Boys Softball


The Elm Middle School boys softball program features a single team that incorporates 6th, 7th and 8th graders. Practice begins in August, followed by a season that gets underway in early September and lasts until the end of the month.

The season culminates in a tournament that determines the Leyden-Norwood Athletic Conference (LNAC) champion.

Students from all three of our grade levels are eligible to try out. Prospective team members must submit a completed pre-participation physical exam form and a signed concussion information sheet if they want to play a fall sport.

Elm's home games are played at Elm Middle School, 7607 W. Cortland St., Elmwood Park. Regular-season games begin at 4 p.m. Directions to other LNAC schools are here.
