Softball is a club sport for middle schools in Sumner County. This means it is not sponsored by the school and does not use Shafer in the name. It is Gallatin Middle School which combines our students with Rucker-Stewart's students. 

Softball is open to all 6th, 7th, and 8th grade girls at both Shafer and Rucker-Stewart, as well as 5th grade girls at any Elementary School in Gallatin. Home-Schooled girls zoned for these schools are also eligible. All interested students must take part in a two-day tryout in August. 

The Gallatin Middle School Softball Team practices during September & October during the Fall, then resumes practice in January when schools are back in session. Games begin in early February and run through Late March/Early April.
