2021 Softball Super Stars
For the last few years, Kirkland American and Kirkland National Little Leagues have held post season games for both Divisions AAA and A. While this program has enjoyed popularity and we hope to run it again this season, the determination to do so will be entire driven by availability of fields and when the regular season ends in relation to the end of the school year.
Below is what the proposed program from last season and may need to be modified based on this season’s schedule:
In broad strokes, each league will assemble it’s own Super Stars team with equal representation of players and coaches from each of the Spring 2020 season at Divisions AAA and A. Teams may have up to two practices after June 1 at and before the games on June 13th. KNLL is hosting this year at Big Finn Hill and the full schedule is listed below. For more detailed information, please review our Super Stars FAQ.
The goals of this program are:
1. Provide girls with the same championship opportunities as the boys 2. Raise awareness of softball within the Kirkland community 3. Raise awareness of post season play among softball families 4. Demonstrate to girls that competitive games can also be fun!
The last goal is perhaps the most important and can only be achieved if all coaches, umpires, and parents are on board to promote and support this effort. For guidance or inspiration, please go to the Postive Coaching Alliance website to learn more.
