Dear Girls with Game,
Don’t be afraid to dream big.
In fact, I DARE YOU to dream big, as big as you can.
There is nothing in this world that can stop a fierce girl that is willing to do whatever it takes to follow her dreams. Allow those dreams to guide you throughout your journey. Never be afraid to be yourself, authentically, all the time, and surround yourself with others that lift you up.
Be a good teammate, always.
Throughout the course of your life, you will forget all the wins and losses, but you will never forget how your teammates made you feel.
Lastly, enjoy the journey and stay present in the moment.
Now, go chase those dreams!
Ashlea Miller, Little League® Director of Softball Development
