Softball is an all-girl interscholastic sport that has only been played at Kehoe-France since 2013. Our interscholastic team consists of one large team of girls from fourth grade through seventh grade.
The season lasts approximately two months from mid-March to mid-May. Practices are held two days a week after school. During pre-season preparation, a great deal of time is spent on fundamentals and working together. Most of our fundamental skill training is spent focusing on good hand-eye coordination (catching and pitching), hitting, fielding, base running, and conditioning. Team camaraderie and communication are vital for proper field play.
The season finishes with a week-long tournament where each team must triumph over a number of opponents in order to be named the winner of the Metro-League.
In the Spring of 2016, we ended a fantastic season as runner-up in the Metro-League.
