2020 summer season announcement

It is with heavy hearts that we have to announce the cancellation of the upcoming 2020 summer season due to the coronavirus.  We don't take the decision lightly and had many discussions about the challenges we face right now and going into the summer.  This is our busiest time and when all of the critical action comes together to pull off a season and there are just too many things we can't do to pull off the season.  Please accept our apologies and we will be raring to go next summer!!

SVGSA — History

_______________________________________________

The Spokane Valley Girls Softball Association first sprouted from the ambitions of a few girls who wanted to play some softball — primarily, Sal Jackson. For over 50 years now, Sal's dedication and vision has provided thousands of Spokane Valley girls the opportunity to be part of a fun and healthy family. Year after year, with the help of dozens of volunteer coaches, parents, and community friends, the league has grown into the successful and anticipated summer sports program that it is today.

Girls Softball since 1967

We have been providing summer softball fun for girls longer than anyone else in the area!

Tournaments

Each year ALL of our teams in our 10U - 18U divisions play in our end of season tournament with the top 3 teams walking away with awards.

All Games - One location

Have multiple girls playing softball, don't worry.  We are the only league that hosts all divisions and ages at one location.  No more traveling to several locations all around town!
