Softball Northwest Launching in 2023!
For over 25 years, Baseball Northwest has come alongside baseball players all over the Northwest in their pursuit to play baseball at the next level. In 2023, we are now adding softball.
Softball Northwest launches this year with a goal of supporting and promoting high school softball players in their efforts to get recruited. Our desire is to supplement the high school and club coach's role and provide an additional resource to aid the players through the recruiting process.
Our Softball Northwest website is currently under development but we encourage you to check out www.baseballnorthwest.com as the Softball site will be very similar in design and function.
Softball Northwest is hosting 1-day Prospect Evaluation Camps where we capture verified measurable data and edited recruiting video that are both useful tools in a player's recruiting journey. These videos and data then get uploaded to your Softball Northwest player profile which becomes a "resume" of your softball skills and development to send to college coaches.
We are working on adding confirmed Prospect Evaluation Camp dates to our summer schedule which will be released when the website goes live.
