New in 2014
Grosse Pointe Woods-Shores Little League will be adding girl’s softball to our league for the 2014 season. Our aim is to form divisions from ages 6-16. Teams formed will be practice and play locally and against teams from other District 6 leagues.

• Instructional Softball, Ages 6-8
• Minor League Softball, Ages 9-12
• Major League Softball, Ages 11-12
• Senior League Softball, Ages 13-16

All girls ages 9-12 must attend one of two tryout dates.

First tryout date is scheduled for March 14 from 6-9 p.m. at Harper Woods High School.

  • Girls ages 9-10:     6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
  • Girls, ages 11-13:   7:30 – 9:00 p.m.

Second tryout date is Sunday, March 30 @ Grosse Pointe South High School
• Girls ages 9-10:  1:00 – 2:30 p.m.
• Girls, ages 11-12:  2:30 – 4:00 p.m.

We are trying to secure a second tryout date at Grosse Pointe North or Grosse Pointe South High School the following week or so after the first tryout. Registration begins online Monday, January 20th.

We need coaches for softball divisions prior to March 7th.

Little League Softball was established nationally in 1974 and today 360,000 athletes participate on more than 24,000 softball teams in over 20 countries.  Every year, local Little Leagues enroll players within their boundaries to create teams and play a regular season against neighboring communities. In June, leagues have the opportunity to select and enter all-star teams to compete in the Little League International Tournament.

*All 12 year olds who wish to play in the Minor League, rather than play in the Major League, must complete a waiver.
