Melrose Youth Softball

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

  • Leagues for ages from pre-kindergarten (Tee Ball) through 8th grade

  • Teams for spring, summer, and fall

  • Skills clinics for multiple age groups

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

MYS is an all volunteer organization based in Melrose, Massachusetts.  There are many ways for parents and caregivers to support our league:  coaching, event planning, working with sponsors, communications / social media, administrative support, etc.

If you are interested in learning more about how you can support MYS, email us at  Thanks!
