New Aberdeen softball group forms


The newly formed Aberdeen Girls Softball Association will begin registration this weekend.

Registration sessions are planned from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday and 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Feb. 20 at the main entrance to Aberdeen High School.

The Aberdeen Girls Softball Association was formed late last year to operate independently of other organizations. It serves girls in the 5-6 to 14-U age groups.

A previous Aberdeen softball association was affiliated with Aberdeen Little League.

Practices are scheduled to open April 8, with games beginning in early May. Aberdeen teams will be members of the Coastal Fastpitch League, which includes teams from Montesano, Elma, Willapa Harbor and the South Beach area. All home games will be played at the Bishop Athletic Complex.

The registration fee for the T-Ball League that encompasses girls in the 5-6 age group is $25. That division will play 6-8 games.

Fees are set for $35 for the 8-U and $60 for the 10-U, 12-U and 14-U age groups. The 8-U group will play 10-12 games, with 12-14 games set in the older age groups.

The registration process, including the payment of fees, can be completed by visiting the organization’s website, www.agsawa.org. The organization also maintains a Facebook page at www.facebook.com/aberdeengirlssoftball.
