We will follow the same League structure that was changed with the 2019 Spring Season.
Our divisions: 6U (K and 1st grade), 8U (2nd and 3rd grade), 10U (4th and 5th grade) are based on grades instead of birthdate.We believe this will remove a lot of confusion and allow classmates to play in the same divisions.
We made a big change in our older division. In 2019 we introduced a new Middle School division encompassing 6th, 7th and 8th grade and it was a very competitive, well-rounded division.We had been considering this for several years.Our neighbors in Danvers added this five years ago and they’ve said it’s their strongest division with the best camaraderie.Our former senior division was 8th grade and all of high school, but in actuality we’ve only had a couple of freshman play in the last four years.We’re very excited about the new division and think it will allow us to have a large league with our most experienced players.
For players in kindergarten or 1st grade.Anyone that has previously played 1 year is eligible for the 8U division
8U (Instructional Div.)
For players in 2nd or 3rd grade.
For players in 4th or 5th grade.
Middle School Div
For players in 6th, 7th, or 8th grade.
We are always trying to improve the league. In past years we’ve added pre-season pitching and hitting clinics, and are hoping to continue our in-season clinics.
The BHS softball clinic dates have been confirmed! This series of clinics is beneficial for girls of all ages and skill levels. The drills focus on developing good fundamental softball skills in the areas of warm ups, agility, catching, throwing, fielding and hitting. The drills are both age and skill specific and are run by the Beverly High School varsity coaching staff and her teams. The cost is $20, which covers all 3 dates, and can be paid at the clinic by cash, check (made out to Beverly Girls Softball League) or Venmo @bgslpayment (Jamie Silvestri). Proceeds from this clinic benefit Beverly High Boosters.
