Fall softball is for players looking for a fun, developmental environment. There are typically 1-2 practices per week. Practices will start in mid-August. Games will be played on Sundays and run from early September through the middle of November. Families may travel to other Orange County cities for games.
All adults who interact with the players on the field or in the dugout in practices or in games must fill out the annual USA Softball Background check form. Please click on the link below if you did not already complete a background check last Spring.
Practice days and times are set by the coach after team selection.

The Fall Ball season generally starts at the end of August with games starting after Labor Day. The season usually ends in November the week before Thanksgiving.
Fall Ball is comprised of two separate programs:
Both programs involve playing teams from other leagues, but each offers a different level of competition and commitment from the girls.
Note: During Fall, players will move up to their Spring division to get some experience with any new equipment or rule changes. For example, if your player is moving to the next age division in Spring of 2021, she will "play up" to that division during this Fall season (i.e., if your player is a 2nd year 8U, moving to 10U in spring, she will play 10U Fall Ball now).
The "Rec" program is competitive, but has less intensity and weekly time commitment compared to the Select program and does not require an invitation from a coach.
The "Select" program is highly competitive with a greater time commitment required. Players must be selected by the Select team coach and the selection process is completely at the coach's discretion. If your player is not selected, she will be placed on a recreational team. In the event that LNGS hosts a Select tournament, there may be an additional volunteer requirement or buyout. This will be determined as we get closer to the event.
Friend requests are only allowed for players new to softball.
Only ONE friend request is allowed and please note that if multiple girls request the same friend it may not be possible to honor all the requests. We will do the best we can but can not guarantee placement with the requested friend.
Please fill in the "Friend Request" field when registering for fall season in order for your request to be considered.
