“The league is introducing some exciting new programs and partnerships, including becoming the ‘little sister league’ to UCLA Softball, the winning-est Women’s NCAA softball program in history,” said Glickman.



The partnership will kick off in late January with a full day clinic for Wilshire players hosted by UCLA’s head coach Kelly Inouye-Perez, assistant coaches Lisa Fernandez and Kirk Walker and members of the UCLA Softball team.

“Wilshire players will learn the mechanics of offense and defense, pitching and catching and mental training, and see a hitting demonstration by the Bruins,” said Glickman. “Most importantly, Wilshire girls will get to meet the UCLA players and start little sister/big sister relationships that will carry throughout the entire season,” he added.

The Wilshire Girls Softball spring season runs from early February through April, with practices held during the week and games every Saturday at Lemon Grove and Queen Anne parks.

An All-Star season follows for top players in each age group.
