Matthews Athletic & Recreation Association

MARA Softball offers a variety of different programs from athletes of all skill levels and experience. 

Recreational Softball
Open for everyone, new and experienced. We offer a wholesome experience for athletes ages 4-18 years old. There's two seasons, Fall and Spring. Fall starts in August, Spring starts in February. Each run about 3 and a half months long. 

Challenge Softball
Recreational Softball athletes will have the opportunity to try out for an IN SEASON All-Star Team. Tryouts are held shortly after the season begins. Athletes who make the challenge team will participate in 2-3 IN SEASON tournaments versus the other Charmeck Softball Challenge teams. 

Flex Softball 
This is a hybrid between recreational softball and travel softball. Every March we send out invites to players looking to participate in our Summer Travel Team. We take 10-14 girls interested in developing their skillset and playing in summer Top Gun and USSSA Travel Softball Circuits. We play 4-6 local tournaments throughout the summer. This is invite only, but if you are interested, just tell your coach or reach out to the commissioner. 

Travel Softball
Full season Travel Softball played through Top Gun and USSSA Softball Travel Circuits. Season runs from Feb-Nov and it is a 1 year commitment. Try outs are held Nov/Dec every year.
