Welcome to Colonie Girls Softball
Hi folks, as of August 31, 2020 I will no longer be president of this organization. 2020 was a tough time for us, but, 2021 will be better. Below you can review the plan and let us know if you have any questions.
Also, we need your help to spread the word, as the schools are closed and we have limited access to student contact information.
As a reminder, please continue to register your child(ren) so that we have a firm count for the league, so we can organize teams, and purchase uniforms.
Finally, please be sure to support our sponsors (check sponsor listing) during this time, and be sure to thank them for there continued support of our girls.
Michael Naylor, Former, President of the Board of Directors
