The 40th Anniversary season of The Greenville Girls Softball Association is just around the corner. Leagues for all ages are available at the Stebbins Field location on State Route 49 North in Greenville. The Greenville Girls Softball Association continues to offer Slow Pitch and Fast Pitch Softball to all Darke County Girls. The organization is going strong and growing with over 500 girls participating throughout the summer and fall.

Leagues offered include Slow-Pitch leagues, T-Ball (4-6 yrs old), Munchkin (7-8 yrs), Minor (9-10 yrs), Junior (11-13 yrs), and Senior (14-18 yrs) leagues.

For the first time, GGSA will host a league for girls older than 18 years of age called the Super Senior League for ages 19-25 years of age. This league has been created after demand was brought to the attention of association officers. The league will be structured like all of the other GGSA slow-pitch leagues with regular season games being played beginning on Opening Day and ending with an end of season tournament held in July. Girls playing in this league will be expected to respect all association rules and regulations and will be expected to contribute to the association by helping in the spring fundraising efforts and/or by paying their yearly entry fee.

GGSA Slow Pitch Leagues are open to All Darke County girls.

Fast pitch leagues are offered to all Greenville girls and also girls outside the Greenville School District who are not offered to play in the Cross County Fast Pitch League that Greenville is currently a part of. Fast Pitch is offered to girls in grades, 3rd & 4th, 5th & 6th, and 7th & 8th grade. The traveling fast pitch league, called the Cross County Fast Pitch League, has many Darke County community teams as well as teams from Miami and Preble counties. The league is strictly a recreational league and is intended to teach the girls the fundamentals of fast pitch softball. All three leagues end with a season ending league tournament hosted by one of the communities entered in each league.

GGSA Girls may play both Slow Pitch and Fast Pitch and are required to only pay once OR participate in the GGSA annual fundraiser and meet the fundraiser goals.
