New Announcement as of 6/7- Summer Rec Softball Season

PGSL Families,

          You should be hearing from your summer coach soon. Due to coach availability and player count some teams were reshuffled. Placement on a team was dependent on positive confirmation with your spring coach. If you don't hear from a coach soon please reach out to PGSL Player Agent.

Andrea Lawless at playeragent@pgsl.org

We are ready to kick off summer 2020 softball this

Saturday, June 13!


New Announcement as of 6/3- Updated Information & Summer Softball Season

Hello PGSL Members,

      We hope everyone is continuing to do well, staying healthy and safe. We wanted to share some updated information regarding the progress of getting our girls safely onto the field.

We are expecting to have a summer season in place of our spring season. We are looking at early June through July(maybe a little of August.) We do plan to start Winter ball as scheduled.

Currently, we are waiting on approval from the Governor, which is expected soon. All state, county, city and USA Softball guidelines will be followed.

The 1st phase will be practices only, with stable teams of no more than 12 on a field. Then possibly some type of league play, (scrimmages, sandlot ball, combo'd teams.) As of right now, all stars play between leagues and tournaments are most likely not happening this summer. We will follow all local and state guidelines.

For this summer, our intent is to keep 2020 rec teams together. Coaches should have reached out regarding your players' availability to play summer; please answer them in a timely manner. We are working with coaches who will not be returning to find a replacement for their team if possible. If not possible, we will absorb those teams into others, keeping as many players together as possible and under the 12 player cap.

Safety protocols will be in place based on guidance from the county health department. Below is a draft safety protocols from County Supervisor Gaspar. Our PGSL specific protocols are being worked on and will be released soon.

Please follow- up with your coach at the earliest convenience so we can confirm players and teams.

If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to

Andrea Lawless, playeragent@pgsl.org

Thank you,

Rich Sotelo

PGSL League President

PGSL Opening Day 2020

Big Thank you to PGSL Sponsors, Families & Players who all helped make Opening Day a huge success. It's going to be a great Spring Season.

Let's Play Ball!!


Poway Girls Softball League (PGSL) is a non-profit organization operated completely by volunteers and is registered with the Amateur Softball Association (ASA), the preeminent softball organization in America, as a Class "B" league in District 31 of Southern California Region 14.   PGSL was founded in 1967 to provide an opportunity for girls ages 5 through 18 to play fastpitch softball in Poway, California (located in northeastern San Diego County).  PGSL funds itself entirely from registration fees (among the lowest in San Diego County), community sponsorships, and snack shack sales.   PGSL supplies girls everything they need to play softball except shoes and a glove.   We waive fees for those girls needing financial assistance(application required) - no girl is ever excluded due to financial concerns.

At PGSL we offer a supportive, inspiring environment where the emphasis is on ensuring the girls enjoy their experience no matter their softball experience level.   Girls new to softball are provided extensive instruction and skill development.   Those girls more serious about softball are provided the opportunity to discover their full potential through competitive programs that PGSL offers.

Every activity in the league is focused on:

  • building self-confidence
  • promoting good sportsmanship
  • delivering positive reinforcement
  • developing fundamental skills
  • gaining results from hard work
  • fostering a love of the sport
  • providing opportunities to excel
  • most importantly, having fun
     


Each year PGSL organizes and offers these programs for the community:

2016 Opening Day With the San Diego Padres

12U Gold Western National Champions

Spring Recreational Season-RecBall  (February through May) - An intramural league program that provides a recreational and instructional environment for girls ages 5 and older.

Summer All-Star Season (May through July) - A competitive environment for our more adept and dedicated players, ages 7 & older. The program provides our girls the opportunity to compete against the other local, state and national All-Star teams.

Fall Winterball Season - WinterBall (August through November) -  A semi-competitive, skill-building environment for any player age 8 and older desiring more instruction and opportunity to play.   Games are played against other leagues in northern San Diego County.

Fall Winterball Season - Phantoms (November through March) -  The Phantoms teams are comprised of PGSL girls who want to advance their softball skills in a competitive environment.  Team try outs occur every year at the beginning of Winter Ball season and selected players must have the desire to commit themselves to the team. The girls will practice weekly and play in tournaments as directed by the coaching staff.  The Phantom season ranges from the middle of November through the start of the recreational season.  At this time, the Phantoms girls will be drafted onto recreational teams and play out the rec season.  The PGSL Board would like to comprise the Phantom teams by the player’s birth year, starting each summer with league age 9 girls (2010 for the 2019 rec season) through league age 14 girls.  The Phantom teams enable the girls to remain highly focused and competitive throughout the winter season.  If your daughter has the desire then she should come out and be part of the journey!

Coaches Training- In preparation for RecBall, PGSL provides and requires regular classroom and hands-on instruction for all of our head coaches.

Skills Clinics- PGSL offers our players clinics covering basic and advanced skills development that is conducted by local professionals and high school/college level athletes.

Youth Umpire Program- We provide an opportunity for older girls to learn to umpire through official training.   In addition, they can earn money working as umpires at many of our league games.

Student-Athlete Recognition - At the end of our recreational season we award $50 to all 6th - 8th grade girls who turn in Spring report cards with all A's as a way of encouraging the girls to be good students as well as athletes. 

Summer All-Star Tournament- Each year, PGSL hosts the Poway Summer Heat Classic Tournament. It's a fun and exciting way to spend a weekend watching top quality youth softball teams from all over Southern California compete.
