Free Pre-Season Softball Practice

Posted on: April 3rd, 2016 by mkaufman

GMSA is hosting an indoor pre-season practice for softball players in minor mite, mite and squirt next Sunday April 10th from 1-3pm at John McCrae PS.  It is an opportunity for the kids to come out and get ready for the season.  Please see the attached flyer.

I had a great time helping a couple mite girls practice their pitching Saturday morning.  We taught them some great drills that they can continue practicing at home.  I hope we can get more kids out next week, to make use of the facility.  If we get enough response we can break it into two one-hour sessions.

GMSA Has A New President

Posted on: November 23rd, 2015 by mkaufman

As was stated in a prior post, Denise has stepped down as President of GMSA after many years.  The newly-elected board took this position very seriously and took their time deciding on how to fill it.  The Executive Board of GMSA is happy to announce the new President of the Association:  Shelley Irwin.  Shelly has been involved in GMSA for many years herself, starting when her now-17-year-old daughter was in T-Ball and following her through the Rep side.  Shelley joined the Board a number of years ago and has held a few different positions, including House League Vice President.  You can find her contact information on our Contacts page if you would like to reach her. We look forward to the new season ahead of us and we are excited to see what this new Executive Board can bring to the Association, to players, to parents, and to the community.
