Monday, December 15rd, 2014 9:30am Looking for Volunteers for the 2015 Season

League Volunteers

BVGASA is a non-profit organization that survives on the volunteer time and dedication of its members, specifically the parents and businesses of the community. Again this year we will need volunteers for Team Managers, Coaches, Team Mom's, Parent Helpers, etc. (anyone who interacts with the players). If you have the desire to be a part of this season's effort in one of these capacities, you will need a new ASA background check completed as this is an ASA annual requirement. If you get it started now you will be cleared prior to the beginning of the season.

Bring a copy of this completed volunteer form and a $10.00 processing fee (if you did not pay during the on-line registration) to any of the on-site registration dates. This completed process will allow you to join in on league on-field activities like the game and practice fields. Without this, adults are not allowed on any of the fields during league activity times. This is an ASA annual requirement so once you get this done, you can use it without renewing throughout the year, no matter what league you are involved with.

Monday, November 3rd, 2014 12:30pm 2015 Season Begins

Registration for the 2015 Bonita Valley Girls Softball Recreation season will begin November 17, 2014. 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 17, 2014.

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, 2014.

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:

**Skill Assessments for those that require them will also happen on these dates. See the Skill Assessment notes below.

Registration Fees

All paperwork and fees not yet paid must be completed and submitted by January 17 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.

First Child - $135.00
Second Child - $110.00
T-Ball and Super 6'ers - $85.00
Third or More Child** - Free
**Third child is defined as a member of the immediate family only.

Skill Assessments

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 10th 9:00am - 12:00pm: Discovery Park For Players With Last Name Begins A - L
Saturday, January 17th 9:00am - 12:00pm: Discovery Park For Players With Last Name Begins M - Z

Player Draft

BVGASA holds a blind draft to place the players on their teams. This season the draft will be conducted on January 21-23. All drafted players will be notified shortly after the draft by their new managers.
