Playing at LGS

1.    On what days will games be played?

Games are usually played on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If a game is played at another park, games may be a different night of the week.

2.    How is the practice schedule determined?

 

Prior to the start of games, practices are normally twice a week. Most teams practice once weekly after games begin. Practice schedules are determined by the coaches.

 

3.    What time do games start?

Age groups 8U and 6U will begin games at 6:00 p.m. All other age groups will start at 7:30 p.m unless there is an open slot at 6:00 p.m.

4.    How long is the season?

The spring season begins practicing in early February. Games begin during the first week of March with the season running until May. The fall season begins practices in mid-August. Games start in September and the season ends in mid-November.

5.    How are teams picked?

Teams are picked by a coach's draft to make the teams as even as possible. All players are asked to take part in assessment day shortly after registration. The 6U age group will not have to come to assessments as those players are evenly divided by age.

6.    What are assessments?

Assessments take place before the season begins. The registered players will come to the ball park and do drills to let the coaches see the skill level of the girls. Every registered player will be placed on a team. LGS does not turn away any players as long as they are registered

7.    How do players that are trying out for JV softball register?

Players that are trying out for high school JV softball will need to register as soon as they know they didn't make the team.
