Jr. Highlanders girls softball, is a Spring, Summer and Fall ball youth league for girls ages 5-18. We currently have approximately 50 girls from both Somerville as well as local cities and towns participating in our fall league.
We have partnered with SHOW Softball Academy and Somerville Recreation for various fundamental skills and hitting clinics currently underway in the city.
We expect these clinics will help to increase participation in the Spring League which will consist of 8U, 10U, 12U and 14U teams. Registration for the clinics are now open on the Somerville Recreation website: https://www.somervillerec.com.
Jr. Highlanders girls softball was started by the Yellow Diamonds, an 501c3 organization made up of parents, volunteers, coaches and community members who all strive to give local female athletes (ages 5-18) the support they need to succeed in both life and in sports.
Since 2017, Yellow Diamonds have created a strong initiative within the community to raise funds to offset the cost of financial hardship for players, to provide skill based training experiences and seasonal sports opportunities for girls in Somerville.
We believe that by creating these opportunities, young female inner-city athletes will excel in school, in their communities and into their futures.
