 The current situation regarding COVID-19 is very fluid, and we appreciate everyone's patience as we navigate the best we can. Our focus will always be to get the girls back on the field with the health and safety of our players and their families being highest priority. Unfortunately, at this point, we do not have an answer as to when we can do this.

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.
