Grafton Girls Softball Inc.: Grafton Diamonds

Welcome to the Grafton Diamonds Home Page

The Grafton Diamonds is a division of Grafton Girls Softball that goes beyond our recreational program. Through the Diamonds, players have the opportunity to play in a more competitive environment during the summer months. The Grafton Diamonds compete at three age levels: 10U, 12U and U14. We usually field a tournament team and a TVL team at each level. The Diamonds program is open to all girls in grades 2 thru 9 who play in our rec league. Girls play for the Diamonds in addition to their rec league team. No player is turned away; we are committed to finding opportunities for every girl who wishes to play summer softball.

Tournament Teams - Tournaments teams play weekend tournaments during the months of June and July.  Most tournaments are within a one hour drive of Grafton.  Being part of a Grafton Diamonds tournament team is a large commitment for both players and parents.  Our tournament teams practice over the winter months at various indoor facilities.  Starting in April, the teams hold outdoor practices on Saturdays at Nelson until the rec season is over and then they move to two weeknights. Tournaments are played Fridays-Sundays. Teams may play anywhere from four tournaments (at the 10U level) to six tournaments per season (12U & 14U) each summer.

TVL Teams - The Grafton Diamonds TVL teams play in the Twin Valley League which is comprised of teams from towns throughout Central MA.Teams play two weeknight games per week for six weeks from mid-June (after school ends) thru July.  Home games are at Nelson and away games are usually within 15-45 minutes from Grafton. Starting in April, teams hold outdoor practices on Saturdays until rec season is over, and then they move to weeknights.  The TVL team is an excellent option for girls that want to start out in the Diamonds program, gain confidence while playing competitively, or that have other commitments on weekends.
