About GKWSA 

 The Greater Keene Women's Softball Association was founded in 1973. It was a Modified Fast Pitch league (one of the first in the nation). The League was started with 4 teams and grew almost every year as the interest in Modified Fast Pitch grew.

In 1989 GKWSA hosted the ASA Major Modified Pitch National Tournament. There was 36 teams from all over the country participating in the four day event. We had 4 local teams who participated. This was the first year that a GKWSA team won the Nationals, the winning team being Kulicks Market. In the early 90's the League grew to as many as 26 teams and has continued  to maintain 18-22 teams in recent years.

 

.

Values Statement

The Greater Keene Women’s Softball Association provides an opportunity for local women, ages 15 and up , to play 
recreational softball. We strive to foster a playing environment that embraces healthy competition for all skill levels, is enjoyable for its participants/fans and is free from any type of unsportsmanlike behavior. To this end, the GKWSA encourages all who are involved to respect themselves, each other and the game of softball while participating in our program.

 

 The league is divided into multiple divisions. There is a top division that is mostly composed of women who have competed in high school and college softball. We have a division that is composed of women who have competed in high school and possibly limited college softball. We also another division that is geared toward women who have limited or no softball competitive experience. The season runs from the middle of April thru the middle of August.

For more information contact Butch Morrison at gkwsa@outlook.com. or call 603-357-1123 .
