8U Fall Ball
MGSA enters the 3rd season of 8U Fall Ball! The objective of all MGSA softball programs is to provide a fun, learning sports opportunities for our girls and young women.

Fall Ball is viewed as a valuable stepping stone into the Spring/Summer season.

While we do like to compete, Fall Ball coaches are encouraged to take advantage of situations to give players time at positions at which they may be relatively new as well as to provide roughly equal playing time to all players. We place considerable importance during both practices and games on teaching our players the fundamentals of the game. Having fun is an important factor. However, positioning players and playing time is considered when playing the state tournament, where winning advances the team.
