Please register for the division that corresponds with your child’s age

  • After completing registration, please email BDGSA President with your written play up request.
  • Play up requests will not be reviewed until full registration closes and division numbers meet requirements.
  • Those approved to play up are responsible to pay the difference in registration fees (if any).

Special Requests:
Requests to have siblings play on the same team are the only requests that will be guaranteed.

  • Coaching requests are not permitted except under extenuating circumstance.
  • Team balancing is the primary concern and will take precedence over special requests.

I would like to coach. Is this possible?
New Coaches - please let us know you are interested via the volunteer section of the registration process. All individuals wanting to be a Head Coach will need to complete a Coaches Registration. Once received, you will be sent a volunteer letter. Take this letter to your local police service to have your record check and vulnerable sector screening completed. Please allow 4-6 weeks turn around. Once completed please email form to bdgsa.vphouse@gmail.com

Returning Coaches - if you already have a Record Check on file, you will need to complete an “annual offence declaration form” which we will make available to you.  

Coach Commitment - Coaches must commit to attending both the game night and the divisional practice night (if applicable) as well as Event Day.

Volunteering Information:

 The BDGSA relies on volunteers to keep registration costs down and, therefore, requests a volunteer commitment from every registrant. We have many different ways you can help out. Alternatively, you are also able to “buyout” of your volunteer commitment at a cost of $35 per player/family

How can I register?
Any time after 9am January 6, 2024, visit our website at https://bdgsa.sportngin.com/register/form/806608242

NEW in 2024 – All payments will now be completed through the website.

"Signup for Alerts" during the registration process to receive information regarding registration, updates, cancellations, schedules changes, etc. This is how we update all parents and players throughout the year. 

Is there a discount if I register more than one player?
Yes. The BDGSA offers a $10 discount for the second child and any children thereafter.

What is your refund policy?
The BDGSA will issue a full refund less administrative, insurance and uniform fees prior to May 30th with a written request.

  • No refunds will be issued after May 30th. Exceptions may be required due to injury or illness.

Our Goal

The goal of the BDGSA Softball Programs is to ensure all players have a rewarding, memorable, safe and fun experience while participating in our programs. Providing a safe environment is a collaborative process. We ask that parents/guardians/coaches/spectators adhere to the guidelines below and we ask that you also share the following league guidelines with your child/ren:

Respect others and their property

Hands off

No bullying behavior by players, coaches or parents

Listen to the coaches/team managers

Stay with the team while at the ball park

Use appropriate language at all times (this applies to everyone)

HAVE FUN!

If the above guidelines cannot be met, the BDSGA Executive will follow up to address concerns. Parent, coach, and/or player conferences may be required to address concerns at any time during the season.

** Physical or emotional aggression towards another person or oneself (by anyone) may result in a temporary or full suspension from the league. **
