AGSA Registration

The Ames Girls Softball Association (AGSA) program has been serving the Ames community since 1973 and is open to girls ages 4 through 16. The season runs from May until the end of June. The five leagues and associated fees are:

Pre-Kindergarten T-ball $50
K-1st grade Machine pitch $75
2nd-3rd Child pitch $85
4th-5th Child pitch $100
6th-9th Child pitch $100

There is a $20 discount for each additional player from the same family. Financial assistance is available to players whose families cannot afford the registration fee. In general, there are no refunds of league fees. Players may play above their age or grade in school, but they can't play below their age or grade in school. AGSA reserves the right to ask a player who is playing above her age or grade in school to move to an age/grade appropriate league.

Teams are formed using a blind draft by the League Commissioners and other board members shortly after the close of registration. It has been decided by the AGSA Board Registration Committee to randomly place girls on softball teams. Every effort will be made to accommodate carpooling requests; however, placement cannot be guaranteed.

Teams play approximately ten games during the season and most teams have two contacts per week (game or practice). Coaches will contact their team members in late March or early April.

There are three main sources of income to cover the cost of league play: tournament hosting, sponsorship from local businesses, and player fees. The coaches and board members of AGSA are volunteers. For information regarding sponsorship or donations by your employer or business, please contact Julie Peterson sponsor@amesgirlssoftball.org . The AGSA is a 501(c)(3) charitable corporation. Donations are tax deductible. For more information about the program or if you wish to volunteer to help, contact one of these AGSA board members:
