Dear Softball Families,
This past weekend the AVGS board of directors decided to cancel the balance of our spring season. It has become clear over the past couple weeks that while the world seems to be in the early stages of getting somewhat back to normal, there is no way that we would be able to provide our girls the softball experience they deserve in the upcoming month. I fully appreciate the weight of this loss to our community, and I deeply regret the impact it will have on our athletes.
Most of our player’s registration fees are spent in the first few weeks of each season; however, in hopes of providing some degree of financial compensation for this compromised spring, we will be offering our 8U, 10U, and 12U players either a $50 refund or a $75 credit for our 2020 Fall Ball season. A method of requesting your recompense will be sent out in the next few days.
In addition to the monetary consideration, we are also working on some efforts that might give our athletes back a little of what they have lost on the field. To offset some of this interrupted season, we are actively trying to extend our upcoming Fall Ball season on the front end with a targeted start date in July or early August. This could add a full month or more to the season. Also, for those players who were hoping to make an All Star team this season, we have decided to move forward with All Star team selection. This All Star season will obviously look very different than any we’ve had in the past, but we firmly believe that our athletes should be recognized for their hard work. There will be more details on this initiative distributed shortly.
On behalf of the Aliso Viejo Girls Softball board of directors, I want to thank you for your patience and support throughout difficult situation. I look forward to seeing you all at the fields in the near future.
Welcome to the Aliso Viejo Girls Softball (AVGS) League. AVGS is proud to be a part of the USA Softball Association.
We offer Spring, Fall and All-Star seasons to girls primarily from the cities of Aliso Viejo, Laguna Hills, Lake Forest, Laguna Beach, Dana Point, and surrounding communities in South Orange County in Southern California.
Girls 4-14, of all skill levels, are provided an exciting, enjoyable and memorable experience, while learning and developing excellent softball skills, gaining game knowledge and an increasing appreciation for the game of softball. We strive to teach positive life lessons, good sportsmanship, winning and losing with pride, dignity, and TEAMWORK.
AVGS is a wonderful place for girls to enjoy being athletic, meet new friends and grow their self-esteem. We have players from all over South Orange County ~ they come for the best softball experience around. We encourage our parents to be active in the league both on and off the field.
AVGS is a non-profit organization completely run by volunteer and sponsorship support and participation. Our mission is to provide every player in our league a fun, safe and skills-based environment to participate in and contribute to.
We are committed to teaching and growing our youth into team players who are challenged in their athletic ability both physically and mentally.
We are committed to encourage, promote and require good sportsmanship, good conduct and a strong commitment from every player, coach, manager and family member that participates in our league both on and off the field.
We are committed to building character and healthy friendships and to instill a lifestyle of service, discipline and positive attitudes that will be displayed not only in our league, but carried into our families, our schools and our community.
