Softball Playing in NYC High School

Updated Tuesday May 22, 2018 by Downtown Little League.

Our Downtown Little League Softball Division has grown from under 40 girls in 2010 to currently over 200 girls this season. With 2 NY State Little League Championships in 2014, and with DLL softball players earning accolades throughout High School Teams, DLL Softball has become one of the preeminent Little League Softball Division in all of New York City. If your daughter(s) choose to play softball in High School, it is very likely she will be one of the most skilled and knowledgeable on that High School Team.
Parents of DLL High School Players can't emphasize enough the benefits of playing competitive team sports in High School. It can be extremely valuable to your daughter's High School experience on many levels beyond the obvious social and fitness aspects. Moreover, many studies show that girls playing competitive team sports in High School can have a far-reaching impact into college and work life.
The problem for middle school athletes in NYC, both male and certainly female, is that there is little information available regarding the breadth of competitive athletic opportunities in High School.  If your daughter(s) has an interest in competitive athletics in High School. DLL Softball recommends strongly that exploration into High School Divisions and Teams is part of your daughter's and your process in choosing a High School.
To that end, DLL Softball players, parents and coaches would like to be a resource by shedding some light on the structure of Public, Private and Catholic High School Competitive Team Sports, and helping to provide access to more information about the High School Opportunities.  
Following is a current list of High Schools our current DLL players are attending. If you would like to reach out to find out more information from the player, parent and possibly even the coach of these High School teams, please let us know. We would be happy to provide more information.  In addition, many of our DLL High School Softball players participate in other sports besides softball such as soccer, volleyball and basketball. Accordingly, it is likely they can provide inside information on other sports at their schools.
