Teams are formed by end of January.

We follow the rules of Marin Girls Softball and teams are formed based on a 2-year age groupingnot by school grade levelSee below section for the age groupings.

Practices will start mid to late February with games starting mid-March.

Friend Requests: During registration, each player is able to list 2 friend requests and KGS will do their best to place on a team with one of their requested friends.  If you only list 1 friend request, we may not be able to accommodate your request as we balance the teams. Your friend requests must be girls in your same age division.  See age divisions listed in below section.

Every year we field requests for kids to move teams to be with friends.  Our commitment is to make fair and balanced teams first (with consistent guidelines) and then consider friend requests following if they make sense for balancing team numbers and talent.  We’ll do the best we can for the league and the kids.
