Golden Valley Girls Softball was founded in 1974. Its purpose is to teach girls the fundamentals of softball; to instill in girls the ideals of good sportsmanship; to promote physical and mental development; and to promote good character and citizenship.
GVGS Softball - 2017
The season starts with a skills assessment followed by the coaches’ draft to even the competitive nature of teams (13 girls per team). The girls play about 18 regular season games, usually two per week. There are two tournaments – mid-season and season-ending finale. These are really fun, family weekends! GVGS is a successful 40-year-old league staffed by volunteer moms and dads.
GVGS is for girls interested in a fun, slowpitch league. The league's Junior Division is for girls who have completed 3rd - 6th grades and the Senior Division consists of 7th - 12th graders. The season lasts from mid-May to the end of July, with each team playing 16-18 games (usually two per week) and two weekend tournaments.
GVGS proudly celebrated it's 40th year in 2013. Our success is based on a philosophy of "the game is for the girls" and a focus on skills, fundamentals and fun. GVGS is recognized as one of the finest slowpitch leagues in Minnesota.
Participants are primarily (but not exclusively) from communities in the Hopkins or Robbinsdale School Districts. All games are played on Golden Valley diamonds in cooperation with Golden Valley Park & Recreation officials. All participants receive a T-shirt and play in each game.
