Torrance Girls Softball League (TGSL) is a nonprofit organization based out of Torrance, California that is incorporated and affiliated with USA Softball.
The Fall Schedule for the rest of the season has been released. Use the link below to view the schedules (must be registered with SportsEngine to view).
The Los Angeles County Department Of Health (LACDPH) recently released updated guidelines for organized youth sports (http://www.publichealth.lacounty.gov/media/Coronavirus/docs/protocols/Reopening_YouthSports.pdf), recommending that all athletes and staff who are ages 12 or older and who participate in high-risk or moderate-risk sports (such as softball) must either be vaccinated against COVID19 or must show proof of a negative test result against COVID19 on a weekly basis in order to participate in youth sports. The order takes effect September 1st, 2021.
When the guidelines were first released on August 20th, 2021, the mandates were very restrictive and might have put our season in jeopardy. However, over the past few days, those restrictions have been loosened to where we are confident we can continue to have a safe season while conforming to the latest recommendations.
What Does This Mean To You?
For player/athlete(s) and volunteers that are ages 12 and older that are NOT vaccinated, the LACDPH recommends getting vaccinated. Optionally, weekly PCR or Anti-gen testing is available as an option for FREE throughout multiple site locations in Torrance or surrounding cities. Here are some available resources:
Overall, our goal has and always will be to do everything we can to continue to provide a fun and safe environment for our youth in the community to play softball at TGSL while also ensuring we comply with all required mandates by the County, City and School District.
Alternatively, if you are the parent/guardian of a player/athlete with age 12 or older, and do not feel comfortable agreeing with the recommendations made by the LACDPH, we will provide you with a 100% refund upon request for your player/athlete's registration. The deadline to submit your refund request is September 8th, 2021. You may e-mail your request at email@example.com.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns, you may e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
As always, we thank you for your continued support and we look forward to a safe and successful Fall Ball season at TGSL!
