Parent Involvement

Parents can play many roles in sport: current or former athlete, coach, fan, motivator, role model or critic. A few studies have shown that family members may influence an athlete’s involvement and achievement in sport more than coaches. Parents also are the first and most critical agents at socializing sports.

Hickory Fountain Green Rec Softball

Thank you for your interest in the Hickory Girls Softball program!

Offered by the Hickory-Fountain Green Recreation Council in cooperation
with Harford County Parks and Recreation, Hickory is located in the center of the County just minutes north of Bel Air. The program uses facilities at Hickory Park, Hickory and Fountain Green Elementary Schools, C. Milton Wright High School, and Tucker Field.

Ages 4-6 and 7-8 participate in a clinic atmosphere where they are taught basic skills and then apply that in game situations. Ages 9-10, 11-13, and 14-18 compete in a local “in-house” fastpitch” league. Girls are given the opportunity to learn the sport and develop their skills, but most importantly, they experience fun, good sportsmanship, and healthy competition.
