When And Where?

The Women’s Softball Team at Elizabeth Lee recruits in the Spring for a season that lasts from late Spring to early Summer. Games are played in the evenings once or twice a week and family, friends, and the church community are encouraged to  attend games in support of our church.

What Else Do I Need To Know?

Anyone is welcome to join the softball team. Most years the team consists of some women who have played in high school or college and some women who have never played softball before in their lives. The women’s softball team is a ministry that is based on women bonding over sporting and exercise, so everyone is encouraged to participate.
