Chardon Softball League for Girls Deadline Approaching

The Chardon Softball League’s inaugural season is shaping up as a home run…even before spring arrives. The League has registered over 260 girls for its 2014 summer season with the enrollment deadline scheduled for March 31.

The Chardon Softball League is a charter member of the North Coast Softball League, formed with the passionate softball communities of Burton, Huntsburg, Kirtland, Leroy, Middlefield, West Geauga, and Concord.

Parents can register online before the deadline, or learn more about Chardon Softball online. The League is hosting two open, community-wide softball clinics for girls (ages 4-14) on March 23 in Chardon. The clinics will be organized by age. For more details, or to register for the free clinics, go to the website.


Chardon Softball League President Greg Jahnke is moved by the overwhelming and enthusiastic response in the Chardon area to the new organization.

“Our League is driven by doing what is best for our players, their parents, our volunteers and coaches, and the community,” Jahnke said. “We can clearly feel the excitement and see the fun that is building as we approach the start of the season. The girls and coaches have already been working hard this winter learning new skills and improving in every phase of the game. We’re ready to kick off a great season!”

The Chardon Softball League has been active during the cold and snowy winter, conducting hitting, pitching, and ground ball clinics for more than 500 participants since November.

Drills and skill tutorials were conducted for the girls, as well as a parent/coach volunteer clinic to augment their softball coaching skills. Respected coaches, such as Max McCrone (Chardon High School varsity softball head coach) have been involved with the clinics. Individual skill lessons from the clinics are available on the Chardon Softball League’s YouTube channel.
