Spring 2022 FAQ's

If you do not see your question below please feel free to submit your question to our Registrar at registrar@tustingirlssoftball.com.

1) Where are games and practices located?

During the Spring Season, practices and home games are held at Columbus Tustin Park (CT) located at 14712 Prospect Avenue (Irvine and Prospect) or at Tustin Sports Park (TSP) located at 12850 Robinson Drive. 6U games will be played at CT.  8U-14U games will be played at CT or in adjacent cities such as Irvine or Newport Beach.  

2) How often will the girls practice? How often are games?

The number of practice sessions each week depends on the age division. 6U will practice one night a week with a weekly game on Saturday. Upper divisions typically practice twice a week. Games are twice a week with one weeknight game and one Saturday game. A practice schedule will become available in late January once teams are formed.

3) Will there be any additional fees?

Each team usually collects a small amount of money at the start of the season to cover additional costs such as a team banner to display at games, team socks, hair bows, and the team party. This fee is usually about $40-50 per player.

4) Can I request a buddy or a particular coach?

Yes. The 6U division is grouped geographically, by coach request, and buddy request. We try as much as possible to have girls play with their friends.

TGS cannot accept buddy or coach requests for 8U-14U. Team equality is our top priority. Coaches draft their own teams. With that said, please make your requests to registrar@tustingirlssoftball.com and we will do our absolute best to oblige. 

5) How are the 8U-14U teams formed?

8U though 14U will start the season with an on-field evaluation in early January. All girls go through the evaluation process which allows the league to rate the girls’ skill level. These evaluations allow for teams to be evenly drafted by our coaches. Every girl who registered will be placed on a team. The drafting of teams takes place in mid-January and the coaches will contact their teams shortly thereafter.

6) What is provided in the league uniform?

The uniform that is provided by the league consists of a team jersey and pants. Sample uniforms will be made available to be sure your player orders the right size. Team moms will provide more information after teams are formed.

7) What equipment is needed?

The basic items your player needs are:

  • cleats (soccer cleats are acceptable in the younger age divisions)

  • helmet with an USA Softball approved face cage and chin strap

  • USA Softball approved bat

  • softball glove 

*Fielding face masks are highly recommended for pitchers and infielders.

The helmet can be purchased at any sporting goods store. The helmet must be worn while the batter is on deck, batting, or running the bases. The bat should come up to the child’s waist when placed on the ground next to the leg. To determine the weight of the bat, the child should be able to hold it parallel to the ground in one hand without much effort. The bat must be printed with the ASA or USA Softball approval. A glove should be able to close around the size of the ball used in the age division in which they play. The 6U and 8U Divisions use a 10” yellow ball. The 10U Division uses an 11” yellow ball. The 12U and 14U Divisions use a 12” yellow ball.

8) Can my daughter “play up”? 

Girls are typically placed in the division which represents their current age, however, sometimes adjustments are made to play up or down in unusual situations based upon skill levels or safety concerns. The TGS Board must approve any change in playing division and has the final decision. We recommend consulting president@tustingirlssfotball.com when deciding the best division for your player.  

9) What if I can't afford the fees for my daughter to play?

TGS offers a limited number of scholarships for financial hardships which are rewarded in order of receipt. Please review the scholarship application to see if you qualify. Completed applications should be emailed to registrar@tustingirlssoftball for consideration.

10) Does TGS offer a sibling discount?

TGS does offer a sibling discount. Our online registration system will automatically discount 10% off any additional siblings registered during the same transaction. Please contact registrar@tustingirlssoftball.com should you experience a problem.

11) Will I have to fund raise?

Yes. Our registration fees do not cover our annual operating expenses. This makes fundraising crucial to our league's continued success. Every family is required to fund raise. A $40 fundraising fee will be added to your cart at check out. Once the season starts, parents will be given 8 raffle tickets to sell at $5 a piece.

12) What is the TGS Refund Policy?

We understand that there are unforeseen circumstances which may lead you to decide to withdraw your player registration. Please keep in mind that this decision not only impacts the league financially, but it also affects team balancing and formation.

If a player requests a refund prior to team formation which occurs at the draft, they will be refunded their registration fee less a $25 processing fee. There are NO REFUNDS after teams have been formed.

13) What is the volunteer commitment?

We value our volunteers and depend on them to create the incredible TGS environment we hold so dear. Whether you volunteer your time coaching, prepping fields, being a team mom, or working the snack bar... YOU make a difference in our league. Each family must complete four volunteer hours per player.

TGS offers a "Buy out" program for Spring 2022. The buyout fee per player is $200.
