In recent years, AWLL has not been able to field a girls softball team at any division. If your daughter is interested in softball, please register with AWLL. Register for the age appropriate baseball division and email us at anchoragewest@gmail that you registered for softball. If we do not have enough girls interested in softball for a team, we have sharing agreements with another league so your daughter can play softball. Your daughter is also strongly encouraged to play baseball in any division. Girls play baseball in every division in Anchorage West Little League.
