Kaweah Softball had existed since 2016, and was in the process of merging with another league to form Sequoia Softball. Unfortunately that merger did not go through, but with the program assessment involved in such an effort we found ways to build upon our best practices, and modify and improve other areas. With our ultimate goal of developing every player to their highest potential while ensuring that the girls enjoy playing the game of softball. With that spirit, and due to the fact that we had already made all the operational and name changes the new league will continue to operate under the name of Sequoia Softball. The program will be affiliated with Little League International.
The Sequoia Softball will serve all girls residing or attending school in Visalia. The new entity is operated by a board of directors that resulted from the merger of the two existing boards. The league will be dedicated to providing a positive youth softball experience for all skill levels, encompassing both those seeking recreational and competitive opportunities.
Sequoia Softball will continue to provide playing meaningful opportunities for all age-groups while ensuring that the programs targeting younger players ages 4-7 not only have a solid fundamental softball experience but that the girls are having fun.
Registration will be launched for 2021 season for girls aged 4-12. The league also has access to the T-Mobile Little League Call Up Grant a program dedicated to directly assist families in need by covering registration costs associated with the 2021 season. We encourage anyone facing a financial hardship to apply as soon as possible as the funds in this scholarship program are limited and provided on a first-come, first-serve basis.
