WELCOME TO LAKE KEOWEE SENIOR SOFTBALL
You’ve joined a group of individuals who enjoy the sport of softball, camaraderie, and fellowships with other like-minded individuals. We play to win. We play to get better. We play because we are still able to do so.
We play in the Clayton Senior Softball League.
There are currently three teams (see each team page for team objectives):
1. Lakers – Players are at least 58 years old (by December of the season year)
2. Eagles – Players are at least 68 years old (by December of season year)
3. Zenith – Players who have access to additional playing time in non-league games
Below are some items you should know as you prepare to play in these senior softball leagues.
Practices in March are focused on renewing the basics of fielding and hitting. All three teams are on the field(s) simultaneously. Separate team-specific practices for fielding assignments and the like are held at the teams’ discretion and organized by the respective coaches.
Scrimmages are open to individuals who are >50 years old.
