Message from the Commissioner

My name is Shawn Swartz and I am the commissioner for Forks Township Softball.  For those of you whose daughter(s) are returning for another GREAT season, welcome back and for those whose daughter(s) are playing for the first time welcome! The goal of the program is to provide an instructive and positive experience for the girls while also teaching them teamwork and sportsmanship.  I believe we have one of the best programs in the area where we balance both the natural competitiveness of the sport with the fun and enjoyment that comes along with playing with their friends and making new ones.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at forks_softball@yahoo.com.  I am looking forward to another great season and please check the website periodically for more information before, during and after the season.  GO FORKS!!
