Girls Fastpitch Softball Sponsored by American Legion Post 290 

American Legion Post 290 sponsors an affordable girls fastpitch travel softball program for young ladies similar to the American Legion baseball program that is offered to the young men. The age groups and number of teams fielded vary from year to year but typically involve age groups 8U - 18U. The main objectives of the program is to develope and progress young ladies in softball to compete at the competive level in tournaments and to ready the ladies for Middle School, High School and College Softball.

The Bombers participate in tournaments sanctioned by USSSA, NSA, ASA, USA Softball, and Softball Nation and will also include showcase events which provide visibility of players desiring to play at the collegiate level. The Bombers play at a competitive travel level in tournaments primarily in Virginia and Maryland.

Practices and scrimmages are held at the American Legion Post 290 Sports Complex. Winter Workouts are scheduled weekly at a local indoor facility.
