We are excited to start the 2024 Spring Softball Season at Peachtree Ridge. There are many exciting things happening for our program. Our athletes and parents have become more engaged in development and looking for ways their athlete can get better when not at the park. Not only does that help in the young lady's development, it helps to create a stronger program for everyone. We recently had a catcher's clinic here at the park and are planning for speed and agility along with some other developmental opportunities.
Our program offers Peanuts (3 and 4 years old) all the way through 18U. This allows the young ladies in our community to enjoy the game of softball from pre-school through college. Here at Peachtree Ridge, we have incredible families and volunteers who help to create a great environment for all of our families and guests.
Last Fall, we created a travel arm of our program called The Ridge Runners. This travel program is designed to specifically target the athletes in our cluster who have an interest in one day playing on the high school level. It's unique because it gives our girls opportunities they may not normally have in a traditional travel ball system. Our 14U Ridge Runners had a great Fall 2023 season and we are looking forward to seeing if opportunities may open up for 12U and 10U divisions as well.
We have an incredible relationship with the softball coaches and staff at Peachtree Ridge High School and we have aided with the administration of the Peachtree Ridge Middle School program for many years. Our goal is to develop a strong pipeline and pathway for our athletes to learn and grow as softball players here at the park and one day represent The Ridge on the high school level and beyond.
We will re-institute our annual spring visit to Youth Day at the University of Georgia where we visit campus, eat in the dining hall and go watch a University of Georgia Softball game on Sunday, April 28, 2024. And, we will also continue our close collaboration with the Georgia Gwinnett Softball Program where we will have Peachtree Ridge Day on Saturday, March 2, 2024.
Here at Peachtree Ridge Youth and Developmental Softball, we strive for your athlete to grow and become the best softball player she can be, but for them to also become great citizens as well.
I would like to thank the softball board members for all of their hardwork and dedication to the program. The amount of effort behind the scenes to make it all work is enormous!!!
If your daughter has a friend(s) who has never played softball or hasn't played in awhile, use your influence to get them registered and back out at the park...for there are not many other better places to be!
Looking forward to a great Spring season of softball!
