The Dutchess Divas

The Dutchess Divas Fastpitch Softball Program provides girls from across the Hudson Valley the opportunity to play softball at an elite level. We are dedicated to providing a highly competitive, fair, and fun environment for all players and their families.
The Divas program concentrates on preparing serious, elite players for their next level of play at the High School or Collegiate level. At every age group, the program is designed to focus and develop both the physical and mental skills necessary to understand and excel at every aspect of the game. A strong emphasis is placed on the basics and fundamentals of softball as well as the key aspects and proper mechanics of hitting, fielding, and throwing. Our program runs 10 months out of the year with each new season beginning in August.
We currently have teams at the 12U, 14U, 16U and 18U levels:
- The 16U and 18U teams travel throughout the New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania areas for tournaments.
- The 12U and 14U teams tend to play more local tournaments. As a program we believe that more emphasis needs to be placed on learning the physical and mental sides of the game at the younger levels which can be accomplished without traveling throughout the Northeast!
0ur girls work hard, play hard and are dedicated to our team and playing softball!
