About the New Hampshire Comets

The New Hampshire Comets is an independent softball organization, based in Concord, New Hampshire, whose primary purpose is to provide a supportive environment for female athletes to improve their softball skills, and participate in quality tournament play. 2020 will be our 22nd year of existence. We typically field competitive USA softball teams at the 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U, 18U, and 18+ levels. 

We create teams that can compete at a high level, made up of players from the greater Concord area, surrounding towns, and all over New England. We charter USA, ASA, NSA, and PONY as A-level select/travel teams, and play 25-40 games primarily in June and July tournaments each year.

If you wish to be part of an organization whose primary purpose is to provide high level coaching to improve your skills, play competitive USA softball, and HAVE FUN, then you have found what you’re looking for!

Thank you!

Thank you to LeClair Builders and Brochu Nurseries for their time and effort to prepare the grounds and landscape so we could install three new pitching mounds at Gary Dillon Field. This project has helped to improve the appearance of the park and will help girls of all ages to become better at pitchers and catchers.
