Downstate Rippers

Our organization has expanded beyond any of the founding members expectations in the past six years. We are excited by the enthusiasm and talent displayed by the players and the dedication displayed by the parents.

In the 2013-2014 season we will field 8U, 10U, 3 - 12U, 14U, 16U, and 18U teams. The Downstate Rippers Softball Organization is based out of Southern Illinois but we have had girls play for us all over the region from river to river and beyond - as far north as Centralia, IL and as far south as Murray, KY.

Good luck to all of our teams this year!
