Three Cheers for Spring Softball!

We're looking forward to a fun, safe softball season!  Highlights: 

  • The season is scheduled to run from April 24 through mid June
  • Teams typically play and/or practice twice each week (one weeknight and one weekend day)
  • Teams are assigned by school for t-ball, 8U, and 10U. Players in older leagues are drafted/assigned to help ensure team parity

The health and safety of our players is our first priority. And, MYS will strictly enforce health & safety guidelines. For more information, please read:  MYS Health and Wellness Guidelines.

Melrose Youth Softball

Melrose Youth Softball (MYS) is dedicated to teaching softball while emphasizing teamwork, sportsmanship, and self-respect. We support the Melrose, Mass. community by providing:

  • Leagues for ages from pre-kindergarten (t-ball) through high school (16U)

  • Teams for spring, summer, and fall

  • Skills clinics for multiple age groups

  • Opportunities for girls and adults to coach, umpire, and support player development

MYS emphasizes sportsmanship and respect for teammates, opponents, umpires and coaches. The league, coaches and other volunteers work together to advance players’ skills and to foster good sportsmanship from all involved.

Leagues by Age
