Weston Recreational Fastpitch Independence
I am the parent of a daughter who has played Recreational Fastpitch Softball in Weston with the Weston Softball Association.
I believe that:
- Fastptich Softball is a sport completely separate from baseball with its own rules, history and culture.
- Recreational Fastptich Softball, and sports in general, are a great avenue for girls to have fun, make friends and learn important life lessons.
- The Weston Softball Association has done an outstanding job creating a fun, competitive, inclusive and educational Recreational Fastptich Softball program for the girls of Weston and surrounding communities.
- The parents, coaches and volunteers associated with the Weston Softball Association are what make the program great.
- The Weston Softball Association, operating in association with the Weston Athletic League, has been starved of the resources, funds, support and field space that my daughter and her teammates are entitled to receive.
- The organizers, parents, coaches and volunteers of the Weston Softball Association have tried, unsuccessfully for years, to receive equal treatment operating in association with the Weston Athletic League (and their predecessor, the Weston Area Little League).
- Without support, funds, resources and adequate field space, Recreational Fastptich Softball in Weston will no longer be a viable sporting option for the girls of Weston and surrounding communities.
- It is in the best interest of my daughter, her teammates and every daughter of Weston and the surrounding communities to support the Weston Softball Association in its essential quest to separate itself from the Weston Athletic League and obtain an official seat on the Weston Sports Alliance allowing the girls of Weston to finally receive the equal treatment to which they are entitled.
Given all the above, I completely support the Weston Softball Association in its mission to (i) separate from the Weston Athletic League, (ii) receive a seat on the Weston Sports Alliance and (iii) obtain the equal treatment my daughter is entitled to receive.
