Thanks again to ALL for your Efforts to get this League going on very short notice


Please also keep in mind that we will have "Mandatory" Scheduling meetings the week of February 6th

Age groups will be required to meet with ALL teams in that age group present to Schedule regular season games

These meetings will be attended by a GGSL board member to Coordinate the scheduling efforts.

Teams will be expected to have dates and times that they can Host games at their Parks

Each team will be given opportunities to schedule home games and then "agree" to travel to local Away games


At this scheduling meeting we intend to have the Tournament schedules and we will expect the teams to pay the

$25 GGSL registration fee and the $240 per team Opening Tournament fee

Please bring 2 checks as the

$25 check will be made payable to GGSL

and the

$240 Tournament fee will be made payable to the Host travel association, or team, or Park = TBD

Thanks again to Everyone for your patience, dedication and support to get this League and this Tournament going.

GGSL "Mission Statement"

The Greater Gwinnett Softball League’spurpose is to serve Girl’s Travel Softball in and around GwinnettCounty, providing local venues to reduce those expensive and lengthytrips out of town.


Weare made up of “A” and“B” Level teams and share a common goal ofpreparing our teams to compete at a high level in the many softballQualifiers and Tournaments.  Because we are local, we have the addedbenefit of providing much needed early season tune-up games at arelatively inexpensive cost.


Wewant to emphasize playing softball and favor many weekend "mini"tournaments (Saturday and/or Sunday) at various parks in GwinnettCounty.  In addition, we want to facilitate games on weeknights forthose teams who prefer that option.  In either case, each individualteam will make their own determination as to how many games they willplay.


While we do not prohibit awards, trophies,etc., our emphasis is to play ball, holding individual team cost to a minimum.


Our interest right now is the Spring and Summer, however, we will offer an option for the fall.


We do not require teams toregister with any national association; however, all teams must provideproof of insurance.  In that regard, it is sometimes easier to join anational association just for the benefit of the insurance.
