The Jersey Softball Association Launches The Corefocus Summer League
The Jersey Softball Association (JSA) has launched the Corefocus Summer League, with eight teams split across two divisions, all competing for a home run to the JSA Hall of Fame.
This year, the ‘CPA Global Pirates’, ‘Jacksons Falcons’, ‘JSA Niners’ and ‘dms Jersey Flyers’ will be competing in division one, while the ‘Corefocus Cubs’, ‘Trinity Tyres Phoenix’, ‘MotorMall Eagles’ and ‘JSA Dev Team’ will battle it out in division two.
First founded in 1993, the Jersey Softball Association has been organising softball games in the Island for the last twenty years. The aim of softball is to score more runs that the other team by batting a ball into play and running around the bases, touching each one in succession. Softball is also one of the few sports with teams made up of both men and women playing as equals.
Matt van Sanden, Managing Director, Corefocus, says:
‘It’s been our pleasure to support the Jersey Softball Association for the past nine years. They provide a great service to the local sporting community and softball is such a great inclusive team building sport and just about anyone can take part. It’s so great to see so many people getting involved this year and we can’t wait to see the Corefocus Cubs show off their skills!’
Lauren Glynn, President of Jersey Softball Association, says:
‘We have all been eagerly awaiting this year’s Corefocus Summer League and looking forward to another season of fun, yet competitive, slow-pitch co-ed softball and also, hopefully, a good dose of sunshine!
Sponsorship is critical to the ongoing development of Jersey softball and we are very appreciative to Corefocus for its ongoing sponsorship and support of our Summer League and the JSA as a whole. They have allowed us to grow year on year and invite new teams to the league. No pre-fitness is required and it’s a great way to meet people. We have even seen a few couples who have met at softball and later got married. We would like to invite anyone who wishes to try their hand at the sport to get in touch.’
