Welcome to Mt. Lebanon Girls Softball!

UpdatedThursday February 27, 2020 byMLGSA.

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 to promoting good sportsmanship in all association-sponsored activites. Through the efforts of our many volunteers, we offer softball programs in both fast-pitch and slow-pitch softball.

Our season breaks down like this ...

SPRING

-- Local slow-pitch softball leagues for girls in 1st through 12th grades. Girls from Mt. Lebanon are placed onto teams either by school (1st through 3rd grade) or by draft (4th through 12th grade) and play against other girls from the municipality. This is the largest, most populated league we offer and is split across five levels: First Grade, Instructional (2nd-3rd grades), Junior (4th-5th), Senior (6th-8th) and Major (9th-12th).

-- Fast-pitch travel teams at three levels -- 10U, 12U and 15U -- that compete against other teams from the Pittsburgh area.

SUMMER

-- Slow-pitch travel teams at various levels (depending on interest) that compete in tournaments around the Pittsburgh area. Tryouts are held in June.

-- Fast-pitch travel teams at various levels (depending on interest) that compete in tournaments around the Pittsburgh area.

FALL

-- Fast-pitch travel teams at various levels (depending on interest) that compete against other teams from the Pittsburgh area.

 

CODE OF CONDUCT

The MLGSA 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 foster the building of character in young athletes through youth sports. Players are asked to honor the game by showing respect for the game, rules, opponents, coaches and umpires. Coaches are asked to focus on positivity, teamwork and sportsmanship instead of competition. We expect the coaches to want to win but ask them to focus on instilling the value of sportsmanship. By these means, the life lessons learned on the field of play may grace each player long after her playing days are over. We ask parents to honor our definition of “winner” as someone who gives maximum effort, continues to improve and does not allow fear of making mistakes to stop her.
