Registration is now open for the Port Washington Youth Activities (PYA) spring softball program.  PYA operates Port Washington’s largest softball program, serving children from kindergarten through seventh grade.  The season begins March 24 for second through sixth grades and April 7 for kindergarten and first grade.

PYA offers softball for all, from girls playing for the first time to more advanced players looking for a travel team experience.  From developmental-level instruction and beginner leagues to tryouts for competitive leagues and tournaments, girls from across Port Washington will spend time learning and being active with friends, both old and new.

Over the past 55 years, PYA’s softball program has grown to over 175 girls from Port Washington.  It is the only Little League-sanctioned softball program in town and thus adheres to the Little League safety plan.  All coaches undergo background checks.  Participation in the program includes both parent and professional softball coach instruction, professionally-led coaching clinics, and winter workouts featuring instruction from local college softball and the Schreiber high school varsity coaches and players.  PYA’s softball program is run out of the Lions Field complex – a unique, multi-diamond community amenity that is undergoing a material renovation and beautification project.

PYA’s softball program is coordinated by board director Cory Drewes, who played softball at the collegiate level at Yale University.

PYA is a nonprofit, Better Business Bureau Approved, charitable organization whose purpose is to promote the exemplary development of local youth through the participation in sport.  PYA teaches teamwork and individual responsibility in an atmosphere of respect and sportsmanship.  While PYA places emphasis on the development of sports skills, its primary mission is to develop character and an understanding of how participation in sporting events can prepare one for success in all endeavors.  To learn more about PYA and register for its softball program, please visit www.pyasports.org, or email [email protected] with questions.
