2011 Angels Gold

This is the site for all of the information regarding the 18 and under GOLD, "Angels" based in Effingham County, GA (near Savannah) and home of the 2006 ASA 16u Eastern National Champions. 2011 is the 10th year the organization has been playing fastpitch softball. The girls from our team live in the Southeastern part of the United States of America. We are registered and eligible for participation under the ASA fast pitch softball associations. Our charter and vision is to help these girls develop the skills neccessary to play at their best 100% of the time.  We proudly exist, not for ourselves and the present, but for our futures. Angels we are and Angels we will always be! This is Southeast Georgia's #1 Softball Organization and the first and only GOLD class girls fastpitch softball team in Southeast Georgia.

The primary goal of the Angels GOLD team is to gain maximum exposure for its players so that they will have every opportunity to be seen and evaluated by college coaches while at the same time gaining a berth to the USA/ASA 18u GOLD Nationals.

You can also check out the web sites for the 18u "A"-Martin, 18u "A" Angels-Tanel, the 16u "A"-Logue, the 14u "A"-Newman, the 12u "A"- Gleason and the 10u "A" Angels-Smith. When you play one of us, you play us all! Thanks for visiting our site and come back often for team updates. Don't forget to sign our guest book! .
