Berlin Bobcat Softball Program

The mission of the Berlin Bobcats is to develop young female softball players from the greater Berlin Area. Started more than a decade ago, the organization is made up of local volunteers and is a non-profit; totally self-funded organization. Over the years, the Bobcats have seen action in both ASA and the Babe Ruth Softball. To cover expenses, the Bobcats depend on user fees and fund raising efforts.

Currently there are four age groups within the organization. The brackets within these age groups are: 10 & under, 12 & under, 14 & under, and 16 & under. Normally each team is made up of 12 to 16 girls. In a typical season, the teams will play between 15 and 25 games. Each team also usually competes in two tournaments during the spring and summer.

As the girls progress through the Bobcats organization, the life lessons that they learn along the way extend way beyond the foul lines and the fences.
