 EUGENE LIGHTNING SOFTBALL is based in Eugene, Oregon and will have teams playing at the 10U, 12U, 14U and 16U levels in 2015. Lightning softball was formed to provide enthusiastic girls with an opportunity to grow as athletes and as young women through the challenge of playing competitive fastpitch softball.  We hope to combine personal commitment, self-discipline, teamwork, and fun into a winning attitude and positive self-image that will transcend softball and prove valuable to our players in every aspect of their lives.
