Our teams range in ages from 10U to 18U. We have sign ups each April with tryouts the first weekend in May.
One of our main goals is to get as many girls playing as possible, we try to get a new 10U team started every year and will create additional teams when there are enough girls and coaching available.
The 2015 Eagle Pride entered the summer playing in their first year at the 12-U level. After working hard during the offseason, the girls were excited to keep things rolling where 2014 left off. We played in 8 tournaments finishing with a 25-12 record. The high point of the summer was capping off back-to-back state championships by winning the 2015 ASA 12U A State Championship. Additionally, we finished 1st in Bulldog I, MAYSA Triple Play I, and Summer Slam and finished second in the Chelmsford Fall Fest in Massachusetts. The girls also challenged themselves by playing in the Lowell, MA Memorial Weekend Tournament and the 14-U MAYSA Triple Play II. Probably the most memorable tournament for everyone was the ASA 12U Eastern National Championship tournament in Stratford, CT where the Eagle Pride finished tied for 17th with a 2-3 record. None of this would be possible without the tremendous support of our parents and families – thank you so much! See you in 2016!

We ended the season 7-12. We came in second in the Maysa triple play #2 and finished 3rd in the Coca Cola Classic. All the girls and parents had a great time and are looking forward to moving up to 14U next year.
The 12u Hurricanes finished the 2010 season with a 20-9 record. We played in six ASA tournaments, throughout Mass. and Maine, coming away with one championship (MAYSA tournament). 2 runners-up finish, one of which we finished runner-up in the 12u-a 2010 Maine ASA State tournament.
The girls voted to change the name of the team this year to Black Diamonds. In their words "We picked our name when we were like 2. Its time for a change." So where we are expecting to incorporate players from other teams this summer we figured that a new name would be appropriate.
We played in five tournaments with a total of 24 games. We were runners-up in States and look forward to being MAYSA's first 18U team next year.
Coached by Candice Parent, Jeremy Kaherl and Mike Godleski.
The 14U Thunder finished second at states in the “if” game against Capital Maniacs of Augusta (a/k/a “Cony”). At regionals in Woburn, Massachusetts they finished ninth out of twenty-something teams.
As far as the year went, we felt we had a rather successful year. We had some young ladies that found out what tournament softball was all about. We were a very inexperienced team that really showed what they were made of. The coaches and parents were extremely proud of the way our girls battled all year. We participated in 3 tournaments this season. The MAYSA Triple Play Tournament where we won our first game, a first for all of us. We then lost the next two but competed nicely. We then had 4-5 scrimmages with the Winslow Orange Crush. Those were coaching scrimmages and they were very helpful. Prior to participating in the State 12B tournament, I would like to thank Emily Leighton and Alei Collier for helping our team at practice. Emily pitched and Alei caught. The girls learned a lot under the guidance of these two young ladies. We headed for the states feeling confident. Our young ladies proved that with hard work and dedication, anything was possible. With 11 teams competing, we finished 4th with a 3-2 record. It was a most inspiring weekend for all of us. We then played in the Coca-Cola classic and fought Mother Nature again. We went 0-2 but played very well.
Thanks so much from all of us on Eclipse for the understanding and consideration that MAYSA showed us during the year. It’s a great organization to be a part of.
The Riptide, coached by Dana Michaud, advanced to the 12U level this year. They opted to compete in the A division and held up well against older teams. They compensated for their young pitching with strong hitting. They finished second at Brewer, second at the MAYSA tournament, and lost to Falmouth by only two to one in extra innings.
