Pool Party and Nominations for the 2015 Board - Please read below!!!!


Thank you every one for a great spring and summer season.  It has been an exciting year for the MCGSA as we continue to grow and expand our offerings as much as we can.  It was also an exciting year as we were able to help the WV ASA bring Team USA here for a clinic as well as a double-header exhibition game.

MCGSA continues to be a leader in girls fast pitch softball in north central West Virginia.

In celebration of the end of the season, MCGSA is hosting a pool party at the Marilla Park pool on 16 Aug 2014 starting at 6:30PM.  This is open to all registered players and their families.  MCGSA is supply the drinks and we are asking that you bring a covered dish of some kind to share with everyone.  If you are attending please go to this link 2014 Pool Party RSVP and let us know.  We want to get a sense of how many people are attending so that BOPARC can ensure they have enough life guards on duty.

Also, the pool party is the time for voting for the board next year.  Prior to voting this Saturday however we do need nominees for the MCGSA board.  If you are interested in nominating someone for the board or even nominating yourself, please use this link 2014 Board Nominations to submit the name or names for the open board positions.  More information about the board positions can be found by going to the MCGSA Organization menu item on the left of this web page.  Some information is also available at the nomination link.  All nominees must be members in good standing of the MCGSA.  You must also be a member in good standing to vote in the election.

ACE Certification Requirement

While we are working out the details of our coaching program, one aspect is unchanged and that is the need for all coaches to be ACE certified.

The ACE (Achieve, Certify, Educate) Coaching Certification Program is program, developed and designed to provide softball coaches of all levels an opportunity to certify as a coach with a national softball organization.

The program is managed by the National Governing Body of Softball, the ASA, and as an affiliate of the ASA our organization requires that ALL coaches take the certification classes.   Keep in mind that a coach is ANYONE that is providing instruction or guidance to the players.  

The  certification costs $25.  You can read more about the program at the link above as well as access the online classes.
