Softball, subject to change

There will be one 1.5 hour practice on a weeknight (M-F) and 1 game on Saturday each week.  Weeknight games will only happen in the case of a make-up. 

There may be other opportunities throughout the season to participate in league clinics or skill sessions, but those would be voluntary.

Middle School League (6th, 7th & 8th grades), subject to change

Practice and Game Schedule:
Please get with your team coach to find out your practice schedule.  Games are typically scheduled on Saturday, Tuesday and Thursday, but are possible on any day depending on the weather and the need for make up games.  

Games are played primarily on Field 6 at Medlock Park and Kelley Cofer Park in Tucker. There may also be some games that require travel to other parks, such as Dunwoody Senior Baseball, Wade Walker.

The season will end with a tournament, hopefully the week after DeKalb County Spring Break, weather permitting, but may go longer if need be.
