To all OGSL Families:
I hope everyone and their loved ones are safe and well. I write to you during this time of “shelter in place” with sadness. After much discussion and careful consideration, the OGSL board has decided to cancel the Spring OGSL season. We are aligning with California school schedules which as you know, indicate we will not return to school this school year. Once we have a clearer vision of the future we will be in contact about the upcoming OGSL summer and fall seasons.
The majority of league expenses are incurred at the beginning of the season. However, we know that this is likely a difficult time for many OGSL families and we can offer a refund of registration fees. If your family is in need of a Spring 2020 registration refund, please contact Heather Ceron at firstname.lastname@example.org and a refund of Spring registration fees will be provided. OGSL understands the money generated by our hard working community of families and businesses is one of the keys to the league’s success. Any fees not refunded will be used toward remaining expenses, field improvements, player development, coaching clinics, player scholarships, etc.
To Our New OGSL Families:
For families that were new to OGSL this spring: we hope you were able to experience a few good practices, make some new friends, and feel the league’s passion and commitment to the game! Please stay connected with us and we look forward to welcoming you back, stronger than ever in Fall 2020 and/or Spring 2021! Playing in OGSL is a great way for girls to make friends outside of school and to hone athletics skills so that girls can possibly play softball in middle or high school! Moreover, it’s a wonderful introduction to team sports.
Let’s Stay Connected!
The board is actively brainstorming opportunities for girls to work on their skills and we’ll be back in touch soon with resources, including youtube videos the girls can watch to help refine their skill sets. Stay tuned and follow OGSL on Instagram and Facebook for more frequent updates and softball news from around the country!
We Are Growing
During this time we are looking for individuals to help fill board and committee positions. If you have some extra time please consider helping out. We’re a fun and dynamic group of volunteers, and no amount of time to volunteer is too small! The league is only as good as we make it for Oakland children.
Looking towards next season,
