ONE GIRL’S SOFTBALL PROGRAM IN RIDGEFIELD
To the Parents and Girls who have played Little League softball or Ridgefield Rebels softball:
After working for several years to improve Girl’s Softball in Ridgefield, we are excited to announce the formation of Ridgefield Girls Softball, Inc. (“RGS”,) a new organization that will provide for one girls’ softball program in Ridgefield. Little League softball parents and Ridgefield Rebels parents have been working for the last three months to make one Ridgefield girls softball program a reality. The Boards of Little League and the Ridgefield Rebels have approved this combination and Anthony DeStefano, a parent from the Little League side of the combination, will be the new RGS president.
RGS is a non-profit organization run by volunteers and we will rely on the commitment of parents and other adults to fill our Board, coaching and administrative positions. RGS will include both a recreational division (the “House League”) and a travel division (“Rebels Travel”) and is open to all girls between the ages of 5 and 18.
Any Ridgefield girl who wishes to play recreational softball will be placed on a House League team at the appropriate age bracket regardless of skill. Rosters for Rebels Travel teams will be selected based on skill level and commitment. Rebels Travel will field at least one team at each of the 10U, 12U, 14U and 16U levels (ages 9-16).
The House League will play in the Spring and most of its games will be played in town but will travel to surrounding towns to play teams based in those towns. Rebels Travel will play in the Spring and Summer and their games will be single games or double headers both in town and throughout Fairfield County as well as tournament play in Summer.
By having one organization dedicated to girls’ softball in Ridgefield, we want every girl to have the ability to play softball at the competitive and commitment level that is comfortable for her and her family.
Our goal is that every girl who plays on one of RGS’s teams will become a better softball player, teammate and person by the end of each season. Simply put, RGS is all about the girls and giving each of them a quality athletic program to help them become more than just better softball players.
