Melrose Youth Softball

Hi everyone,

The Melrose Youth Softball organization is teaming up with the Melrose High School Softball team to offer a spring skills clinic that is organized and put on by the high school players themselves.  All of the instructors will be players from the team and will be able to share insights they have gained over years of experience playing the sport. Our MHS players are outstanding students and citizens as well as skilled athletes. They are excellent role models for our younger players and MYS is looking forward to the MHS team working with our players!  They will be offering instruction in basic throwing and catching, as well as fielding (infield and outfield), hitting, pitching and catching.

                There are two clinics scheduled:

girls in grades 1 through 4 that will run from 9am to 11am

girls in grades 5 through 9 that will run from 11:30am until 1:30pm

                They will all take place at the Melrose Common.

                Space is limited, so please sign up at the MYS online registration page right away:

                Also the high school team will be selling T-Shirts for $15 as a fundraiser for their program.

Other than that, the spring weather continues to warm the fields. As soon as we hear something on the start date, we will let you know.

Coaches should be getting in touch with you over the coming days to let you know which team your daughter will be playing on this year.  If you haven’t heard anything in a week, please feel free to get in touch with me.

How are the clinics organized?

At the winter skills clinics experienced coaches will help the players with all aspects of their softball skills. At the younger level (1st and 2nd grade) the league's previous president, Michelle Carson will have the help of some of the high school softball team players to teach the youngest girls the basics of how to field and how to hit. At the Rams clinic the girls will be split in to age-appropriate groups so the Rams' coaches will be able to teach specific skills to the players. They spend 10 or 15 minutes on each drill for about 2 hours. Because there is so little "standing around" time, it keeps the girls busy and focused on what they are learning. It is really very effective and is a very enjoyable way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
