Softball Field Improvements
I wanted to thank everyone for their efforts during our first field day last Sunday and throughout the last few months. There softball community of volunteers has been working very hard to collect sponsorships, make field improvements and prepare for the 2015 season. Some of the latest improvements include the new batting cage and the two brand new dugouts on our third field. In addition to improvements, there is a lot of activity underway as we prepare for our first week of practice next week.
Field Day – Saturday April 11th – Volunteers Needed
Great job to those who worked so hard last Saturday to get a jump on field preparation. One of the fields has already been leveled, cut and raked. It looks great! There is new stone under each of the sets of bleachers along with new stone around our dugouts and concession stand. This was all done by volunteers in one day. We have one last field day on Saturday, 4/11 at the North Salem fields to finish up all of our projects and get ready to begin our practices. This means we need everyone’s help for at least a few hours to assist with raking, picking up leaves, painting dugouts, sweeping, cleaning up the concession stand, etc. This will only get done with your help!
Coaches Clinic Offered on April 10th
Evaluations went very smoothly for our 8U and 10U teams and coaches for 6U, 8U, 10U and 12U have made initial contact regarding practice schedules. There is a coaches clinic that is available for all of our coaches that will be held in Brownsburg this coming Friday, April 10th at 6pm at Brownsburg Diamond 1. This is a great opportunity for our coaches to learn some age appropriate drills that help build successful softball mechanics. This is a new offering for our league this year and one that I hope many of our coaches will be able to take advantage of this year.
Trash Bag Sales- Forms Available 1st Week of Practice
Coaches will be distributing our trash bag order forms during the first week of practice. This is the easiest item I have ever sold!! People actually request to buy them…. Doesn’t get any easier than that. Our trash bag sales are instrumental to our ability to continue improving our fields.
Our season for our 14U and 16U season starts in May and details will be coming out soon for the schedule. We will be closing registration soon – please sign up if you’re still interested and haven’t had a chance to do so!
Great job again on Field Day last weekend! I look forward to what can be accomplished this Saturday – bring your rake and I’ll see you there!

The Tri-West Youth Softball League consists of the communities of Lizton, North Salem, and Pittsboro, as well as outlying areas. Our League is non profit any and all resources go to help the players. We have a board of volunteers that run the league. We have established an outstanding summer fast pitch softball program for girls between the ages of 4 and 16 years. Our program encourages participation from all skill levels with volunteer coaches and licensed ASA umpires. In the last 4 years, our league has tripled in numbers. As our communities expand, we foresee continued growth in our league.
