In the summer months Norwood Youth Softball participates in the competitive Hockomock Girls Summer Softball League. The HGSSL is a travel league that includes towns such as Dedham, Walpole, Westwood, Sharon, Canton, Attleboro, North Attleboro, Raynham, Taunton, and others. The season is 5 weeks starting in mid to late June. Games are played on weeknights (Monday-Thursday) beginning at 6 p.m. Each team plays 2 games per week. Standings are kept and playoffs are held at the end of July.
Age brackets for 2018 teams:
10U – Birth years 2007-2009 (2009 birthdays must have played in the minor league in spring rec)
12U – Birth years 2006 & 2005
14U – Birth years 2004 & 2003
18U – Birth years 1999-2002
Players can not play down a level, but they can play up. The age divisions that we enter teams for will be based on our overall enrollment. We can enter multiple teams in any age division. If there are multiple teams entered for a single age division, the talent will be divided such that there is an "A" team and a "B" team. Tryouts will be held to determine team placement.
The cost for summer ball is $125 includes uniform. Uniforms include a jersey screened with the Norwood Nor'Easters logo, last name and number, pants, and socks.
