GREENVILLE – The Greenville Girls Softball Association is preparing for its 44th season of softball in Greenville.
The community based organization was established in 1972 and now offers slow-pitch and fast-pitch softball to all Darke County girls ages 4-19. In 2015 more than 650 girls took part in summer leagues and the annual GGSA Fall Fast Pitch League in September.
Stebbins Field hosts many other events during the season with Lady Wave Stadium and Stebbins Field playing host to the Lady Wave softball high school and junior high teams each spring as well as all-star and travel/select tournaments, church and adult coed leagues, the annual youth fall fast pitch league and adult and youth charity tournaments.
Registration for the 2016 season is underway. Applications have been released through Greenville City Schools, local pre-schools, St. Mary’s School and Decolores Montessori School.
Leagues included during the summer season are slow pitch, T-ball League (ages 4-6), Munchkin League (7-8), Minor League (9-11), Junior League (12-14) and Senior League (15-19). Fast-pitch leagues are separated by grade and include third/fourth grade, fifth/sixth grade and seventh/eighth grade leagues.
GGSA is associated with the Cross County Fast Pitch League, which is a recreational travel league that includes teams in Darke, Miami, Preble and Montgomery counties. The league is a rec based instructional league and includes players of all skill sets. Fast pitch is offered to all Greenville girls and also girls outside of the Greenville School District who must be within a school district adjoining the Greenville district who are not offered to play in the Cross County Fast Pitch League that Greenville is currently a part of.
Players may play slow pitch and fast pitch if desired with no extra cost or fundraising. All leagues end the season with a league tournament except T-ball, who ends the season with the annual T-Ball Fun Day when all T-ball players are invited to take part in skills contests and all participants receive a season ending participation award.
GGSA sign-up days at Stebbins Field are scheduled for March 5, 12 and 19 from noon-2:30 p.m. each Saturday. Applications will be available and officers will be on duty to answer any questions.
