The Village of Godfrey Parks & Recreation Department offers a Rookie Baseball Program for ages 3-5 and Youth Baseball/Softball program for ages 5-18. The youth program focuses on teaching the participants the necessary skills to make them achievers in the game. Our youth baseball and softball program seeks to teach participants the fundamentals of baseball and softball while instilling good sportsmanship values.
The Village of Godfrey will be participating in a new league called the Riverbend Baseball/Softball League for the 10U, 12U, 14U and High School age groups. These divisions will travel to surrounding communities including Alton, Brighton and Jerseyville.
