The Mississauga Girls Softball Association (MGSA) is an umbrella organization that provides a venue for young ladies in Mississauga to play competitive house league softball. Through our member leagues, we provide fastpitch softball for players from age 8 to age 22, from Mite to Midget. We also have a Ladies recreational division for players 23 and up.

MGSA member leagues include Erindale Lions, Mississauga Majors, Mississauga North Tigers and Mississauga Southwest Hurricanes. We interlock at all ages with Etobicoke Girls SoftballIn the Bantam, and Midget divisions, we also interlock with  Martingrove, Milton Girls Softball and Oakville Girls Softball.

Our season runs from mid-May to late August for Midget. The Mite through Bantam & Ladies season is from mid-May to mid-September. Registration is through your local league. You can email us for the league closest to you.    


Ladies Division:
Our Ladies division provides a recreational outlet for adults to continue to play softball. Many of our players are graduates from the Midget and Junior divisions of the MGSA, and continue to play for the enjoyment of the game. Our season runs from May to September, with Friday night doubleheaders, and some Sunday games. We are always looking for individual players or team entries. If you are interested in playing this season, please contact us at mgsa@live.ca.
