With the recent decision to keep schools closed until May 4th, the LRGS Recreational season has been delayed until at least the week kids return to school. The LRGS Board of directors will be discussing this with local leagues in our area to hopefully come up with a solution for a schedule that will work. Please stay tuned for more information and we hope that all your families are staying safe!!!! We will update everyone as soon as more information becomes available!
(COVID-19 Update) 3-15-2020
LRGS Is a part of USA Softball and has aligned our statement with our governing body USA SOFTBALL
With the news of the increasing spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we wanted to inform you that we are taking this situation very seriously. Our hearts go out to those impacted by COVID-19, and we understand the critical importance of protecting those most susceptible to the virus. The safety and well-being of our communities continue to be the top priority for LRGS Softball. We are monitoring the situation closely, and we are advising the community to follow the guidelines set by the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), our state’s public health department (click here for a listing of state public health departments), and other county and/or local authorities including area school districts and government agencies.
We encourage all those that are actively participating in LRGS activities – including players, coaches, umpires, staff/volunteers, families, and fans – to follow the best practices as outlined by the CDC, which include washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (if soap and water are not available, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer); avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands; and avoid close contact with people who are sick. We would also encourage you all to limit close, physical contact with others (including shaking hands).
Also, if you are ill; have a fever, cough, or respiratory condition; have a compromised immune system; are in any other group that may be at an increased risk of contracting a virus-like COVID-19, or have recently traveled to a country listed on the CDC’s Risk Assessment by Country, we encourage you to refrain from LRGS Softball-related activities until cleared by your healthcare provider.
With the constant fluidity of the situation, LRGS will do our best to update you all via email, social media, and on our website. At this time with schools closing, we will not be holding any events until schools are back in session. LRGS cares deeply about all players and families in the community and will do our best to reschedule Evaluations and Events as soon as it is safe to do so.
Feel free to reach out to us with any additional questions and we will update you all as information become available to us.
Lakes Region Girls Softball (LRGS) is committed to providing a supervised and competitive softball program for the benefit of girls age 3 through 18 in the Lakes Region and beyond at all levels of skill and competitiveness. LRGS will promote the ideals of good sportsmanship, skill development, self-confidence, and fun so that our players can grow to portray the core life values of character, integrity, leadership and community both on and off the field. To achieve this goal, LRGS promotes a strong community comprised of a united and diligent board of volunteer directors; an extensive network of educated and committed coaches, instructors and support staff; and a vast array of volunteers from parents to community members all dedicated to promoting the sport of softball and the core values LRGS is built on. LRGS strives to provide a leading recreational program focused on skill development and fun as well as a highly competitive travel program providing greater levels of competitiveness and proficiency for those who want to strive for that as well.
Lakes Region Girls Softball was founded in 2009 by the three most important people in our history, Candice Murray, along with Melissa & Dave Smith! These three founding volunteers wanted to give girls of any skill level the ability to play and fall in love with the sport of softball.
LRGS has been a part of Babe Ruth Softball since our existence until 2017. During this time we became one of the largest softball leagues in the Lakes Region. In these first eight years, LRGS competed multiple State Championships, winning 1 and placing 3rd in Regional Events. LRGS also appeared in 6 District Championships, winning 4.
In 2017, the Board of Directors voted expand from Babe Ruth Softball, and partner with USA Softball. This change allowed LRGS to provide a competitive travel program while still maintaining our exceptional Recreational League we were originally known for!
During 2018, LRGS volunteers organized the creation of our CHAOS Travel Ball Program which to this day accepts players from all over and provides elite level coaching, training and tournament play.
