While we certainly are disappointed that we could not play today, we are very happy that we will still have a tournament! Our new, one day tournament is now posted (see tournaments, 2019 end of season). All teams will play at least two games on Sunday (weather permitting).
Thank you to all of you for your patience and flexibility. It's been quite the summer weather-wise, so why should our end of season tournament be any different?
Today's games for the End of Season Tournament are being CANCELED as is the Home Run Competition due to field conditions and additional storms in the area throughout the afternoon.
The tournament WILL take place tomorrow in a 1-day format with a 2-game guarantee for each team. We will still award 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place tournament trophies and a consolation champion as well (which is normal). We will update the game schedule this afternoon, so check the website later today. Coaches will be notified of their game times and they will let parents/players know which fields.
The Home Run Competition will take place on Thursday night, the 25th in conjunction with our traditional Senior night for our graduating 12th graders. Look for more information early in the week.
Thank you for being flexible as we navigate the changing weather as we try to keep everyone safe and dry.
This is the final week to sell the discount cards that we have been selling all season in an attempt to raise much needed funds for the league to replace equipment, upgrade our fields, improve our off-season and in-season training programs, and increase our scholarship funds.
Please make sure to return all proceeds and unsold cards to your coaches this week so they can be submitted and prizes awarded. The League will be charged for cards not returned, so please make sure to give the folders and cards to coaches.
Order your Holiday cards, Graduation cards or personalized gifts through GVGS's Shutterfly storefront and a portion of the purchase will be donated to support our league. Click the image or here to get there.
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.
