Dear Softball Families,
First and foremost, we hope this email finds you and your family healthy and safe. The board last communicated that we would meet on 3/20 to determine next steps. Though softball may be the furthest thing from the minds of many of our families, the board wanted to honor the commitment we made to communicate with you.
All league activity will remain suspended through 4/7. Given all that has quickly changed, it is still too early to know for certain if/when/how we will have a season. The board will meet virtually again in early April to determine next steps.
Within the recommendations and orders of our county and state, we encourage your player(s) to stay active where possible. The internet is full of resources on conditioning and drills. For softball specific information, searching for drills endorsed by USA Softball and its players and coaches can be helpful in sifting through large amounts of information.
Though league activity has stopped, league planning continues. We are at a pivotal time in the history of CGFS. When play starts again is uncertain at this point, however, the league will proceed with board elections (virtually if necessary) at the beginning of May. We encourage any of you who want to help make a difference at a greater level and impact the direction of the league at this inflection point to consider serving on the board. Current members are happy to answer any questions you may have. For names and email addresses, please see: https://www.campbellfastpitch.com/page/show/1600826-board-of-directors
We believe it is well said by the Commissioner of USA Softball of Northern California, "In effect, these decisions are not in our hands at this moment in time. We need to adhere to the recommendations, and in some cases, the orders, of our local and state officials. Softball will be on hiatus for as long as it takes until such time as our lives in general start getting back to normal…..Please continue to take care and let's make sure the softball community is among the leaders when it comes to doing the right thing for the health and safety of our local jurisdictions."
From the CGFS board, all the best to your family as you navigate these times. Please stay healthy and safe.
The CGFS Board

Softball in Campbell and West San Jose, started in 1974 with Campbell Bobby Sox and evolved to the formation of Campbell Girls Fastpitch Softball in 2005.
Campbell Girls Fastpitch Softball has the goal of teaching girls aged 5-13 life lessons in competition and teamwork, while learning the fundamentals of softball and developing valuable relationships that last a lifetime.
The league is one of a few outdoor sports organizations in the local area that focuses on empowering girls through teamwork, competition, sportsmanship and confidence. The league typically has over 200 players and is an entirely volunteer managed, 501 (C) non-profit. The parent volunteers provide their time to improve, manage and maintain our league at Forest Hill Elementary School.
