Spring Softball plus Winter Clinics ($150)
Lynnfield Youth Softball (LYSBA) is offering a spring program for K-1 girls currently living or attending school in Lynnfield. On Saturday mornings from May through June, we will meet at the Lynnfield Middle School for a variety of skills, drills, and games. All the girls need to bring is a glove and a desire to have some fun and learn! We are also including the K-1 program in the winter clinics for the first time.
For any child interested in playing a sport, it’s important to build both the confidence and skills necessary at an early age to develop and succeed. Our program will emphasize the foundational basics of the game, including:
• Throwing – grip, motion, follow-through
• Catching and fielding – technique, two hands, learning different positions
• Hitting – grip, stance, timing, making consistent contact
• Running the bases – understanding baserunning
• Equipment – learning proper use of all equipment to protect against injury
Registration fee of $150 covers uniform jersey, field expenses, and insurance for each player. This year due to Covid19 we are asking that all players have their own helmets and bats.

With registration, we are including K-1 in a series of Tuesday afternoon Winter Clinics (3pm-5pm) at the New England Premier Sportsplex on Route 1 *beginning January 4th and running through March 29th*. The clinics are included in registration; whether you choose to take advantage of these early practices is entirely up to you.

Anyone who registers for the spring session, but does not pay via credit/debit card by the close date (March 1, 2022) -- or make other arrangements with the league -- will be automatically moved to the waitlist. If you have a financial hardship, please speak with a board member as it is our longstanding policy to never deny a girl the opportunity to play in our league for financial reasons.
