2022 PAL SPRING Softball
Practices will take place during the week (most likely 2x/wk) at Salt Brook Elementary and/or AWR
Games will be on weekends – either Saturdays or Sundays, and will take place both home and away (near surrounding towns).
Teams will be capped at a manageable number per age group andonce the number is met a waitlist for that age group will be started. If a specific age group has a strong number of players registered, there will be an evaluation held to form more than one team in that group.
Registration deadline is Sunday, February 6, 2022.
Those interesting in coaching, please also register as a volunteer coach on Community Pass under PAL as well. This must be done every season. There is no cost. If you are specifically interested in Head Coaching, please e-mail me directly after you register.
Please register as soon as possible.
If you have any questions or have an issue with registering in a timely manner but plan to do so when convenient for your family, please contact Karen Gaeta, PAL Softball Commissioner [firstname.lastname@example.org]
Cost should never be an issue – PAL will help, so please indicate that if needed as well.

NPPAL Softball was started in 2000 with the goals of:
• Improving knowledge and appreciation of softball
• Improving softball skills through drills, practice, and repetition
• Providing fun , positive, and instructive environment
• Encouraging teamwork and sportsmanship
• Developing individual confidence and self esteem
• Playing at more competitive level
• Preparation for future high school play
The mission of New Providence PAL Softball is to facilitate a safe, positive learning environment in which the young ladies of New Providence can learn about and participate in, the sport of fastpitch softball while enhancing their self-esteem, self-confidence, self-discipline and leadership skills – while encouraging a healthy, active lifestyle and time outdoors.
We promise every girl a positive youth sports experience. Years from now, we hope they carry with them wonderful memories of their participation in the program and exhibit the character traits that we’ve hopefully taught: a good work ethic, dedication to realizing a goal, self-motivation, the value of teamwork and, most importantly, respect for themselves and others.
We acknowledge and celebrate the long competitive tradition of travel PAL softball, but realize our participants are children, not professionals. It is our goal to try to find a place for every girl to play no matter what her current skill level or experience. It is a priority that their experience be fun.
