Deer Park Girls Softball

Deer Park Girls Softball is an independent, non-profit organization committed to providing all girls with an experience that fosters positive self-esteem, team spirit and individual growth through personal achievement and team play.

Our goal is for each player to have fun while gaining knowledge of the game. We strive to create and maintain an environment of teamwork, honesty and fair play with a secondary importance placed on winning.
 

 

LEAGUE GOALS

  • Teach each girl the fundamentals of the game.
     
  • Encourage development and good sportsmanship of all players through participation in a team environment.
     
  • For the players to have fun, make new friends, and grow as a member of a team.
     
  • To help players become physically fit and to value fitness in their lives.
     
  • Win enough games to feel good about the team and the season. The league will make every effort to create balanced teams, allowing for the highest level of fair competition within each grade and ensuring that players feel good about their team and the season.
     
  • To encourage continued participation by building a passion for the sport of softball.


We strive to help coaches and parents focus on making the experience of practices and games fun, while helping the girls develop and mature as player and as people. Together, we all must demonstrate how to win with grace and lose with dignity.

PLAYER CONDUCT

  • Listen to your coaches.

  • Attend practices regularly.
  • Be at games on time, or inform your coach if you have a schedule conflict.

  • Respect your teammates, other teams, your coaches and the umpire.

  • Cheer your team and say only positive things about your opponents and the umpire.

  • Clean up the field area after each practice and/or game.


ADULT CONDUCT (COACHES AND PARENTS)

  • Be positive toward your daughter with respect to her performance, her teammates, and girls on other teams.  Positive cheering only.

  • Reinforce positive behavior.
  • Respect your daughter's coach, other coaches and umpires.
  • Coaches are expected to monitor the behavior of the players and fans associated with their teams.
  • Unsportsmanlike conduct by a coach or a parent is unacceptable and a significant offense will result in expulsion from the league.  Adults must be role models and demonstrate sportsmanship and respect.
  • Coaches can discuss calls with umpires for clarification, but arguing calls, or publicly criticizing calls, will not be tolerated.
  • Alcohol consumption and smoking are prohibited on or near the fields.

Please keep in mind that softball is a sport, and good performance on the field translates into winning. Winning takes on a life of its own, and energizes a team and its players. We let this happen in Deer Park Girls Softball, but recognize that development comes from losing, as well. If winning becomes the sole purpose of your child’s team, something is wrong. Let us know.
