Huntington Beach Girls Softball is now accepting registration for the Spring 2016 season. There are no tryouts for HBGS - all girls who sign up are placed on a team and play - For over 25 years our goals at HBGS have been to build girls confidence and teach them how to be team players by offering them a fun, encouraging, motivating and positive environment to thrive in while maintaining a competitive atmosphere. We are dedicated to teaching girls from ages 5-14 the basic rules, skills and sportsmanship of softball appropriate to their specific ages and skill set that they can take with them to high school and beyond. HBGS is 100% volunteer based and we are always looking for volunteers to serve the hundreds of girls each season that participate in our league, so please sign up to help. All games for 6U, 8U, and 10U are played at Circle View Elementary School in Huntington Beach. 12U and 14U will play some of their games at Circle View Elementary and at other fields in Orange County.
According to a survey reported in the Wall Street Journall, what kids dislike the most about sports is the car ride home. Too often, the first thing a parent may say after a game is a critical remark, an accusatory question or offer “you should haves!” to their kids. This can cause any player to lose interest in playing and start to dread anything to do with participating in sports.
Parents often don't realize the impact of their words and forget that kids seek approval and want to impress them during games. When players feel put down, they can lose their love for softball. Consider the following when talking to your kids about their performance on the field:
