Though Spring Softball 2014 has now ended we are already planning for the 2015 season. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank You – Jeff Hellkamp President of SCGS

South Colonie Youth Baseball and Girls Softball board voted unanimously to continue our Dollars for Scholars donation, but with the money earned from the AWESOME coach’s game last year, we bumped the donation UP to $1500 (previously $500)!
