Team Practices will start in early April with games running from April to the end of the school year (June).  New softball players are welcome in all divisions as this is an instructional and recreational program, yet competitive enough for all players in town.

Coach Volunteers for Rec League

Based on the commitments listed above for our Spring Rec League, we are always in need of moms and dads to volunteer as Head Coaches or Assistant Coaches. We are here to guide you every step of the way and hope you will consider donating your time to our players. It is a very rewarding experience.

If you are interested in coaching or have questions, please send an email to Mary Wickens at mwickens@westfieldsoftball.org

**NEW** Parent Information

As an all-volunteer organization, the GSLW relies on its families for volunteer support. One option we are looking into based on early feedback and leading practices from other leagues is a Volunteer Bond program designed to promote and encourage more volunteers in a variety of roles throughout the season, both on the field and off. We will continue to share updates as we get closer to our Spring season on this and any other initiatives and programs throughout the year.
