We are in the middle of fall, but it feels like winter, and we are already thinking about and planning for softball in 2021. GVGS will be back and better than ever next season!
But, we need some help as we have had some turnover in our Board. If you enjoy GVGS as much as we do, please consider joining the Board. You can see open positions on the About Us/Board page. Feel free to contact Lenny Segal, GVGS President, for more information about the open positions, time commitment, and any other questions. Being on the GVGS Board is a very rewarding experience and it's so much fun to see the joy it brings to so many during the season. Please consider joining! Thank you.
For the first time ever, GVGS now has an online store to purchase GVGS merchandise! Check out our newly redesigned merchandise page here. In addition to a link to our online store, you also can order merchandise that we still have in stock, some at a significant discount.
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 1973 and held its first season 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 12-13 girls per team). The girls play about 16-18 regular season games, usually two per week. There also are two weekend tournaments – mid-season and season-ending finale. These are really fun, family weekends! GVGS is a successful 45-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 are currently in 3rd - 6th grades and the Senior Division is for 7th - 12th graders. The season begins in mid-May (practices start in late April) and ends in late-July, with each team playing 16-18 games (usually two per week) and two weekend tournaments.
GVGS has been a premier softball league for over 45 years, having been founded in 1973. 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 slow-pitch 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. All girls play, regardless of skill level or past experience.
Yard signs promoting the league are available for pickup by contacting Karla Rose 612-840-2550. The signs are free, please help us get the word out about our tremendous league in your neighborhood.
