Girls Fastpitch Softball is an educational organization
committed to giving all eligible girls, regardless of race, color, creed
or athletic ability the freedom to explore the game of softball.
Team activities instill in them the attributes that will make them better
citizens of the United States of America. This exploration takes
the form of programs devoted to excellence, in the areas of Citizenship,
Friendship, Leadership, Sportsmanship and Scholarship.
The emphasis in Girls Fastpitch Softball is on playing
the game and having fun. Playing makes everyone feel like a winner
and girls develop physically, spiritually and emotionally. The softball
field is a platform upon which children can perform for their parents,
relatives and friends in healthy and productive ways. The Girls Fastpitch tradition offers a value orientation for the participants insuring
a respectful, ethical commitment that views all levels of athletic ability
Girls Fastpitch Softball provides parents and adults
in the community with education and information that will enhance their
opportunity to serve in a program dedicated to excellence. The program
focuses on family values to strengthen the moral character of children,
families and the communities in which they live, thereby forwarding American
ideals. This agenda encourages girls to actualize their gifts and
talents and develop the intellectual and physical competence necessary
for informed and concerned citizenship.
The objectives of the Girls Fastpitch Softball educational
program, therefore, encompass the development of team affiliation, a receptivity
to other people, and the acquisition of the knowledge, skills and values,
both personal and communal, necessary for the benefit of all girls and
their families to live successfully in American society.
