2022 Girls Spring Softball Program


PARPC Girls recreational softball is a great program for youth to learn the sport of softball or brush up your skills! It’ a 2-3x per week schedule so it’s not a huge commitment and runs from mid-April to early June. Includes a softball t-shirt and softball socks.


  • U-10: 7 -10 years old as of January 1st, 2022
  • U-12: 11-12 years old as of January 1st, 2022
  • U-14: 13-14 years old as of January 1st, 2022

Practices: begin mid-April.  Two practices per week in the first two weeks of preseason, when games start in week #3, games are 1-2x per week with some practices. Game schedule will be available late April when eligible teams are signed up and games are assigned from the softball league. SCHEDULE TIMEFRAME: Schedules do not come out until after registration closes and all papers are received in order to leave no child behind and the opportunity to be on a team that fits their schedule of days available noted on registration forms. Also, games will be released the end of April in order to accommodate the softball league requirements and other team’s schedules in neighboring areas. Again, in an effort to leave no child behind for the opportunity to participate in recreational sports. Each season is different due to this, and we appreciate your patience.

Covid-19 Update to Parents:

Dear Parents,

First and foremost, we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.  We have received questions from the community about if and how COVID-19 will change this year’s athletic season.  We know this outbreak has been stressful to many and recognize that exercising and participating in activities like sports can be a healthy way to cope with stress and connect with our community.  After careful thought and planning, we are excited to let you know that we plan to resume youth sports while following CDC considerations to protect players, families, and our community.

The health and safety of our athletes, staff, and volunteers remain our highest priority!  Below, you will find a summary of actions we are taking to help ensure we are lowering COVID-19 risk as much as possible while also allowing our athletes to play.  We are:

  • Intensifying cleaning and disinfection by disinfecting equipment between use as feasible.
  • Reducing physical closeness or contact between players when possible such as allowing players to focus on building individual skills  keeping children in small groups, and staggering arrival and drop off times when feasible, putting signs and using cones and lines on fields to designate that coaches and players stay 6 feet apart, discouraging unnecessary physical contact, such as high fives, handshakes, fist bumps, and hugs and replacing these with a modified cheer.
  • Postponing travel outside of our local community
  • Promoting healthy hygiene practices such as hand sanitizer before and after practices and games, encouraging children to cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or to use the inside of their elbow, and reminding them to not spit.
  • Masks:  Optional for coaches, officials, parents and athletes at this time for outdoor sports.
  • Limiting the sharing of equipment. 
  • Spectators: Please social distance 6 feet apart from each other and from the softball field.
