Maplewood-South Orange (MSO) Softball is a non-profit, volunteer organization which is committed to the promotion of girls’ softball within the towns of Maplewood and South Orange. We strive to develop great young women both on the softball field and in our communities. We aim to provide a strong foundation in the development of fast pitch softball and prepare the girls to play in a competitive environment while still having fun. We encourage players to be supportive of their teammates, be coachable, and be enthusiastic. We seek to provide a positive, challenging and rewarding experience for all players.
The Maplewood-South Orange (MSO) Softball program is open to all girls from Kindergarten to 8th grade who live in either Maplewood or South Orange. MSO Softball provides girls with an opportunity to play in either the town recreation softball program or travel softball program. In addition, MSO Softball provides educational and training opportunities for players, coaches and umpires.
