NWLL Girls' Softball

UpdatedWednesday March 11, 2020 byNWLL.

Be a part of the little-known but fast-growing Northwest Little League GIRLS SOFTBALL PROGRAM!  Please spread the word to other families as we work to build up our great girls league!  If you have questions about registration, please contact the NWLL registrar: registrar@nwlldc.org.

TEAMS:
NWLL Softball is open to girls ages 8-14 and has spring AND fall seasons.  We build skills and play against teams in other parts of DC.  For spring 2019, we hope to field:

  • A 14s team (girls ages 14 and 13)
  • A 12s team (girls ages 12 and 11)
  • A 10s team (girls ages 10 and 9).
  • 8-year-old girls are welcome to participate in the league and will take part in the skills clinic (and games, depending on ability/confidence!)

ELIGIBILITY:
Girls can participate in NWLL Softball if they live OR go to school in our geographic boundaries.  Click HERE to see a map of our huge zone, which stretches from the Maryland line all the way into downtown and includes the following neighborhoods (and more): AU Park, Berkley, Burleith, Cathedral Heights, parts of Cleveland Park, Foxhall, Georgetown, Glover Park, Kent, Massachusetts Heights, McLean Gardens, Observatory Circle, Palisades, Spring Valley, parts of Tenleytown, Wesley Heights, Woodley Park.

PRACTICES:
We practice at Friendship “Turtle” Park (45th and Van Ness Streets, NW).  Girls should endeavor to attend both weekly practices, but are still welcome on our teams if they can only attend one or the other.

  • Weeknight: 1.5 hours on a weeknight to be determined.
  • Sundays: Clinics will be held from 2-4pm.

GAMES:

  • Times: Games are also on Sundays, either during the clinic time slot or at other times, which will be announced when the season starts.  If we have enough coaching volunteers, we will hold both Sunday games AND clinics and girls not playing in games will still get to participate in the clinic.
  • Locations: We play at home and away.  Away games are most frequently played in Crestwood, Georgetown and Capitol Hill.

COACHING:

Northwest Little League Girls Softball relies on volunteer coaches and, as we expand the program, we need more coaches!  In the past, we have benefited from a combination of parents and recent college grads serving as coaches.  We can use full time coaches AND people who are just able to help out sometimes.  Please contact the softball commissioner to volunteer: softball@nwlldc.org.
