Overview

Overview

Taft varsity softball is a highly competitive program, which prides itself on developing outstanding players and more importantly, outstanding people. The softball program has enjoyed a tremendous surge of talent over the last few years as the team has become regarded amongst the top teams in New England. Recently, many players have gone on to enjoy successful and fulfilling collegiate careers at both the Division I and Division III levels. The regular season consists of about fifteen games in the Founders’ League as well as a number of independent games with other private schools. The softball field underwent renovations in 2016, adding a new brick backstop and clay infield.

The team's recent success is a product of skill development and fostering a positive environment. Practices and training are built around improving individual skills and developing communication. More important than the skills, the coaching staff is dedicated to creating a family amongst the players and coaches and having fun on and off the field. Part of that "family" philosophy is designed to instill confidence, determination, and kindness—characteristics that will make for successful young women. It is the hope of the coaching staff that the softball players at Taft will enjoy many successful seasons independent of the final tally of victories.
