Fall Ball schedule is produced and maintained by USA Softball. They are working with 21 Leagues that each have 5 divisions. Changes and substitutions are inevitable and unfortuantely delay the process of releasing the entire schedule. We will continue to provide current updates as we receive them. Your patience is appreciated. If you find yourself frustrated and disappointed with the process please remember that we could use your help with data entry to be sure that all player information and registration is entered on time and corrections are made and sent to USA Softball as needed. Please contact Jeannie at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Practice under the lights. The City of Torrance sponsors may programs that require field space and time under the lights. Unfortunately Softball is not a year around sport and our season runs from February through July. Right now the priority is Soccer and Football. Most lighted fields are already committed to the other organizations. You can help by being sure you arrive 15 minutes before practice times and encourage your daughter to have all the gear she needs and to start warming up on her own. Now Coach is able to use every bit of sunlight left at the end of the day.
NTGSL plays just about year round.
- Spring Season runs from around the second week of February and goes thru mid May. Our Spring being the most common season for players to play often offers a little more competition. In spring our players usually receive a full unifrom, which varies from season to season but typically will include 1 player jersey, 1 player pant, a headband or visor, and 1 pair of socks. You may ask to purcahse additional pieces if you would like. Players also receive pictures, a yearbook, and hardware either tropghy or medal.
- All Stars Program is invitation ONLY. Players gear up to represent our entire league in several tournaments that span roughly all Sumer. (In 1994 NTGSL began to host our very own All Star tournament, Summer Slam. Summer Slam is a great time to bring your player and watch a few games. The level of focus and intensity these team have going into All Stars is incredible to see.)
- Fall Ball is NTGSL's least competitive season as focus is on skills, player devlopment, and gives flexibility towards position exploration as well as introduces players to new divisions. Fall Ball is a short season and NTGSL does not control scheduling for this season as the LA/Southbay District puts together the entire schedule for all leagues participating in the Fall Ball program. Because this season is short in time length to accomodate the time length every
Softball is a process:
Most of us have seen those memes of the parents reaction to their child making an error, that last out to end the game, the ball between the legs that allowed that last run to score or the fly ball right to them that at the last second turned and dropped on the ground. Please have compassion and help her build the bridge to get over it. Errors are just as much part of the game as Grand slams. Sports wouldnt need to be practice if players never made errors. Just some food for thought.
