About BRW

BRW softball has evolved into a full-service softball organization dedicated to providing a framework for girls to make lifelong friends and learn valuable life lessons. We are one of the few Chicago-area softball organization that provide both recreational and travel (Blast) programs. This allows girls and their families to choose the level of commitment that fits their needs.

Our home field is the beautiful Borse Park in Willowbrook, Illinois. Our families come from the Willowbrook area, especially for our recreational league. For our travel program girls come from a wider radius of West and Southwest suburbs. All girls and families are welcome regardless of their ethinicity, financial status, or religion. Our league is built on sportsmanship, commitment, and teamwork. Our number one goal across all divisions is for the girls to develop skills and learn lessons that will help guide them through their life.The Board is always looking for volunteers to help keep the organization vibrant.
