Hamilton Girls Softball Association: Welcome


Welcome to the HGSA website!

 




Hamilton Girls Softball Association is a fastpitch softball program for girls ages 5-17.  Yearly, we field 35 recreational teams and sponsor 8 Hamilton Hurricane All Star teams, with 450+ girls participating within both the recrational and Hurricane programs.  Each HGSA team, recreational and All Star, has it's own team web pages within the league website.  

Since 1992, HGSA and it's dedicated staff have administered the growing sport of fastpitch softball to girls of all ages.  By separating itself from it's original beginnings at HTRBA, our league has given exclusive use of the complex fields to teaching and playing girls fastpitch softball.  In doing so, HGSA has seen many of it's former players go on to bigger venues in high school and college while continuing to play the sport they love.

For further league information, please review the web site pages.  Additional information, not listed on the web site can be obtained by contacting an HGSA E-Board member.

This site is intended for the use of all HGSA managers, coaches, players, parents, fans and sponsors. The site was initiated on November 10, 2002.

This year’s recipients for their service in 2014 are Cora Bridgers, Megan Brugnoli, Gabby Estrada, Taylor Hawkes, Aleana Rivera, Kelly Schwager, Morgan Sisz and Lauren Texany.

The PSA Awards recognize and honor volunteers who set a standard for service, encourage a sustained commitment to civic participation and inspire others to make service a central part of their lives.

ump sweep2015 HGSA SPRING CLEAN UP

 At the beginning and end of every playing season at HGSA, there is a league-wide clean up. All managers, coaches and parents of all league players are required to participate for a two hour minimum during each clean up. Spring clean up includes readying of the playing fields, grounds and equipment. Fall clean up closes down the league for the winter, putting away equipment and signs not in use, closing down the concession stands and restroom facilities, as well as readying the fields for the winter months. Divisions and teams are assigned specific areas of clean up at our Christine Ave facility.

Due to winters last gasp with todays snow and current field conditions for this weekend, ALL PLAYING DIVISIONS Spring Clean Up is March 28, 2015 at 8:00 AM.


Plan to rake grass, pull weeds, trim hedges, sweep out dugouts, paint buildings, clean indoor facilities and whatever else needs to be completed to make our complex a clean and safe place to play softball. Team managers will provide specific team assignments prior to clean up. If you possess a special skill or trade that would benefit another HGSA project, please contact your team manager for further information.  

Upon arrival, you must check in at the main table for sign-in and project assignments.   Be sure to sign in and sign out when you've completed your league requirement.
