2023 Spring Softball

Welcome to GAA & KOA Girls Softball
 
Green Tree Athletic Association (GAA) is committed to teach the game in a fun, competitive and instructional atmosphere. We are focused on improving the ability of every player while enhancing the experience for every family. Our efforts create a passion for the game that we hope last a lifetime.
 
Players ages 5-15 have the opportunity to participate in softball through GAA at a variety of levels. 
 
Softball programs we offer are:
 
SLOW PITCH
6U Instructional (New as of spring 2022) - 5-6 year old T-Ball program for girls
  • 2016-2017
8U Instructional - ~6-8 year old Slow pitch program.
  • 2014-2015 (2016's ready to move up are eligible for 8U coach pitch)
 
KOA FAST PITCH
10U - ~9-10 year old Fast Pitch program
  • 2012-2013

  • 2010-2011
15U - ~13-15 year old Fast Pitch program.
  • 2007-2009

**All divisions are determined by the player's birth year.  Birth year is January 1 to December 31 of the year in which they were born. Depending on birth month it may seem like your player is placed a year older or younger than where they should be. That is not the case. This may cause some confusion due to a players actual age at the start of the season, but rest assured your player will be properly placed according to these guidelines which are applied to softball leagues nationally.
 
In addition, a calendar year in softball is considered fall/spring, with age eligible players moving up divisions in the fall. All players end up having 2 years (4 seasons fall/spring/fall/spring) in each division. 
 
Season Info:
 
Softball Season usually kicks off with practices starting mid to late March weather depending. Games usually start around mid April and run until the middle of June.
 
8U/10/12U traditionally play in the CVC league. 6U is TBD.


KOA
In agreement with DABA(Dormont) and CSYA(Castle Shannon) and in line with past practice, please note that our 10U, 12U, and 15U Fastpitch softball teams will collectively play under the KOA banner. Due to low registration numbers the past several years, teams will be formed jointly between boroughs and play as KOA teams. Team selection will be handled by the commissioners from all 3 boroughs.
 
In these instances players from Green Tree may be assigned to teams playing out of Dormont or Castle Shannon and vice versa, we may have some of their players come to us. For the past several seasons we have used this model to help ensure that youth softball players across the district have a team to play on. The goal always being to keep the kids playing.
 
Please know, it is GAA’s first priority to keep all of our players here in Green Tree and every effort will be made to have players play in the community in which they live.
 
Concession Stand Parent Volunteer Program:
As in previous seasons, each family is required to volunteer four hours(2 shifts) of time at our concession stand during the baseball/softball season. Without parent volunteers we are unable to open and operate the stand. It is a community effort and we appreciate your cooperation.
 
After registration closes and prior to receiving a uniform, each family must submit a volunteer check for $80 ($20 per volunteered hour).
 
Checks can be made payable to Green Tree Athletic Association and mailed to PO Box 16532 Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15242 , C/O Julie Balcerak, GAA Treasurer or they can be turned in to Softball Commissioner Ashley Reig when you come to pick up your uniform. Please write "Concession Stand" in the memo of the check. *Checks must be received before a uniform is distributed.
 
This check is separate from registration fees . The check will not be cashed upon receipt and will be destroyed at the end of the season if four hours of volunteer time have been fulfilled. The check will be cashed if the family does not fulfill the four hours of volunteer time.  
 
Families will be able to select their volunteer time slots and are not required to work the stand when their child is playing. We use SignUp Genius to manage the schedule and once games schedules are completed the SignUp Genius will be emailed to all baseball and softball families who registered for this season.
