Originally formed in 1968, Clairemont Bobby Sox served the girls of Clairemont and surrounding communities. The Bobby Sox organization was instrumental in promoting girls sports at a time when boy’s leagues received most of the attention.
In 2003, after 34 successful seasons as a Bobby Sox league, we dissolved and reformed as Clairemont Girls Fastpitch, an Amateur Softball Association of America (ASA) affiliated league. While our All-Star and travel teams add emphasis on competitiveness, the Spring season accepts players of all skill levels. If you’re new, we can teach you to be good, and if you’re good, we can help you be great!
The main tenets of Bobby Sox were Friendship, Sportsmanship, Citizenship, Leadership and Scholarship. Those characteristics are still emphasized by our league today, and are celebrated with the Kyrstin Gemar Five Ship Award, awarded to one player from each team that best represents the five ‘ships.
Clairemont Girls Fastpitch decided to retain these five important tenets of good character. Every season one girl from each team is selected as best reflecting the five “ships.” The awardee is presented with a Five Ship trophy in honor of her selection.
If you are looking for a fun activity where your daughter will make great friends and you’re interested in having her play softball at Clairemont Girls Fastpitch we’d love to hear from you!
