December 2019

Hooksett Girls Softball League Newsletter

 

Winter Clinics

Great news!!  Hooksett Girls Softball is announcing the winter town hall gym schedule for pitching, catching and hitting lessons!!!

The HGSL is also happy to announce that we are now setup for online registration for these clinics.  Payment is now made via online credit card transaction and there will be small processing fee assessed by League Athletics (3.29% + $0.3).    If you have any questions about registering, please let us know at

You can register right from the HGSL newsletter either here or at hooksettsoftball.com.  This is how it will work:

Pitching lesson time slots are on Tuesdays at 5:30 pm starting on January 14, 2020 for the first 6 PAID players.  We will add a 6:30 pm time slot ONLY if we get enough additional players to sign up. For more information and/or to register click on one of the below links based on the birth year of your daughter:

Pitching - Birth Year: 2003 – 2008 – Click HERE - Registration is Full

Pitching - Birth Year: 2009 – 2010 – Click HERE - Registration is Full

 

Hitting lesson time slots are on Sundays at 5:30 pm starting on January 12, 2020 for the first 6 PAID players. We will add a 6:30 pm time slot ONLY if we get enough additional players to sign up. For more information and/or to register click on one of the below links based on the birth year of your daughter:

Hitting - Birth Year: 2003 - 2010 – Click HERE - Registration is Full

 

Catching lessons will be on Sundays starting on January 12, 2020 at 4:30 pm. Only 1 time slot is available for this lesson and is open to the first 6 PAID players. We are once again offering a ½ price special for catching!  For more information and/or to register click on one of the below links based on the birth year of your daughter:

Catching - Birth Year: 2003 - 2008 – Click HERE

Catching - Birth Year: 2009 – 2010 – Click HERE

 

* Our hope is that we can accommodate all those that want to participate in the lessons, but gym space and other factors sometimes don’t allow us to do that.  These clinics are non-refundable, however, the HGSL will refund your registration fee if registrations exceed the prescribed player number limits so that your daughter can not participate.

 

Season Registrations Coming Soon

We will soon be registering online this year for the upcoming spring 2020 season and we are proud to let you know that our tuition prices will not change!  As indicated above, League Athletics does attach a small fee to cover the cost of online credit card registrations.  Our hope is that the online registrations will make signing up your daughter(s) or softball an easier and more convenient process.

Registrations will be opening early in January and there will be more information forthcoming.  As an incentive to register early in January, we will be offering FREE indoor winter softball clinics on Tuesdays to all those who register during the month of January so don’t miss out!!! The pitching, hitting and catching lessons are catered for AAA and older, but the FREE softball clinics will be open to all ages! The plan is to divide up the players based on age and we will finalize the FREE clinics once we have a better feel for gym availability.  Stay tuned for more to come…

Big thanks to our HGSL Web Master Chad Alden for all the time he has volunteered to get us up and running with online registrations! 

Best,

HGSL
