HHYA Softball

Spring 2022 Softball Registration is NOW OPEN!

Opening Day is April 9th

HHYA offers a variety of fun and exciting opportunities to learn the game of softball.  Our softball board is full of passionate parents with many years of softball experience who are dedicated to creating the best  experience for all of our players.  Our hope is to share the love of softball that we have with our players and that they will carry this love with them for years to come.  We feel that it is important that our players see positive role models within the program.  Because of this, we offer opportunities for the girls to create relationships with others within our community, such as the Haddon Heights High School girls softball team.  We also have many volunteer opportunities for parents with softball and baseball experience and children in the program.  Softball is more than just a game and we hope to develop not only a love for the sport but connection with the community.  

If you are interested in registering your child for one of our programs, please see the drop down menu under Softball on the HHYA website.  If you are interested in coaching or volunteering, please see options available when registering your child.

If you have any questions about softball, please contact Megan Cormier or Erica Doyle at [email protected].

Rookies:  The Rookies division includes 7 and 8 year olds and is a machine pitch division designed to emphasize the fundamentals of softball. Players are encouraged to try different fielding positions, with safety in mind, to enhance the softball experience for the player.  There is no base stealing in this division.  Typically there are one to two coaches on the field during the games to help the girls learn the plays on the field.  The season will consist of 2 practices a week.  As the season progresses it becomes one practice and one game a week.  10-12 games are played against teams from surrounding towns (Haddon Heights, Barrington, Audubon and Haddon Township).  Practices will begin mid to late March with the first game usually being on opening day.  Players will need a bat, glove, helmet and cleats.
