Flagstaff Girls Softball Little League

Flagstaff Girls Softball Little League is a competitive league for girls 4 to 16. Player age is determined as of January 1st each year.

Our Divisions include T-Softball for ages 4-6; "Minor B" (Coach Pitch) for ages 6-8; "Minor A" (Player Pitch) for ages 8-10*; Majors for ages 11-12*, Juniors for ages 13-14**, and Seniors for ages 15-16**.

Our season begins with practices on April 1 each year and lasts through, at latest, late June. Practice days and times are determined by individual coaches, and are typically 2-3/week until games start. After games start (Opening Day is usually the 3rd Saturday in April), practices are typically 1-2/week. Number of games each week varies by division. T-Softball and Minor B (coach pitch) divisions typically play 1-2 games/week and the season runs through late June. Minor A (player pitch) and Major divisions typically play 2-3 games each week and the season ends June 1. Seniors typically play 2-3 games each week and games begin after HS softball state playoffs end, with the season running to mid June.

Our lower divisions (10 and younger) are primarily developmental, teaching the fundamentals of the game of softball while also instilling a love of the game in a fun and supportive atmosphere. Our older divisions (11 and older) are more competitive in nature, but each year we have new players try out the game of softball AT ALL LEVELS. Coaches are supported by our League and are versed in developing the mature player as well as ensuring the first-time player develops the skills to progress in the game. Little League has minimum play requirements for EVERY game so no player is going to miss any game time.

FGSL also seeks to provide tournament team experience for our players aged 8-14 each year. Tournament teams are highly competitive and cannot be formed until June 1 and tournament play at the District level occurs late June-early July. State tournaments follow shortly after. Regional tournaments are held mid-late July. Players must opt in to be selected for teams in May and selection is done no earlier than June 1.

For player registration, we typically offer an early bird discount of $10 for ALL player registrations PRIOR to January 31. Our late fee of $25 goes into effect on February 24. We also have a multi-player discount for each family with 2 or more players. The first player is fullprice, and EVERY FGSL player in the household after that receives a $10 discount per player.

Be a part of an amazing spring and early summer experience for your daughter! Be a part of Flagstaff Girls Softball Little League!

If we are not able to begin our practices on April 1 (still unknown at this point!) we will need to push the season back. There is only so far back we can go, but we will make EVERY EFFORT to hold a competitive and fun season this year!

* Players may be eligible to "play up" or "play down" a division (ages 9 and up) based on player evaluation AND if division numbers permit.
**We anticipate having a Juniors AND a Seniors division this season, but we need substantial player registrations at these two age levels to carry teams through the season. We may combine divisions, and we may cancel a division based on total registered players. We hope to make that decision by mid-March at latest.
