The Mt. Lebanon Girls Softball Association is a non-profit organization committed to providing girls the opportunity to play softball as an organized recreational activity and in promoting good sportsmanship in all association sponsored activities. Through the efforts of our many volunteers, we sponsor programs in both fast and slow pitch softball. In recent years we have expanded both programs to cover all school aged girls in Mt. Lebanon.
Slow pitch programs begin with instructional leagues for girls in 1st and 2nd grade and continue through high school. All leagues are "in-house" leagues where all teams consist of girls from only Mt. Lebanon.

Dear Parents and Coaches,
Mt. Lebanon Girls Softball Association is a member of the "Positive Coaching Alliance". This alliance is part of a national organization and the local Mt. Lebanon Youth Sports Alliance. The purpose is to help coaches do a better job of using sports to build character in young athletes. This was not the result of any problems in our activities, but rather as an effort to maintain and improve what is already an excellent program. Based on last year’s results and feedback, we are even more committed to making "positive coaching" an integral part of our association.
We have placed in writing what our expectations are for the players, coaches and parents during the season. These expectations are contained in three documents, one for the player, one for the coaches and assistant coaches and one for the parents or guardians. All are available at registration, from your league officers and on this website. See forms below.
The players are asked to "honor the game" by showing respect for the rules of the game, opponents, officials, teammates, the game’s tradition and coaches. The coaches are asked to be a "positive coach", not a "win-at-all-costs coach". We expect the coach to want to win, but just as importantly we want them to help the players to use sports to learn the "life lessons" that will help them be successful long after they stop playing. We ask the parents to honor the game, to give positive feedback to all involved and to reinforce our definition of a "winner" as someone who makes maximum effort, continues to learn and improve and does not allow mistakes or the fear of making mistakes stop them.
The coaches sign the coach’s guide showing their agreement to act in accordance with these principles. Coaches will review the player’s code of conduct with each player. Parents are also requested to review, sign and return the parent’s pledge.
Please show your support for what we feel is an excellent program. With your help we can make this upcoming season another "positive" experience for everyone involved.
