Girls 7th and 8th Grade Softball CYO


When: We are beginning conditioning. We will practice 2-3 days a week in St. Charles gym until the weather is better, then outside on the diamond there, or may be Ash Twp Diamond.

Where: St Charles Gym Swan Creek/Dixie - Newport

What: Sign up to play softball this year

When: First meeting will be Saturday- 28th 3:30-5:30.-Bring mits and bats if you have them. We will be measuring everyone for length and weight of bat.

How: Come and sign up but come with clothing ready to practice.

How Much: We are not sure this will be a cyo sport so there may be no cost or $35 at the most. I will let you kow.

Who will we play: St. Mary Monroe has just enough to make a team so we will play them about 2x, Jefferson public, and maybe other public schools.

Why- To learn softball skills, which can easily overlap to volleyball skills, keep active, and prepare for summer softball. This is an opportunity for the 7th and 8th grade girls to see if this is a sport they like and want to be active. They do not have to have any experience at all to play. We are there to teach and have fun. I will be co-coaching (Toinette Broschay (Shelby Broschay’s Mom). We need a few more girls to make a full team so please consider it. There will never be practices on Sunday or Monday. During the week it is possible that Wed and/or Thurs pm will be practices. We are working so hard on this because we want the girls to continue to be active and Shelby is very excited that she may get a chance to play with her friends from St. Mary. If you have any questions/concerns please contact me at 734-693-2443 or If you can’t make the Sat practice, please let me know, so I know you are interested. Michelle Brinkmeier will be co-coaching with me.
