A local softball league will be playing with renewed inspiration after a landmark trip to Hawaii.
The North Shore Girls Softball League’s name was created from its North San Diego location. But over the summer, two softball teams played in Hawaii as part of the League’s 25-year anniversary celebration.
League President John Wood said the high level of play and the extraordinary hospitality shown to the players and families impressed him.
“We were touched by their aloha spirit and sense of ‘Ohana’ or family, which made for an incredibly heart-warming and memorable experience for the girls and their parents,” he said.
Two teams played in the Paradise Tournament on Oahu. The 10U team took 3rd place in their division. More importantly, Wood hopes to embody the same spirit of ‘Aloha’ in the 2014 recreational season.
“The trip reaffirmed our commitment to creating positive experiences for every player to build their physical and emotional confidence,” said Wood. “And through this great sport we can also bring parents and the community together.”
Registration is now open for the Spring Season. Those who register by Nov. 25 will be guaranteed a spot on a team. Evaluations for 10U, 12U and 14U players will be held on Jan. 11, 2014 and the Carmel Valley Recreational Center.
