KGS is committed to providing all of our players and their families with the best possible experience for the 2021 softball season. We know how important it is for our players to be active, socialize, and have fun in a safe environment. Softball is the perfect sport for this. Outdoors, local, and a great group of committed volunteers that will work hard to make this season a great experience for all.
So, with that in mind, we wanted to lay out the plan for the season ahead, so that there is complete transparency into how we’ll make this work.
Registration for the 2021 season will open on November 1, 2020. The early bird registration period ends November 30th and registration closes midnight December 16th. After 12/16, players can be added to our waitlist by filling out our Softball Interest Form registration (see link on "KGS Registration & New Player Info" page above).
Registrations received through November 30 will receive a $25 early bird discount on the full registration fee charged January 25th.

KGS Field Improvements
For 2020, we had 1 dump truck of new infield dirt delivered February 29, 2020. We got it done before Opening Day!
For 2019, KGS invested in a scoreboard, home run fence, batting cage artificial turf and removed 10 feet of sod behind baseline. After 12 years of use, we bought a new tractor for deep dragging the field. 1 1/2 dump trucks of new infield dirt were delivered April 27, 2019!
