WESTERN LOUDOUN GIRLS SOFTBALL

REGISTRATION SYSTEM

Thank you for your interest in Western Loudoun Girls Softball League. You have reached the registration system for all league offerings, to include the Recreation League as well as the Loudoun Liberty Travel program. This program is used to register girls for the upcoming Fall 2020 recreation league season as well as for 2020-2021 Loudoun Liberty Travel team try-outs (10U, 12U, 14U, 16U, and 18U age brackets). Please note that there is no financial commitment for travel try outs, however, the league prefers potential travel players register for try outs using this system.

Loudoun Liberty Travel Team Try-Outs Information

Eligibility - Loudoun Liberty Travel try-outs are open to all players meeting the age requirements for each respective bracket for which the player is interested in playing. A player’s “playing age” will be determined by the players age on January 1, 2021. Specifically, the age criteria for each bracket is as follows:

10U- Player must be born on or after 1/1/2010

12U- Player must be born on or after 1/1/2008

14U- Player must be born on or after 1/1/2006

16U- Player must be born on or after 1/1/2004

18U- Player must be born on or after 1/1/2002

The travel program is on a try out and selection process. Registration for try outs does not guarantee a player a spot on the roster. Team fees will be calculated on an individual team basis and can/will vary from team-to-team. If a player is selected for a team, the player/family will be asked to submit a player commitment form along with a $250 non-refundable fee at the time of commitment.

Team placement for 10U: is based on player assessments, league will review and choose teams as equal as possible, player's residence may be considered but is not guaranteed based on team location. Requests for a particular team cannot be honored.

Team placement for 12U and Up: Teams are formed based on player assessments and a draft conducted prior to the season. Requests for a particular team cannot be honored.

Please contact the appropriate Age Level Commissioner for all registration questions.

VOLUNTEER POSITIONS - Western Loudoun Girls Softball relies on many volunteers in order to ensure that each season is a success.  During the registration process, you can sign up for any of the following positions: 

  • League Commissioner - Each league requires one person to handle general oversight duties for the league.  The position comes with a voting seat on the League Board of Directors.
  • Head Coach - Each team needs one person to be in charge of practices, games, etc...  All coaches must be registered with ASA
  • Assistant Coach - Teams can have one or more assistant coaches who can support the head coach in all on-field activities.  As with Head Coaches, all coaches must be registered with ASA.
  • Team Manager - An optional off-field position that would be responsible for coordinating paperwork, ordering team uniforms, handling team contact lists, etc.  This role is an administrative one; any person holding this position for a team would be the team's "front office".
  • Team Parent - The team parent role would be for someone who wants to take on some, but not all, of the off-field activities; typical functions of this role would include setting up the post-game snack schedule for the team, coordinating fundraising activities, and planning any post-season team party.
  • Other - If you want to help out somehow, but aren't sure if any of the above titles fit you, just check this box, and we'll find something for you to do.  Whether it be keeping score during games, or helping maintain fields or equipment, coming up with new ideas for fundraising, helping find team sponsors, or anything else you might think of, we'll welcome your help.

--NOTE: For age divisions 10U-18U the WLGSL will not be providing shorts. With so many girls wearing softball pants and sizing being so difficult, the league has decided to let the girls purchase their own pants.

Thank you!
