We had another AWESOME turnout last night at our indoor clinics and were blown away by the number of Tee Ballers, Rookies, and Mini Minors who participated! We can't say enough how much we LOVE seeing them there! The coaches may have had more fun than the kids! 😀

Our space next week is even more limited, and we only have space for the little ones. Unfortunately, there will be no open clinics for 10U + next week. ☹️

The schedule is as follows:
• Thursday, March 29th
• Roessleville Elementary School, 100 California Dr, Colonie
• 6:30 - 7:30pm - Tee Ball, Rookies, & Mini Minors

***A reminder that registration is closing on Monday, March 26th, and that coaches will be meeting and "drafting" teams on Tuesday, March 27th. You will be notified of your team/coach assignments on Wednesday, March 28th, via email. Your team coach will be contacting you shortly thereafter, as well.***

You still have time to register if you haven't already done so! Go to our website at and click on the 'Register' button!

Reminder that registration for the 2018 Spring Recreation Ball at South Colonie Youth Baseball and Girls Softball is scheduled to close on March 26! You still have time to register and be a part of what guarantees to be a great season!

We have many new faces at the park bringing lots of energy and ideas! We've already got newly refurbished turf batting cages, updated concession stand with new register with iPad based inventory/ sales, credit card ability and a real Slush Puppie machine, increased the college scholarship fund, some new equipment for the players (with more planned), with much more including the latest project ... a working softball scoreboard that is being wrapped with the SC logo as we speak!

For anyone that prefers to register in-person, we will be holding an in-person registration at the park Saturday March 24 from 9:00 am to Noon. Registration can be paid by credit card, check or cash at this event. Bryan and I will be cleaning up in the concession stand. Stop by and say hi and we would be more than happy to answer any questions you have!

The league is looking at expanding interleague games with the other surrounding leagues as well as improving the level of instruction for our players. We are also looking at reinstating the travel program for those players who wish a more competitive playing experience.  Myself as well as our Vice President of Softball, Dave Koonz, are looking forward to the next year. Thank to all the parents who supported their players this year as well as volunteering at the park. The league will be in touch soon with information regarding registration for 2015.

Our mission as always is to provide a fun and instructional Softball experience for the young girls of South Colonie.

South Colonie Girls Softball (Formerly West Albany Softball) has always been a family friendly Softball League that has provided quality and competitive games at an economical cost. We currently are encouraging any girls who wish to play to give our league a try.  Any questions feel free to contact me at

Thank You – Jeff Hellkamp President of SCGS
