Girls youth softball in Hampshire County Meeting

As most of you know, the opportunity for girls softball in Hampshire County is limited. We have an opportunity to start girls softball in Hampshire County with the assistance of Frankfort Youth Softball. G.T. Parsons will be hosting a meeting Friday, Nov. 8th at 7 p.m. at the Romney Fire Company. We need to see the interest before we can move forward with this for Spring 2020. Representatives from Frankfort Youth Softball will be at the meeting to answer questions. This is a great opportunity for the girls of Hampshire County to be able to start at a young age and play competitive softball from the age of 4 to 17. This will be a way to start something dedicated to the growth and development of girls softball in Hampshire County.
