Mission

The Mission of the Ambler Sports Academy Team is to provide a nurturing, healthy, fun and competitive environment for girls wishing to develop their softball skills and enjoy the game. We emphasize skill development through fundamental instruction. The goal of our team is to compete in our respective age division (18B), and to facilitate opportunities for our players to grow in the sport.

Why Play 18U?

The 18U level provides many positives to  players, especially younger players aging out of 16U. It allows players to grow in the sport and stay with the same team for a few years.  Also, it is a great way to prepare for high school seasons. 

What is a Boilermaker? 

Ambler may not have existed without the Ambler Boiler House. In 1881 the Keasbey & Mattison Company brought their manufacturing business to to the area. It helped enhance the already booming farming and industrial community. Keasbey & Mattison made many contributions to create the backbone of Ambler such as street electric, the water tower, opera house and the library. 

A Boilermaker represents the blue collar worker, who works tirelessly at their craft and makes an impact through their work ethic and skill set. In following our mission, we want to instill a strong work ethic in our players, who are dedicated to growing in the game. Additionally, leaving a legacy behind that others would want to follow.
