Golden Valley Girls Softball was founded in 1974. Its purpose is to teach girls the fundamentals of softball, to instill the ideals of good sportsmanship, to promote physical and mental development, and to promote good character and citizenship.
The season starts with a skills assessment followed by the coaches’ draft to even the competitive nature of teams (Approximately 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 softball experience. The league's Junior Division is for girls who have completed 3rd - 6th grades and the Senior Division is for 7th - 12th graders. The season begins in mid-May and ends in mid- to late-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.
All games and league tournaments are played in Golden Valley in partnership with the Golden Valley Parks and Rec, however we welcome girls from ALL COMMUNITIES and we have players from many different cities and schools districts, public and private. All participants receive a uniform T-shirt and all girls play in each game.
