If you don't know a lot about Stay in Softball, we are a group of softball players who love softball and are working hard to make sure that every girl who wants to play softball can. We do this by providing girls and teams with free equipment, free clinics, uniform items and other support. Stay in Softball is run by a Player Advisory Board and a Junior Player Advisory Board (to see the players on these boards, go to "About Us" and the Player Advisory Board page will drop down). An adult Board of Directors assists, mentors and oversees the Player Advisory Boards.
Everyone on the Player Advisory Board has played softball for many years- most of us since we were 5 or 6. Over the years, we have all played rec league, high school and travel softball and the majority of us plan to play in college. Because we have all played softball for so many years, between us, we have been through almost everything a softball player can go through: both good and bad. We have also spoken to hundreds of players through our free clinics, social media pages, etc. and have realized that there is always one of us who can relate to the question or issue presented and give our perspective. Even if we don't have all of the answers - who does?? - players usually like hearing about the experiences (experiences-- not bragging) of other players. So, that is the purpose of this blog: to share our experiences and stories. We also hope that other players use it as a place to share their experiences and stories. Finally, we will also use it to keep everyone up to date on what we are doing to help keep girls in the game and share ways that all players can help.
We would love to add articles from other players as well- so if you want to send us something, please use the contact form on the website or e mail it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we use your article on this main page, we will send you a Stay in Softball t shirt. We hope you enjoy the blog.
