 1/1/2016 and still want to play, go ahead and sign up for the tryout to show your interest: http://assn.la/Reg/?r=1:192684. If we can get enough interested players we can still field a team. Coach Sleeper has volunteered to coach, but right now, we don't have enough players (we only have 7). This week is your last chance to sign up!
