Refundable cost (if you work at least 4 hours): $200
Snack bar revenue is one of the ways that LNGS is able to keep registration costs down. We greatly appreciate our softball families volunteering their time to help run the snack bar. LNGS asks each family to either work 4 hours in the snack bar, or buy out of their commitment.
If you are registering more than one player in your family, you will receive a $25 discount on the 2nd (3rd + all additional children) registration fee. In order for the registration system to recognize that you are registering multiple players, please register all of your players at this time.
Before evaluations, refunds will be granted with a $25 processing fee.
On the day of evaluations and thereafter, no refunds will be granted.
Please read the Select Page for information related to Spring Select play. Registration for Select will be available after coaches have chosen their teams.
For more information on fielding face masks, see our web page here.
Our fielding face mask policy is as follows:
Divisions for 8U-14U will attend required evaluations prior to the beginning of the season. Please make sure your player knows that the evaluations are nothing to be nervous about. They simply allow the league to make sure that each team is "drafted" and the teams are created with fairly equal abilities.
Pitching and Catching Evaluations
With the exception of players who have never pitched before, all players who would like to pitch/catch during the spring season must attend pitching evaluations. This process enables the coaches to make educated decisions regarding their pitching staff during the draft process. Pitching evaluations are for players 8U and older. Catching evaluations are for players 10U and older.
Please fill out this Pitcher/Catcher interest form when you register.
A player can request to play up to the next division, but it is not guaranteed. In order to play up, the player must:
If a player is not chosen in the top 3 draft rounds in the play-up division, she will be placed in her age-appropriate division.
A player can play up on select team if she plays up in rec, and is chosen by the select coach.
In order to play all stars in the play-up division, a player needs to make the gold team. Otherwise, the player has the opportunity to play all stars in her age-appropriate division.
A player of 6U age is eligible to play up to 8U in the Spring recreational season in the following scenarios:
LNGS and all local softball leagues operate under a draft system for the Spring season. For this reason, it is not possible to accommodate friend requests with the exception of the two circumstances outlined below. However, you will find that one of the best parts of recreational softball is all the new lifelong friends your player will find on the team she ends up on.
Friend requests are only allowed for the following two circumstances.
Only ONE friend request is allowed and please note that if multiple girls request the same friend it will not be possible to honor all the requests. We will do the best we can but can not guarantee placement with the requested friend.
For an 8U friend request to be considered, the new player MUST attend player evaluations.
All adults who interact with the players on the field/dugout in practices/games must fill out the annual USA Softball Background check form.
