Another Successful Fall Ball Season Is in the Books

Six weeks of Sunday Fall Ball games are over for 2014, but the memories and experiences will help build stronger softball players for many seasons to come. Players, coaches and parents took advantage of the fall games to meet new teammates, try new positions, learn the rules, and develop their skills in a fun and relaxed game format. Thanks for playing!

Considering Softball?  See Our 6U Program in Action!

If your family is considering joining OGSL, check out the following video which offers a glimpse of our approach to coaching and play.

The video was created by OGSL parent Bill Swan and records the exploits of one of our spring 2013 6U teams, Flower Power.  It highlights OGSL’s emphasis on positive coaching, fun, teamwork and skills development and also gives an idea of the level of play in our lowest age division.

As the girls rise through the age divisions, they become more skilled and the coaching gets more detailed, but a positive approach remains a league requirement.

The OGSL community is amazing, and we invite your family to be part of it.

Arnold Kelly Scholarship Fund

In December, 2012, OGSL lost one of its most devoted supporters and volunteers.  Arnold Kelly was an inspiration to hundreds of OGSL kids and parents, and volunteered his services to OGSL for over 12 years as parent, coach, Umpire coordinator, Fields coordinator, announcer, and all-around great guy. An education fund has been established for Claire Kelly, Arnold’s youngest daughter. Donations can be made to the Claire Kelly Fund, c/o the Foster Family, 6841 Estates Drive, Oakland 94611. OGSL has also announced the creation of the Arnold Kelly Scholarship Fund, which will provide two $1,000 college scholarships each year for OGSL players in the current 12/14U division.  These scholarships will be paid upon registration for college.  Access the application HERE —  Arnold-Kelly-Scholars-Application-2013 Applications must include a recommendation by the 2013 player’s head coach, and a recommendation from someone in the community (not a parent/guardian) who can attest to the player’s commitment to community involvement, teamwork and leadership qualities, and/or academic effort.  Applications MUST BE SUBMITTED BY MAY 1, 2013.
