Welcome Mill Valley softball players and families to the 2022 registration page! It is our mission to teach the fundamentals of softball, to understand what it is to be a great teammate, and of course, to have a fantastic time along the way. We encourage as many parents as possible to get involved with MVGS, whether it be coaching, assisting on the field or helping out however possible. You will get more out of it more than you could ever imagine!
This registration session will allow you to complete contact information, sign up for participation or sponsorships and submit payment. To complete registration through our secure site, please have your credit card available.
For all girls ages pre K - 15
10u/12u/15u will have an All-Star tournament if games are allowed
We try to grant friend requests but do not guarantee it and do not consider friend requests after registration deadline. We attempt to make balanced teams in terms of numbers and consider skill levels of the players.
Coaches pick practice days/times so we do not know the practice day until we discuss with the coach.
We follow the rules of Marin Girls Softball and teams are formed based on a 2-year age grouping, not by school grade level.

"Softball is the main thing I remember from growing up, so I would pretty much equate my MVGS experience with my childhood experience. I was a shy kid, so having teammates and a sport where I excelled did a lot for my self-confidence and social skills. It's been 20 years since I first joined MVGS (whoa) and some of my best friends today are former teammates. Being part of a group that works toward a shared goal is an amazing bonding experience, and my friends and I still reminisce about our early softball days!
I would encourage every young kid to join MVGS. Being part of a team has so much value, but beyond that, softball is special. It's a technical game with so many facets. There's room for a huge range of skills from mental strategy to physical coordination. It really is a game of specialties, which means there are so many opportunities to fit in."
