PW PAL D-BACKS SUMMER TRAVEL SOFTBALL
Play Summer Travel Softball for PW PAL and be part of a competitive program that remembers that enjoying your Softball Summer Season is a way better experience than sitting in your car for hours every weekend driving to some remote tournament. We compete in local tournaments, overnight tournaments, play in 2 local competitive leagues, have weekly clinic style practices run by high level coaches, and do all this at the cost of a non profit program. We also offer the opportunity to play in destination tournaments in Puerto Rico, Cuba, or Italy depending on the year and age. Check specific Summer Schedules for opportunities and details.
There is a balance that needs to be struck between local intra-mural little leagues and full-blown cut-throat travel programs. There should be a place where competition and skill development is more important than winning any particular game. PW PAL is that place. At PW PAL we use only professional coaches to run our teams. As PW PAL Director, I insist on a culture that focuses on skill and player development. Learn to play the game the right way, instill a love for the sport into every player, bond with your teammates and then the fact that we also have great on-field success is truly secondary.
