To our players' parents -
We welcome you to the DGIL softball family!
We always enjoy seeing the progress players make from week one to week 10. Many times for our own teams, we wish we had recorded their first practice so we can show the girls how much they have improved. While winning is great, we are more concerned with the girls working on their skills and techniques and having an enjoyable season. If they are not having fun, they are not going to want to continue to play.
At the end of the day, softball teaches more than just softball. As Jennie Finch said - "Softball has give me so much in life. It's taught me the kind of person I want to be." Being a team sport, it teaches communication, teamwork, respect, working hard, moving on from mistakes and more. As coaches and parents, we need to encourage the girls as we work with them on their skills.
Our Board is here to help our teams - coaches and players - as much as we can. We work very hard to try to make decisions in the best interest of the league. We are always looking for fresh ideas to help the girls to have fun while continuing to develop. If you would like to be part of a committee, please contact one of us for further information.
