GVSA Frequently Asked Questions

What are the different leagues?

GVSA has a variety of leagues for men, women, and coed. The Men's Leagues have three different Divisions. Men's C is for very competitive teams who have been together for many years and have placed at D State. Men's D is for competitive teams with experience. Men's E is for teams who are just starting out or are not as competitive. There is also a Masters +40 league, which requires all of the players to be 40 years of age.  For Women, there are is a C division and a D division. The teams from both divisions play each other during the season. Finally, there is a co-ed league with four divisions. Co-ed C is for competitive teams who have been together for a while and have placed at D State. Co-ed D is a very competitive league where both the women and men are very experienced. Co-ed E1 is comprised of teams that have some experience, but have a few players who are new to softball. Co-ed E2 is for teams who are playing for recreational purposes and who have many players without softball experience. We encourage new teams to discuss what type of players they have with one of the Player Reps before signing up for a division.

What are the Fees?

There are two types of fees. The first is the Sponsor Fee, which is $710 for Men's Leagues who play two times a week and $560 for Women's Leagues, Co-ed Leagues, and Master's Teams that play one day a week. The Sponsor fee is due at the time the team registers for league play. For the 2014 season, the due date for the Sponsor Fee is April 23, 2015.

The second type of fee is the Player Fees. For teams that play two times a week, Player Fees are $50 per player. For teams that play one time a week, the Player Fees are $35.00 per player. Player Fees are due the first week of June. More information on the process of paying Player Fees will be posted on the website and at the Complex.

It is requested that each player on the team have a shirt with a number on the back. These can be as simple as a plain t-shirt with sponsor names and a number on the back. This helps the score keeper keep track of players.
