The 2019 Northwest Girls Softball Opening Ceremonies is scheduled for February 23rd. This year Opening Ceremonies will be a little different. Here are the details:

Opening Ceremonies

Opening Ceremonies will be 9:00a-10:00a. All girls need to be with their teams and ready for the parade of teams by 8:45a. Teams will enter in alphabetical order per division.

Team Pictures

Every team has been given a time slot for pictures on field 5 throughout the day.


Every team has been given a time slot for Bat-A-Thon. Every girl will be given 25 pitches to try to raise funds to help our league. These funds go to keep our fees down in future seasons by paying for field/light fees, maintenance fees, etc. Every girl should already have their Bat-A-Thon envelope and be getting pledges. $30 must be raised for eligibility to try out for AllStars. $100 in pledges will get you a hoodie and there will be other prizes given out for different lower amounts. Any amount over $100 will get even more prizes and will be mentioned on our Facebook page. Any girls that get a perfect 25 score and raise some funds on their Bat-A-Thon will be entered into a drawing for an extra super cool prize! Any team that gets 100% participation in the Bat-A-Thon will get PIZZA delivered to a practice!

Team Basket

Each team is responsible for getting a basket ready for the Basket Raffle (minimum $20 value). Please donate whatever you can to this really fun and creative new idea to help our league. Baskets can be themed or not, whatever you come up with will be great!  Please have the basket wrapped in cellophane and bring to the Umpire room prior to 830a! Have fun with this project. We can’t wait to see what you all come up with! Raffle tickets will be on sale for $5 ea during the day.


Each team has been given a time slot for a carnival game. There needs to be 2 representatives for your shift, which are generally one and a half hour shifts. Please be sure to be on time to replace the volunteer before you! All girls can play games during their time between other activities.

The Entire Board is so excited to be bringing such a fun day to NWGS. Special thanks to Jessica Garibay, Amber Exley, and Adrianna Lowy for all the time they put into making this Saturday the huge success we know it will be!
