Middle School Softball
With an experienced, veteran coaching staff, Thornton Academy softball is a strong program that develops players' skills, teamwork, and play-making abilities. An annual trip to Florida in the spring for training pushes players to improve and helps the team bond together as one. High school softball plays seven inning games.
Recently, the TA teams have been successful, making the playoffs regularly.
Practices and home games are played at one of two softball fields on Thornton Academy's campus. All teams practice five days a week - practices are mandatory.
Tryouts for softball begins in mid-March. While the varsity team can be competitive, less experienced players are able to play on the other teams. In the off-season, some players join club teams to develop their skills.
