FALL BALL REGISTRATION IS OPEN!!

Welcome to the Fall Ball 2020 Practice League Registration with Huntington Beach Girls Softball​!

Recently, authorities issued interim guidance for youth sports which allows camps, clinics, conditioning, and practices to once again resume. While we are not yet approved for actual game play, we are excited to get our players back out on the fields in any capacity we can.  As you all mostly know, HBGS does not own ANY of its own fields.  We lease our fields from OVSD, City of HB and City of Westminster.  We rely on those entities 100% for field usage. 

We are excited to announce that the District has opened the fields back up to us!!  While we don't expect to get approval for game play soon, we will work on creating a results driven program for our girls that will keep them positively engaged and active this fall season to prepare them for the Spring 2021 season.

For now we are looking forward to getting our girls out for practice and keeping them active.  Players will be placed on teams like they are in normal Fall or Spring where they can continue to work on their softball skills, make bonds and have fun.  Our program will last until November 21.

The cost for this program is $99 and includes field rental fees, equipment fees and HBGS swag bag of goodies for divisions 6U/Tee Ball - 16U practice teams.  There is an option in registration for play with requests so you can sign up and request to play with friends.  Registration can be paid in full or by payment plan at checkout.  Please note there are no games included in this program. 

If your daughter is currently playing or practicing with a travel team, we prefer they stay committed to only their travel teams to reduce the exposure to our players from these players who are participating in unauthorized play.  Player safety and the ability to keep our fields open is our number one priority at this time.

We know not all families are ready to start games even when they are allowed.  Should we be allowed to participate in games we will open a new registration to cover jersey and umpire fees for those who are ready for that next step of group activities.

Spring 2020 players wishing to return should have registered through the link sent to them in a prior email.

We look forward to seeing you safely out on the fields very soon!!

BE YOUR DAUGHTER'S BIGGEST FAN!!

 

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:

Parents Do's: 

  • Be their biggest fan. Make sure to maintain a positive attitude and environment for your child by cheering and showing them support. After all, a child is trying their best to impress their parents, so show them they’re appreciated! 
  • Focus on the positive. Great catch! Nice throw! Amazing try! Wow so close! These are all great ways to express to kids that they’re doing a good job and it will motivate them to try even harder.
  • Let them make mistakes. Making mistakes is the best way to get better. Don’t try to correct the mistakes by yelling directions from the side. Instead, let them try their moves and work on them next time you’re on a field together.
  • Encourage goal setting and measure progress. Aside from staying active and having a great time, kids strive to become good players. Encourage players to talk about ways they can improve and offer methods or ask a coach to help them improve those things.  

Parent Don'ts: 

  • Don’t talk about negative things on the ride home. There are much better ways and places to communicate what your kids could have done better than questioning their actions during the car ride home. They are still learning the game and are likely aware that they didn’t have a great game. Try taking them to a park over the weekend and work on things to help improve their game in a fun, loving environment instead. 
  • Don’t offer excuses. Putting blame on an ump, the field, weather or a coach for a bad performance may offer short-lived comfort, but this attitude can backfire. Kids will fail to take accountability and will instead learn to blame other factors when things don’t go their way. 
  • Don’t yell instructions during games. This causes confusion and annoys other parents, coaches and players (including your own!). A player develops best when they are allowed to make their own decisions on the field, figuring out what works best and working on those things at practice. 
  • Don’t criticize umps in front of the kids. Kids will learn from their parents so be aware that yelling at an ump is one of the things they will pick up. And HS/College players can tell you that yelling at the ump DOES NOT make them change their mind!
