We are still taking nominations for the 2018-2019 SMGSA Board of Directors. Descriptions on each position can be found on the SMGSA website under the documents section. Nominations can be emailed to smgsa@smgsa.org. If you want a voice in how the league is run, joining the board is the best way.

Player tributes are on sale. These tributes will go into our end of season yearbook and the templates can be found on the SMGSA website under the documents section. Once you have completed the tribute, you can take it to Heasley Field on Friday or Sunday and look for Coach Fred or a table sat right outside the diner. Prices are:
1/4 page – $5
1/2 page – $10
Full page – $20

Hope to see you all out on the field this weekend.

    1/4 page – $5
    1/2 page – $10
    Full page – $20
    Payment is made when you turn the finished product at the table set up in front of the diner on Sunday’s.

Have a great Sunday!

Hello SMGSA,
It is that time of year where nominations for the 2018-2019 Executive Board are being taken. SMGSA relies on volunteers, from the Board to the Managers/Coaches to the Team Parent’s etc. Being on the Board is a great way to help make SMGSA successful and with over 300 girls this spring season, we are hoping for a good amount of nominations. Don’t hesitate to nominate yourself either! :)
Below is a link to the descriptions of each Board position with an approximate time commitment. The off-season is obviously the least amount of time needed while the spring season has the most. There are 19 seats needing to be filled which include:
President
Vice President
Secretary
Treasurer
Player Agent
Umpire-in-Chief
Registrar
Fundraising Officer
Field Maintenance Officer
Uniforms Officer
Equipment Officer
Snack Activities Officer (Diner)
Director of Coaching
Scheduler
Publicity Officer
Safety Officer
Special Activities Officer
All-Star Coordinator
Webmaster

Nominations should be emailed to smgsa@smgsa.org no later than April 30, 2018. Please include a phone number of the nominee. Voting occurs on closing day of the spring season and the new board takes over July 1st and runs through June 30th. When nominations are received, a member of the Nomination Committee will reach out to the individual to discuss what the position entails. Questions regarding all positions can be emailed to smgsa@smgsa.org as well.


VERY IMPORTANT… Any member of SMGSA is allowed to vote. Per the SMGSA bylaws, a member is defined as parents, guardians, managers, coaches, sponsors and board members. Voting is done electronically and a link will be emailed out to access the voting site. Email addresses for voting are pulled from the Registration website. If both parents or guardians choose to vote, both of their email addresses must be in the registration system as every email address can only cast one vote. To verify all parents/guardians emails are uploaded and/or correct on the registration website, visit https://active.leagueone.com/Olr/Pages/Welcome.aspx?ClubId=13577 and log on to view your profile.*

Announcement

Posted by Sierra Madre Girls Softball Association at Mar 27, 2018 11:24AM PDT

Good morning. Last night, the Umpire in Chief of SMGSA, Lynda Albright, resigned after serving 15+ years on the SMGSA board of directors. Lynda had three daughters go through the program and due to personal reasons, felt it was time to move on. On behalf of the entire SMGSA board, we’d like to thank Lynda for all the blood, sweat and tears she gave this league over the last two decades and wish her and her family all the best in the future.
