Welcome to Prior Lake Softball

Prior Lake Softball is dedicated to providing the chance for school aged girls in Prior Lake to play Softball. We have a program and age level for anyone grades Pre-K to 12th. Prior Lake Softball starts with the In-House program at Pre-K and continues all the way through 12th grade for girls looking for a fun less competitive experience. For those girls looking for more competition we offer a Travel Fastpitch program beginning at 8U. Please see each programs specific page to learn more about the program. The In-House page can be found here and the Fastpitch Travel page can be found here.

On February 7 we held an informational meeting for parents who are considering their softball options. The following presentation will answer your questions about both our programs, In-House and Travel Fastpitch.

Dear Parents & Players

Softball is continuously looking for ways to add to the experience and life lessons this wonderful game provides.  We have had success over the years but are always looking for ways to improve.  Please note that your feedback helps shape the direction of the program and volunteers move it forward.

Continuing into this season you will see new committee members focused on the goal to better align our program with other P.L.A.Y. sports, the high school program, our PCA commitment, and further improving our Traveling and In-House programs.  We also look forward to increased involvement of coaches and community through a committee structure.

We strive to afford opportunities to develop and enhance softball skills to compete at all levels. Our athletes are encouraged to develop confidence, high self-esteem, and respect for the game and officials to better support their future roles as quality citizens.
