Important Dates for 2023 - SCGSL:
**This notice was sent out via email to all Community Coordinators on Saturday, February 11th**
As you know, we have always required teams to be registered with USA Softball in order to ensure everyone was covered by insurance.
However, we were recently made aware that USA Softball went to an all online registration for teams that must be completed by the coaches/coordinators, meaning we can't submit rosters the way we have in the past thru Dale and additionally they have increased the cost to $20 per coach and player registered (a $6 per person increase). They will also require coaches complete background checks through their system along with ACE and SafeSport certifications, all with additional costs associated along with a few hours of time.
As a Board, we felt this would put an increased time commitment onto volunteer coaches or coordinators to go onto yet another website to register and set up their team; as well as a significantly increased cost. With many communities having already started the registration process this would be an unbudgeted cost to many communities.
Change for 2023:
As you know, USA Softball costs were always a pass through cost for us, so our fees going forward will be reduced to reflect that change.
We still do have expenses such as the website, Championship Night expenses, board insurance, etc. So the fee to play in the SCGSL will be a flat $50 per team, paid at the time of online registration.
All other procedures still stand - this is the only significant change going into the 2023 season.
**Please remember, if your team plays weekend tournaments that require USA Softball proof of insurance, you will need to register with them yourself outside of SCGSL.
The South Central Girls Softball League was established in 1998. The purpose of our league is to promote competitive softball in support of local high school programs, therefore Teams are made up of players from the same school district. We will consider exceptions on a case-by-case basis if the player has no other SCGCSL or other traveling team opportunities. Those decisions are made each year by our Board of Directors.
The South Central Girls Softball League provides a structured league for teams to play in, but we are not involved in the formation of teams themselves other than the registration of the teams in the league, outlining the rules each team will play by, and recording schedules (as determined by the coaches) & standings on the website. Anyone interested in playing in the league should contact the coordinators in their local communities for that information.
We sponsor four age groups: U10, U12, U14 and High School (U16/U18). The teams in our softball league are registered as Class B (community based) by the Amateur Softball Association (ASA). League fees include your ASA registration, insurance for each player & coach and one dozen game balls.
New teams are always welcome! If you are interested in joining our league we encourage you to contact us with your questions
