The Pearl River Softball program conducts annual youth softball clinics during the Fall season, aiming to foster a passion for the sport in the upcoming generation.
Our high school athletes take pride in mentoring and engaging with young girls who express an interest in softball, with the goal of nurturing their enthusiasm for the sport over the long term.
Many of our current varsity softball players once attended these very clinics during their younger years, and this initiative presents them with an opportunity to give back.
Over the years, softball participation statewide has experienced a significant decline in interest. However, hosting youth clinics within our community has proven effective in sustaining and reigniting this interest, alongside the dedicated efforts of volunteers at the local Little League.
This year, we have approximately 10-12 high school softball players, spanning grades 9-12, who have volunteered their time to assist at the clinics. Thus far, we have dedicated approximately 6 hours to running two clinics this Fall. Last year, we committed 10-12 hours to clinic activities. We are actively exploring additional opportunities for engagement this Fall.
