About the Girls Softball Program

Girls Softball is a Glen Ellyn Park District program run with the assistance of the Glen Ellyn Girls Softball Association. The program teaches girls softball skills, while promoting teamwork, skill development, game rules, good sportsmanship, and fun.

GRADES K-8: Our softball program gives girls a chance to play and have fun while learning softball skills, teamwork, game rules, and sportsmanship. The program begins with T-Ball for Kindergartners and goes up through high school. Playoffs and All Star games are held for 3rd grade league and up. Competition levels start with recreational at the younger ages to progressively more competitive through part-time and full-time travel leagues. We strive to provide development and options to keep it fun as our players grow older and play to their level of competition.

The spring program is the House League. Teams typically play two games per week (one weeknight/one Saturday) at Ackerman Park. Teams are formed in mid-March and practices begin in April. The season runs through the end of June. Team shirts and protective equipment are provided by age group. Girls must supply their own gloves and may use their own bats and helmets. We strongly encourage parent participation as volunteers in various areas. The House League program is solely dependent on volunteer coaches and assistants. The Glen Ellyn Girls Softball Association offers support through league commissioners, coaches’ clinics, and training materials.
