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.
