What do you get when you get a group of 4 and 5 year old girls who love Elsa from the Disney movie ‘Frozen’ to play together on a softball team? Cute and confident athletes.  Photographer and mom of the catcher Betsy Gregory, took these pictures at the end of the season.

“[Let go] Of the idea that girls can’t be tough or look mean. That they should be in dance class, not on the softball field. That princesses can’t do anything princes can do, and have a blast doing it.”

The girls didn’t have the best season on paper but they had a blast.  When they’re this young, isn’t that what it’s all about? Create a safe and fun environment for them to play sports and they will want to continue to play, even when they aren’t necessarily winning.

How have you encouraged your young girl(s) to play a sport?
