There is Always Something Happening at Bonita Valley!
Tuesday, November 10th, 2015 8:45am 2016 Season Begins
Registration for the 2016 Bonita Valley Girls Softball Recreation season will begin November 16, 2015. All registrations must be completed on-line. You have the option to pay your fees on-line as you register or at one of the on-site events (just select cash/check as your payment option when you register).
On-line registration began November 16, 2015.
The second part of the registration process is to bring one copy of your completed registration form, a copy of your payment confirmation e-mail (if you paid on-line), and the birth certificate of your player(s) to an on-site event for verification. The birth certificate will be returned to you immediately.
Division Age Groups
T-Ball (6U): Ages 4 - 6 years
Super 6'ers**: Age 6
Rookies (8U): Ages 7 - 8 years
Mini-Minors (10U): Ages 9 - 10 years
Minors (12U): Ages 11 - 12 years
Majors (14U): Ages 13 - 14 years
**Super 6'ers are for 6 year olds that are looking for a more challenging game. It is T-Ball but some of the rules will be similar to the Rookie Division. For example, taking away the Tee for hitting during the games.
The date used to determine age eligibility is December 31, 2015.
On-Site Registration Dates
After registering on-line, you must complete the registration process by attending an on-site registration event. Please bring one copy of your registration form, a copy of your payment confirmation e-mail (if paid on-line) and birth certificate of your player(s).
All fees are due when you attend an on-site registration event if you did not pay them when you registered on-line. Here are the dates and locations for the on-site registration events:

All paperwork and fees not yet paid must be completed and submitted by January 16 to ensure your player is registered to play this season. Anyone registering after this date will be placed on a waiting list and added to team rosters only to fill out the teams created, if needed. There are no guarantees from the waiting list.

Early Bird Discount
This year we will take $20 off the total registration fees if they are paid before December 9th.
When attending a Skills Assessment we strongly recommend bringing a glove, cleats, bat, helmet and a protective face mask. If your player is going out for catcher, also bring catchers gear.
- PITCHERS AND CATCHERS MUST BE EVALUATED: Any player wanting to be considered a pitcher or catcher this season must be assessed (all divisions except T-Ball and Rookies).
- Prior Position Players moving up from the Rookies Division must be evaluated.
- All new Players to the league going into Mini-Minors, Minors or Majors Divisions must also be evaluated.
Players that fall into one of these categories who do not attend a skills assessment will not be placed on a team during the draft. Here are the dates and locations for the assessments.
Saturday, January 9th 9AM - 12PM: Discovery Park For Players With Last Name Begins A - L
Saturday, January 16th 9AM - 12PM: Discovery Park For Players With Last Name Begins M - Z
BVGASA holds a blind draft to place the players on their teams. This season the draft will be conducted on January 19-21. All drafted players will be notified shortly after the draft by their new managers.
New Uniforms for the 2016 Season
This 2016 season, we are partnering up with the San Diego Padres to provide new uniforms for our League. With this comes new challenges in ordering and returning the uniforms, so we are planning on ordering the uniforms in bulk. Then after they are handed out to the teams we will be able to exchange if needed.
Come Out to Help Prepare The Fields
Join us on Saturday December 12, 2015 from 8AM to 12PM to help "fix" the fields in preperation of the 2016 season. We have plenty of work to do on the fields and any help counts. Bring your shovel, broom, rake, gloves, or just yourself to help. Also, if you have a teenager looking to complete some community work bring them along.
Help Someone Out
We all need help now and then. Bring old softball equipment and gear to Discovery Park on both assesment dates (1/9/16 and 1/16/16) and donate to help someone that could use it. If your daughter is looking for softball equipment or gear stop on by.
