Torrance Girls Softball League (TGSL) is a nonprofit organization based out of Torrance, California that is incorporated and affiliated with USA Softball.
Hello TGSL Parents,
We wanted to keep you updated with where we currently stand as it relates to the upcoming Spring Season at TGSL.
The California Department of Health (CADPH) recently loosened their restrictions on youth and recreational sports!!!
Based on their recommendations, as posted at https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/Pages/COVID-19/outdoor-indoor-recreational-sports.aspx, competitive games as it relates to youth sports (including Softball) can now be played effective February 26, 2021, as long as the Adjusted Case Rate for COVID cases in Los Angeles County falls below the required threshold. As of February 23rd, Los Angeles County fell below that threshold!
In addition, the Los Angeles County Department of Health (LADPH) also followed suit and supported the guidelines from the State by releasing an update to their Reopening Protocol on February 24th (http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/media/coronavirus/docs/protocols/Reopening_SportsLeagues.pdf), indicating that competitive games are allowed as long as COVID safety measures continued to be followed, along with certain restrictions detailed in the document in the link above.
This is obviously outstanding news for our youth, our parents, our volunteers and our league, who have all been eagerly awaiting for the return of some normalcy in our communities since last Spring.
Next steps - because we participate on Torrance school property, we are still awaiting word from Torrance Unified School District (TUSD) but we also expect TUSD to follow suit in supporting competitive play and LADPH's guidelines in the coming days.
Hence, please make note of the upcoming key dates below as the season is upon us!
Sunday, February 28th - Last Day To Register For The Spring Season. If you haven't done so already, or know someone on the fence, now is the time to register. Registration closes this weekend!

All players who are registered for the Spring Season in the 8U, 10U, 12U and 14U Divisions (6U is exempt and not required to evaluate) MUST attend the mandatory player evaluation sessions on this date. The TGSL Board of Directors will be sending out a sign-up link to all registered players and parents via e-mail and will also announce on our website for sign-up during the 1st week of March.
