Register Here for 2022 MVLAGS Spring Rec Softball!

 

MVLAGS Families,

 

We are excited to announce that our MVLAGS 2022 Spring Rec Softball registration is now open! Our Spring Rec Softball program is for all girls between the ages of 5-14 years old who are interested in returning to the softball field or learning the game for the first time. Practices start in early March (week of March 7th) and continue through middle of May (Closing day / end of season is May 21st)

 

As always, no experience is required, only a great attitude as we focus on skills and fun. Everyone plays!

 

MVLAGS offers both equipment lending and financial aid for those who need it. We believe that every girl should have the opportunity to play softball and be part of a team, so if you need anything at all, please send us an email at president@mvlags.org.

Registration closes on Sunday, January 16th so please register now!

Thanks,

MVLAGS Board of Directors

******************************************************

 

Volunteering - It takes a village! MVLAGS is a non-profit, entirely volunteer-run organization. Every family will be expected to volunteer to help our season run for these girls. We have roles as coaches, team managers, chaperones, scorekeepers, field crew, and more. Playing the game of fastpitch softball builds character and teaches young athletes life skills such as: teamwork, leadership, goal-setting and respect in a fun on-field experience that positively impacts their lives off-the-field as well. We know everyone is busy and time is at a premium, but without your help, we can’t keep girls softball going in our community.

 

Coaches Needed - We need coaches! Coaching your daughter’s team is a ton of fun and a great way to spend quality time with your daughter(s). MVLAGS is putting together both coaching clinics and practice plan resources for you to make it easier to be a softball coach. No previous coaching experience is needed. If interested, please indicate willingness to be a head or assistant coach in the registration form Any questions? Please simply email Mark at vp@mvlags.org or Brian president@mvlags.org.

 

Team Formation - A little bit about how age divisions & team formation works:

  • Everyone plays!

  • We aim to form teams within the following age divisions: 6U, 8U, 10U, 12U, and 14U

  • Teams at the 6U and 8U levels are formed based on players from the same schools & “buddy requests”

  • Evaluations are held (in mid January) for 10U/12U/14U players as teams are formed at those divisions to create balanced skill levels teams across the division

Registration Cost - Registration cost for 6U is $150, 8U registration is $200, and 10/12/14U registration is $250

Practice / Game Schedules - Team schedules are finalized once we form teams, which occurs in early Feb after our Jan evaluations.

  • 6U teams practice 1x / wk (usually Wed) plus they have a practice or game on Saturdays (see note below)

  • 8U-14U teams practice 2x / week (often either M/W or T/Th) plus they have a practice or game on Saturdays (see note below)

  • Note: For the first 3 weeks of the season, teams have a practice on Saturdays. Games begin on Saturday March 26th, our "Opening Day", and continue on Saturdays through the rest of the Spring season.

Spread the word! Help us reach out to families and girls at your school and in your neighborhood by sharing this info via Nextdoor groups, parent email groups, and other family networks. Most new players sign up to play softball because they hear about the league from a friend or neighbor! 

 

MVLAGS Online Shop - We are also excited to announce that we have launched an MVLAGS Online Shop where you can purchase t-shirts, sweatshirts, and more for you or your player!
