Get your bats, gloves and smiles ready for Spring photos! Marianne Gallagher, owner of Femia Photography, will be taking team and individual photos of our girls beginning the first week in May. Coaches will be sending schedules to the teams the week prior.
Billerica Softball offers girls in kindergarten through high school the opportunity to play softball in our spring recreation league. Traditionally our largest recreation league, most girls begin the sport by playing spring softball.
Spring softball runs from late April to mid-June. In order to promote and grow the sport of girls fastpitch softball at a recreational and competitively balanced level, in 2016, Billerica and Tewksbury Girls’ Softball Leagues began to play inter-league games at the 10U, 12U and 14U Divisions. The collaboration was a success and in 2017, with assistance from the Greater Lowell Umpires Association, teams from Bedford, Concord-Carlisle, North Reading, Wilmington and Winchester were added and The Merrimack Valley Girls Softball League was established. The majority of games are played at home in Billerica but each season girls travel to another town for 3 to 4 games.
The divisions are as follows:
U8 – Instructional league for Kindergarten, First Grade and new Second Graders U10- 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade U12 – 5th and 6th grade U14 – 7th and 8th grade U18 – 9th to 12th grade (when possible)
