The NWS Elite Fastpitch 18U Softball Teams purpose is to promote 
and utilize the game of Fastpitch Softball to assist in the development of young women, 
who will then be able to utilize the skills they have learned such as teamwork, 
dedication and working towards their goals throughout their lives.

Being a travel team, players are expected to be dedicated and attend all practices and games.

Practices are held in the Fall from September through October
and then at an indoor facility from November through mid-March.
Practices are held on Saturdays during the off-season and usually 
Tuesdays and Thursdays during the tournament season in 
Agawam and/or Southwick.

Tournaments are held mid-June through July.
We participate in 2 - 3 College Showcases.
Fall ball is September through October in East Hartford, CT.
We compete in 2 to 3 Winter tournaments in Lake George, NY.

We hold fundraisers to offset the costs as much as we can.
Any ideas for new fundraisers are always welcome.

Base cost is $1200 (cost will reflect tournament/team decisions)  .
This includes bat bag, helmet, uniforms and tournament fees.
Winter practice fee is $200.

Payment can be made in full or broken down into the payments as follows:
1st payment of $300 - Due September 1
2nd payment of $300 - Due December 1
