Pocket Girls Softball (PGS) is a unique recreational softball organization in southern Sacramento that focuses exclusively on girls. Open registration will be held at the Robbie Water Pocket-Greenhaven Library from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Nov. 17.
Located in the Greenhaven-Pocket area, PGS strives to provide an opportunity for all eligible girls, 4-1/2 to 16 years old, to actively participate in an organized softball program. PGS stresses physical and mental development as well as friendship and sportsmanship.
The focus is on teaching the game, improving skill and having a positive environment. The team is part of the Northern California Girls Softball Association (NORCAL). The recreational league accepts every girl, regardless of skill level. Every girl plays in the Pocket Softball League.
Pocket Girls Softball was founded in the spring of 1969 when a group of concerned and dedicated parents organized a local girls’ softball league consisting of three mixed age teams. Now, more than 40 years later, the league has grown to encompass over 200 girls on more than 15 teams.
Pocket Girls Softball serves the Land Park/Pocket-Greenhaven/South Sacramento area.
