Athletes helping athletes showcases the civic attributes of our young ladies in the GGSL Travel Program. Foundationally, we believe that the essence of growing strong athletic programming is through a turnkey philosophy of older talent working closely with emerging new talent.
AHA grants the opportunity for younger and emerging softball players to work closely on skill development, basic game knowledge, foundational mechanics and further enhancing a love of the game. The hope is that as our girls advance through the GGSL program, they continue to give back to the youth who serve as their successors.
Travel players from 12U and older will offer close group instruction focusing on fundamental skill work through high energy, positive interactions. Younger players are expected to listen to the instructors, work hard in stations or during whole group instruction and give their best effort.
Friday night clinics are offered for girls in grades K-5 through the winter months (January, February, March) leading up to Rec season practices. The clinics take place at the GGSL travel facility, 1 Countryside Ln., Voorheesville. Each week one of our travel teams leads the participants in skill development, softball drills and general fitness fun. There is no fee to participate and all ranges of athletes are welcome from beginner to novice; it’s a great way to shake the winter blues!
Saturday Sluggers is an interactive, softball skill building experience for girls in grades K-4. Sluggers meet every Saturday morning of September from 9-10am at Keenholts Park to receive whole group and small group instruction on hitting, throwing, fielding, and running. Athletes also learn how to warm up and condition their bodies for proper softball participation and receive interactive instruction from one of our older GGSL travel teams. Spots are limited so it is first come first serve for sign-ups!
