2019 Registration: Jan. 1 - March 4

  • Open to girls age 4-13.
  • Registration is based on current grade for the 2018-2019 school year.
  • March 4 is a hard deadline for a guaranteed space on a team.
  • Beginning March 5, anyone who missed the deadline can sign up for a wait list. Teams will be filled from the wait list on a first-come, first-serve basis until rosters are complete.
  • Rosters will have no more than 12 girls per team.


Age Divisions and Fees

PreK/K:  $35 (T-ball)
1st/2nd:  $80 (coach pitch)
3rd/4th:  $110 (player/coach pitch)
5th-6th:  $110 (player pitch)

League placement is based on the player's grade during the current school year. Players may play above (but not below) their grade level. AGSA reserves the right move players to the appropriate age division.

There is a $20 discount for each additional player from the same family. Financial assistance is available with an approved scholarship application. Refunds must be approved by the AGSA board. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with questions.

No guaranteed registrations will be accepted after March 4 to facilitate game scheduling with CIRL. Late registrants may sign up to join a wait list; any available spaces on teams will be filled from the waitlist on a first-come, first serve basis until all rosters are complete. Rosters will have no more than 12 girls per team. No exceptions! Please contact the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with questions.

Teams are formed in early March, using a blind draft by the league commissioner and board members. The process randomly places girls on softball teams, with an effort to evenly distribute pitchers/catchers and players from each grade level. Every effort is made to accommodate carpooling requests; however, placement cannot be guaranteed. Coaches will receive a roster at the beginning of the season and are responsible for contacting their team.

*Note: If you have unpaid registration fees from a previous season, your daughter will not be assigned to a team until all fees are paid in full. Financial assistance is available with an approved scholarship application.

What to Expect

  • Practices begin in April, weather permitting.
  • Games are played on weeknights in May and June.
  • Rally Day, scheduled for Saturday, May 11, features season-opening games and team pictures, pending availability of our photographer.
  • Coaches are volunteers and are encouraged to schedule two contacts per week (game or practice).
  • Players will be asked to participate in an annual fundraising activity (for example, butter braid sales).
  • Players in 3/4 and 5/6 leagues interested in pitching are required to attend weekly pitching clinics. For player safety, girls are not permitted to pitch in a game until they have been approved by the pitching clinic coach. 
  • There is a season-ending tournament for 3/4 and 5/6 leagues the last full week of June. Please try to avoid scheduling vacations or trips during this time so that teams may participate with a full roster. Borrowing of players for the tournament is not allowed per CIRL rules.
  • Smoking is prohibited on all AGSA and CIRL facilities.

About the Central Iowa Recreation League (CIRL)

With the exception of the PreK/K (Tee Ball) age division, AGSA teams compete against teams from other communities in the Central Iowa Recreation League. Every effort is made to schedule the same number of home and away games, with approximately 10-12 games played during the regular season. Teams in the 3rd/4th and 5th/6th grade divisions will participate in the post-season CIRL tournament during the final week in June.

Participating CIRL communities:

  • 1st/2nd: Ames, Collins-Maxwell, Colo/Nesco, Gilbert, Nevada, Roland/Story
  • 3rd/4th: Ames, Collins-Maxwell, Colo/Nesco, Gilbert, Hubbard-Radcliffe, Nevada, Roland/Story, South Hamilton
  • 5th/6th: Ames, Colo/Nesco, Gilbert, Hubbard-Radcliffe, Nevada, Roland/Story, South Hamilton


Some CIRL communities have lighted fields, but most game times are scheduled to allow for two 1:20 games per night, per field (exception: 1st/2nd age division has a three-inning or one-hour limit). Teams could be scheduled for a 5:30 p.m. start in another community, so travel time must be factored in for arrival.

Official CIRL 1st/2nd grade games begin in June; there will be inter-AGSA games scheduled during May to give teams additional playing time. There will not be a post-season tournament for this age division.

3rd/4th grade and 5th/6th grade games begin in late April/early May, weather permitting. There will be a post-season tournament the week of June 25. Please plan accordingly.

Others may apply online or contact the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Coaches are encouraged to organize at least two contacts (practices, games) per week, using AGSA's online field scheduling tool. Batting helmets, bats, balls, catcher equipment and scorebooks will be provided by the league.
