Recently, authorities issued interim guidance for youth sports which allows camps, clinics, conditioning, and practices to once again resume. Although we have yet again moved back to the purple tier Statewide and we are not yet approved for actual game play with no approval date in sight, we are excited to keep our players 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 so we have to abide by their rules and what they set forth for field usage.
Players will be drafted to teams like they are in normal Spring and will continue to work on their softball skills, make bonds and have fun. Our program will last from February 1 through May 1. Rec team evaluation dates will be announced in the beginning of January based on field availability. Our Select team program will hold tryouts after rec teams are formed.
You will notice at checkout that the cost for this program is significantly lower than normal. Because we pay most of the season costs in January the registration fees are non-refundable once teams are formed. Please note there are no games included in this program cost. Although we intend to schedule and play games in Spring, with all the uncertainty we aren't comfortable collecting umpire fees at this time. Umpire fees will be collected once games are approved. The cost does include jersey and visor along with all the normal USA Softball registration fees and District field usage.
To make sure we are offering the best program we can and to be able to feel confident that we can follow team sizes set forth by the District we will be limiting registration numbers this year and will close registration once those numbers are met or on 1/31/20, whichever comes first.
Play with requests are not guaranteed for any division other than 6U/teeball.
We thank you for your continued support and look forward to seeing you safely out on the fields very soon!!

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:
