No, softballs aren’t soft and unfortunately that’s a misconception you too will have to correct if you choose to join us.
A variant of Baseball; yep, that’s about all softball in ACS has with baseball on TV.
ACSoftball is a family of players that love the game and love each other. We may not have the most resources, our tee-stands and backstop may be almost-functional, but ACSoftball makes up for its lack of resource with its sense of family and warm environment for learning.
A day in Softball would look similar to most other CCA’s. We train after school on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. On all these days, we train until about 6.30pm. It should be said that getting bruised in softball is fairly common because many people use the field at once and the odd, poorly thrown softball may occasionally catch you in the head where it hurts alot, or in the shin where it hurts most.
All in all, softball is a CCA mainly targeted towards players with past experience in the sport or else willing to train hard to catch up with the rest and if you fall into either category, on behalf of the ACSoftball family, we welcome you!
