Mission Statement

The mission of the Pepperell Girls Softball League is to facilitate a safe and positive learning environment in which the young ladies of Pepperell can learn about the sport of fast pitch softball. Through participation in youth softball, the girls will develop good work ethic and self-motivation.  Most importantly, the girls will learn about the importance of good sportsmanship and appreciate the value of teamwork.

Our goal is for the girls to have fun playing softball and hope the kids develop a love for the game.  Years from now, we hope they carry with them wonderful memories of their time in softball.
