ABGSL provides fun recreational softball for girls in grades K-9. Games are played at various locations in Albany and Berkeley CA. The league's primary recreational season runs March through June, and also offers limited competitive and recreational programs at other times of the year. Founded in 1981, ABGSL is a non-profit, all volunteer league that offers a positive softball experience for any girl that wants to play.
Fall Clinics updates:
Our fall clinics are just around the corner. We are again this year offering clinics for players, pitchers and parents.
These clinics are free and are open to ABGSL players from last season as well as any other interested girls in grades K to 9. Pitching clinics are open to any girl with an interest in pitching, regardless of experience. Parent clinics are open to adults regardless of experience -- we particularly encourage adults who have little or no experience to participate. Coach Bo will be leading be leading the skills and parents clinics, and Jen Deering will be leading the pitching clinics.
Clinic Dates: all fall clinics will be held on Sundays in Codornices Park:
Clinic Times: clinic times are based on grade level or pitching experience:
Players should come to the clinic for the division they're going to be in next Spring, not the division they were in last season.
Players should dress in clothes that allow movement, bring their gloves, cleats and water. (We'll have a limited number of gloves available for new players to borrow.)
Parent Clinics will be held during player clinics so that parents can arrive with their daughters and stick around and have some fun too. Parent clinics will begin shortly after player clinics begin and will last approximately 30-40 minutes. Please bring a glove if you have one.
Parent clinics will have a different theme at each clinic:
Parents should dress comfortably and bring gloves if they have them. (We'll have some extras on hand.)
Pitching Clinics are aimed at introducing and improving one of the most important, challenging, and fun skills in softball. Players interested in learning about pitching but with limited or no experience should attend the 2pm session. Players with prior pitching experience and competence should attend the 4pm session. All pitchers must supply their own catcher at pitching clinics, preferably a parent.
Invite a friend and show them how much fun we have! Also, if you are able and inclined, please forward or post this information to your community mailing lists.
We hope to see you this fall!
