Voorhees Stars

Welcome To Voorhees Stars!

The Voorhees STARS is the premier girls' travel fastpitch softball program in Hunterdon County, N.J.  The program's inception was in 1996 and inspired by Voorhees High School graduate and two-time United States Olympic softball gold medal champion, Michele Smith. Our home fields are the Voorhees High School Varsity Field in Glen Gardner and Old Turnpike School in Tewksbury, N.J. Our primary focus is to promote softball and develop players within the Voorhees High School sending districts and neighboring towns.  In 2019 we are sponsoring teams at 12U, 14U and 18U levels.  Check back here often for more Voorhees STARS news and to see why everyone wants to be a STAR!  And yes, that's a real STARS player photo above, and yes she was safe!

We are always interested in your comments and suggestions.
