Softball program begins

In the past, T-ball and softball programs were run by the school district. With the closure of the district, it has been left to area parents and the City to keep the program going and Woden’s softball field maintained.

For summer 2013, parents put together two leagues. 17 players participated in the T-ball program and 13 players signed up for softball. The City of Woden takes care of the field.
