We are starting an hour earlier each wednesday and priority will be given

to the designated division levels as noted above so that we can involve more

of the young girls and still get them home for bedtime.

The cost will be increased to $50 because we have 11 weeks booked and because

the cost of the gym has increased by 75% this year. Payment can be made in

person on January 28th.

FAQ

 

Q. What is the time commitment involved?

A. Teams play around 20 games from mid-May until the end of August and then playoff games in September (except for Midget and Junior which end before school starts). You are looking at 1.5 games per week and most likely 1 practice per week at the discretion of the coach.

Q. Where are the games played?

A. Our home diamond is Eringate Park at Eringate and Wellesworth. Half of the games and all practices will be at this location. All of our teams play in the Mississauga Association, so the other half of the games will be at parks in Mississauga.

Q. When are the games played?

A. Every division has their set game nights and game times. Mite nights are monday/wednesday. Squirt nights are tuesday/thursday. Novice nights are monday/wednesday. Bantam nights are tuesday/thursday. Midget nights are sunday/monday/wednesday. Junior nights are sunday/tuesday/thursday. Ladies play double-headers on friday night. In general, the younger girls play at 6:30 and the older girls play at 8:30. No games are on the weekend except for some Midget and Junior sunday night games.

Q. Does my daughter need prior experience?

A. No, she doesn’t! We actively encourage all girls to experience the fun of girls softball. We continue to expand our program of skills training for the girls as well as for their coaches, so no prior knowledge of the game is necessary to participate.

Q. What is the cost to play?

A. The youngest girls pay $210 and the older girls pay $260.

Q. We go away during the summer….??

A. Every player misses some games. It is up to each family to decide how many missed games are too much. The girls on a team develop their skills and TEAM spirit all season, so missing half of the games will put your daughter at a disadvantage when the playoffs come around. This is a hard question to answer, so if you have any doubts, feel free to send me an email.

LEAGUE OF CHAMPIONS

Etobicoke Girls Softball officially began fielding teams for the 2006 MGSA season. The teams were made up of players registered with Bloordale Baseball and Eringate Minor Softball. In November of 2008, the league was legally incorporated as a non-profit corporation and the softball programs from Bloordale and Eringate were dismantled to form the basis of the new league. 
During the 2006 and 2007 season, the league struggled under the weight of making the merger work for the girls and we did not win any of the division championships. Beginning in 2008, we were able to focus more energy on developing the girls and their coaches and this resulted in immediate success which continues to this day.
Over the 9 seasons that Etobicoke Girls Softball has entered teams in the MGSA houseleague program, there have been 69 Championships awarded. Etobicoke has won 20 of those Championships; more than any other league in the MGSA. What follows is a list of the Championship titles won by Etobicoke Girls Softball teams.
