2021 Spring Recreation Season

MLGS Parents,
 
The Mount Laurel Girls Softball Board first and foremost hope you and you family are safe and healthy, we have been going through unprecedented trying times and we hope to get back to normalcy soon.
 
The good news is that we want to let everyone know that registration for our T-Ball, Ponytail, Rookie, 10U, 12U, 14U and 16U Spring Recreation Softball Leagues is now open.
 
Registration Information:
 
To register your child, you can either click this link:  MLGS SPRING 2021 REGISTRATION PAGE or you can log into your account at Mt. Laurel Girls Softball. Please share this email with anyone who would be interested in registering their daughter to play softball. 
 
When you register, and get to the “Payment Page” you will be charged $0.00, this is so we can continue to monitor the COVID-19 information and if the season needs to be cancelled like 2020 was we will not have to issue any refunds.  Once a start date is established you will receive an E-Mail stating that your daughter was “Invited” to play and you will need go back into your account and “Accept” the invitation and at that time you will pay the registration fee. 
 
Our goal at MLGS is to provide girls with a safe and fun environment to play softball, and after the year we have gone through we know parents are looking for safe opportunities for their children to get out and enjoy some physical activity as well as getting together with other kids in a safe environment.  So if the events of this past year has financially affected your family please feel free to reach out to Richard Young, the MLGS President at [email protected] to see how we can help.
 
Information for Spring 2021 Season:

Typically the MLGS Softball Season starts early April, as noted above we will monitor the COVID-19 information from the Government as well as local and national health officials to determine when it is appropriate to begin the season, to ensure the safety of our players and families.
 
Girls in Kindergarten will play in our TBall league.  
Girls in 1st grade will play in our Ponytail league.  
Girls in 2nd and 3rd grade will play in our Rookie league.
 
For girls born in years 2004-2011, they will play on age-based teams (10U, 12U, 14U, & 16U).  For our age-based teams, we hope to have enough teams in each age group to run a softball league made up entirely of Mt. Laurel teams.  Sometimes we aren’t able to field enough teams for an age group, and our Mt. Laurel teams will play against teams from other local towns.  If this happens for your daughter’s age group, a limited amount of travel will be required for away games.
 
IF YOUR DAUGHTER’S AGE GROUP DOES NOT HAVE ENOUGH TEAMS TO PLAY IN A MOUNT LAUREL IN HOUSE ONLY LEAGUE THEY WILL PLAY AGAINST OTHER TOWN'S RECREATION TEAMS ONLY.  
 
For girls who are born at the end of 2011 and are in 3rd grade, they are eligible to play in our Rookie league or on a 10U age-based team.  It’s up to you which league you register your daughter for.  If it’s your daughter’s first time playing softball, we’d recommend registering her for the Rookie league (2nd & 3rd graders).  If you choose to register your daughter to play on a 10U team, she will be playing with and against 4th and 5th graders.  She will also be placed on a team that is put together through a draft (no guarantee to be with girls from her school or with requested friends).  If you choose to register your daughter to play on a Rookie team (2nd & 3rd graders), she’ll be placed on a team based on player and coach requests and with other girls from her elementary school.  For girls that fall into this overlap, if you have questions as to which league would be best for your daughter, contact us and we will work with you to find the best fit for your daughter.
 
Registration is open until February 28th, for girls playing 10U & above that register after February 28th, a late fee will be charged.  For girls playing in our TBall, Ponytail, & Rookie leagues that register after March 14th, will be charged a late fee.  Please register your daughter before the late fee kicks in.  By doing this, we will guarantee her a spot on a team (provided we reach the minimum enrollment for the league she’s registered).  If you wait to register your daughter until the late registration period, besides paying a late fee, you risk the chance of your daughter’s league being full.  Also for our younger leagues we may not be able to honor requests or place your daughter on a team with other girls from her school.  By registering early, it saves you money and it helps us because we will have a more accurate number of girls who will be playing this spring.  This number is used to determine how many teams and coaches we will need at each age group and allow us to order uniforms before the season begins.  
 
Thanks,
