Spring Softball Season Canceled


It is with great disappointment that we are officially canceling the spring Melrose Youth Softball season due to COVID-19 concerns. The health and safety of our community is paramount, and we greatly appreciate everyone’s efforts to help mitigate the pandemic.

Please note that we are providing a 100% refund for the spring season. We’ve already processed nearly one-third of all refunds and will complete this process by mid-May. Please contact us at with questions regarding refunds.
