Welcome

Miss Shen Old Logo

The Shenendehowa Miss Softball America program was founded in 1973 by a small group of parents who wanted their daughters to have the opportunity to participate in organized sports. The first summer, 135 girls, ages 9 through 15, participated in the program. The second and third seasons saw participation rise to 240 girls and 280 girls, respectively. Teams were coached and managed by parents. Games were played on the school fields and occasionally on the fields at Sherwood Forest, or Country Knolls.

In 1976, the league dropped the national affiliation with Miss Softball America and joined the Hudson Mohawk Girls Softball Association as Miss Shen Softball. Games were played with teams from Clifton Park, Cambridge, Miss_Shen_logoSchuylerville, Greenwich, Colonie, Saratoga, Cohoes and Brunswick. In 1988, Miss Shen was proud to open our own complex of fields.

The Miss Shen Softball league is governed by a Board of Directors. Past board members have paved the way for all of us at Miss Shen so that we may enjoy an inclusive league, fun environment, and top-notch playing fields. Thank you to our league presidents for their leadership. Today, we have over 700 girls, ages 4 through 17, registered to play and we rely on the participation of many parent volunteers.

We offer our girls opportunities to learn more aspects of the game through optional clinics and camps. The popular winter pitching clinic, which takes place from December to March, has been offered for many years. We also hold an annual catcher’s clinic and other clinics throughout the year.

Our recreation program encourages a have-fun attitude where girls can learn and participate in the game of softball.

The girls who play in the travel program enjoy more competitive play against local area teams and participation in Local, State and National tournaments. The travel program adheres to ASA rules.

We are proud of our history and look forward to our future!
