About Us

Shaler Area Slow Pitch Softball Club, Inc.

In 2004, Shaler Area was one of four schools to initiate a fall slow pitch softball program.  At that time four teams competed against one another in hopes of growing a league into a fall competitive club sport.  In 2014, the Shaler Area school board voted to promote slow pitch softball as a club sport within the district.   This past year over 45 teams competed at the junior high, junior varsity and varsity levels throughout the Pittsburgh region in a league known as the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Softball League (WPISL).

In our inaugural club season, Shaler Area fielded four teams in the WPISL.  Forty plus student/athletes were honored at our annual awards banquet.  The banquet will recognize those student/athletes for the their achievements on the field while keeping up with the academic standards of the Shaler Area School District.

In 2015 we took the steps necessary to grow our organization in hopes of providing additional opportunities for girls in grades 7 through 12 to represent their school.  Representing Shaler Area in a team atmosphere can provide a sense of honor and help develop young leaders for our future.

This is a very exciting time for Shaler Area Slow Pitch Softball and the future of our club.  Consider joining us to help make it a success.
