Jr Warriors Softball is a volunteer-led, not-for-profit organization. We offer girls (K-8th grade) recreational and competitive softball. The season begins at the end of April and will usually end by July 4th, weather permitting.

Jr Warriors Softball plays in the Crosstown League, playing teams across the north and northwest suburbs in their regular play schedule.  As a feeder program for  Maine West High School, the Jr. Warriors softball league serves to teach girls the basics and prepare them for the high school team.

Jr Warriors Softball is 100% run by volunteers from board members to managers, coaches, and team parents. We are always looking for additional volunteers. If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering, please fill out the contact form on this page or contact any board member or league commissioner. Without volunteers, this league would not exist.
