FREE Monday Softball Clinics for Majors/Seniors Players

     We have had great feedback on our Monday Majors/Seniors softball clinics with Coach Rivera.  The girls had some fun and got some good practice in.  Thank you to our own Coach Keith McHugh for helping out!    Since outdoor Monday clinics on lower Donati have been so well received, we are adding an additional week!  The remaining four clinics will be at 5:30-7:00 pm on Mondays September 16th, 23rd, 30th and now October 7th.  If you already e-mailed us, you are all set for your daughter to continue on with the clinics.  If you have not already reached out to us and want your daughter to take advantage of this awesome opportunity for FREE softball clinics, just email us at hooksettsoftball@gmail.com

Pitching and Catching Lessons Starting on Tuesday September 17th @ the Town Hall Gym

 Pitching and Catching lessons are starting on Tuesday September 17th at 5:30 pm and 6:30 pm respectively and running for 8 weeks.  Our pitching clinic with Coach Tim Bill is all booked up, but we still have space in our catching clinic with Coach Lee Makris. Remember, we are running a ½ price deal on the catching clinic ($75 for players born 2003-2008 and $60 for players born in 2009-2010).  Email us at hooksettsoftball@gmail.com to let us know if you are interested. 

Check Out the Donati Softball Fencing Project!

The new fencing and netting is up on the upper field!  If you are in the area, please feel free to stop by and check it out.  We have new higher fencing with netting along the 1st base line to coral many of the foul balls that were previously going onto the football field.  There is also a double pitching cage that was built, which will also have netting along with home plates and pitching mounds.  Look forward to the pitching cage being up and running for the spring 2020 season!  This project was funded by Hooksett Girls Softball with help from the Hooksett Youth Athletic Association and the donations of different softball organizations that use the softball fields at Donati.  This is everyone working together to provide a great upgrade for Donati Field!   Big Thanks to HGSL Board Member/Former President Michael St. Germain for all the time and effort he put into  this project!  We are planning on more improvements down the road with the goal of providing a premier softball facility for our players and families.

  The Hooksett Girls Softball League is offering FREE softball clinics for any player currently registered with the HGSL that will be playing Majors or Seniors HGSL ball in the spring of 2020.  That is players born from 2003 – 2008. 

  The clinics will be on lower Donati field and run for four weeks on Mondays from 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm September 9th, 16th 23rd and 30th.

  The clinics will focus on general softball skills utilizing drills and workouts.  Players should come prepared with their equipment (glove, cleats, fielder’s mask, etc...).  Players should also bring a water bottle.   As always with HGSL activites, fielder’s masks are required when participating in an activity where a softball is being thrown to or hit to a player. 

   We are fortunate in that the clinics will be run by Coach Freddy Rivera who has over 16 years of softball coaching experience.  Coach Rivera has coached at the local youth level up to the high school level and has coached softball players of all different skill levels to include local recreation level softball and USA Softball. 

    To take advantage of this great opportunity for some quality softball training FREE of charge, please e-mail hooksettsoftball@gmail.com.  If you want to sign up your daughter, but are concerned that she may not be able to make every session, that is ok, just let us know in your e-mail.

Best,

HGSL

HGSL Summer Newsletter

Summer 2019

Hooksett Girls Softball League Newsletter

 

Hello Hooksett Softball,

Where did the summer go?  It feels like we just ended the season and had our awards night!  Well, we hope that all of the girls and their families had a great summer!  We also wish them well during this upcoming school year.

Cap Area Fall Ball Offering

Registration for Cap Area Fall Ball is now open.  They are having AAA and Majors Divisions this fall and you should have received an HGSL email with the particulars.  If for some reason you did not, please let us know.  Fall ball allows the girls to get some additional practice and playing time so it is an asset to their development and it is a lot of fun!

HGSL Fall Lessons

Great News!  We were able to secure the Town Hall Gym on Tuesday evenings again this year, which allows us to coordinate some indoor softball lessons/clinics during the fall, winter and early spring. 

Like last year, we are working on setting up fall pitching lessons and there will be more forthcoming on this.   We are also exploring other possibilities to include catching lessons so stay tuned…

When we do open up the registration for fall pitching and maybe catching lessons, we would really love to see some 2020 AAA players (2009 and 2010 DOBs) coming out.  These are specialized positions and the lessons are a huge asset especially to players moving up to AAA. 

Board Meeting

The next HGSL board meeting will be Tuesday August 27th  7:00 pm at the Library.  All are welcome to attend.
