Dearest Softball Families,
Welcome to the 2021 season! Registration for Issaquah Fast Pitch Softball is now open! This season may look a little different with our new guidelines in place from the government but please be assured that the safety and health of our players and families are a priority. With government guidelines we plan on providing a fun and safe season not only for our players but for families as well.
My name is Jamie Svoboda, I am Issaquah Little League's Softball Commissioner. This will be my 4th year on the Issaquah Little League board. This year will mark my 11th season coaching softball. Our program exists because we have such wonderful volunteers who put in countless hours and who have a passion for the sport and kids.
Each year we continue to improve our program and have more girls playing softball than ever in Issaquah Little League history. With 3 A teams, 4 AA teams, 3 AAA teams, 3 Coast teams, 2 Majors team, 6 Junior players, 3 All Star teams, 4 Summer Ball teams and 1 Coast Fall Ball has made us the largest softball league in Western Washington.
We have a fun year ahead of us and are planning on having tournaments with our fellow D9 leagues. We will have skill development clinics FREE for registered players throughout the year. The clinics will focus on current softball methods of throwing, catching, hitting, pitching and running bases. Our skill clinics will be lead by the head coach and players from Bellevue College Softball team. We will also have a outdoor skills clinic hosted by the head coach of Issaquah High School in April, a Little League Day. In June at the end of our season, we will have Championship Day at Dodd Field and an All Star season for the competitive levels.
Skill Evaluations will take place on February 6th at Bellevue College for players going into AAA, Coast & Majors. Bellevue College and ILL are working together to provide a safe environment given Covid regulations. Skill Evaluations are helping us to determine the players levels that are compatible for each division. This provides a safe and balanced environment for the kids to learn and have fun.
We strive our best for our players to have fun, learn, be competitive and to love the game of Softball. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to email me at [email protected]
Here's to a fun and safe 2021 Season!Jamie Svoboda
