LES Lizzies Winter Clinic 2013

Play (soft)ball! The LES Lizzies’ Softball Clinic at the Henry Street Settlement gymnasium has been so successful this winter that the OLS Lizzies plan to keep the ball rolling. This spring and summer, they’re venturing into new territory with the first ever Lower East Side softball league for girls throughout the city.

The league is open to all five boroughs, though games will be played primarily on the LES. It boasts a variety of age brackets, each planning to carry four teams at minimum. Registration is rolling, and started over the weekend. Time is ticking, though, as the season gets underway in early April.

In the meantime, a new winter windmill pitching clinic kicked off this past Wednesday, from 6-7pm, at Basketball City. Cost is $50 for 12 weeks.

More info can be found on the Lizzies Facebook page, or hit up the contacts on the flyer below.
