Recreation is Tustin Girls Softball's main program. Players register and are formed into teams. All girls ages 4.5 to 14 years old are eligible to play.
- Every player in 6U-14U registered by deadline will get placed on a team (should TGS acquire the necessary parent-volunteer coaches).
- Every player is guaranteed playing time.
- Games are played locally or in neighboring cities. At the younger ages, most teams play in Tustin. In the older divisions, teams will travel.
- Costs are low. The total cost for insurance, uniforms, pictures, trophies, field maintenance, umpire fees, and overhead is paid with one registration fee each season with a small additional payment to your team parent for items such as socks, a team banner, hair bows, and your team party. There are no reoccurring monthly dues.
- No Paid Trainers. Recreation teams are coached by parent volunteers. (TGS and USA Softball provides training.)
- Registration for Spring begins in October and ends in early January.
- Teams are formed in January and practice typically begins in late January.
- The season is kicked off at our Opening Day with a parade of teams.
