Welcome to Northbridge Youth Softball
It is our mission at the Northbridge Youth Softball Association (NYSA) to provide a safe, enjoyable and rewarding opportunity for girls ages 5 to 14 to participate in the great sport of softball. All registered players will be placed on a team and no player will be cut. Our purpose is in the development of fundamental softball skills and the importance of good sportsmanship, but in so doing we also look to achieve a greater objective: to assist in shaping the overall progression of these girls into honorable and contributing members of our community through the values of courage and teamwork. The fulfillment of exceptional athletic skills or the winning of ball games shall be secondary to our primary goal of developing ethical citizens.
This point should not be overlooked. The softball skills that the girls learn and master will inevitably earn some of them spots on our High School team and may even lead a few to college scholarships. However, the lessons learned regarding teamwork, good sportsmanship and respect, both in victory and in defeat, are our primary concern because these are the teachings all players will take with them throughout their lives.
The NYSA is a not-for-profit organization operated and coached by volunteers and financed by parents and sponsors. We are always open and available to listen to your ideas about improving our league so as to make the girls learning experience more gratifying. In addition, we are always in need of your continued support. Participation in the NYSA may be as involved as coaching or as straightforward as assisting in field preparation. Involvement in the NYSA will certainly reward you as much as it does our players.
We thank you for your interest in our organization and welcome both you and your family to our playing fields - where the dream begins.
