All Coaches and Assistants

The LGSA and the State Of Ohio require that all coaches and assistant coaches complete an approved concussion awareness training course.  This is a free online course and takes about 30 minutes.  Please follow this link for the course http://www.cdc.gov/headsup/youthsports/training/index.html.  Once completed, please be sure to send a copy to us or to your division coordinator.  This must be completed before the start of the season.  This is a very serious issue in youth sports.  Please help us keep our children safe!

About Us:                        
The LGSA is a non-profit & 501C3 certified entity.  The LGSA consists of a 100% volunteer board/members (of 10-17 members) donating their time and effort to support and promote youth softball in the Lancaster area.  The LGSA hosts 2 yearly recreational youth softball seasons, several all-star tournaments & 4-6 travel softball tournaments each year.  With over 60 rec teams and close to 700 players every year, the LGSA is a LARGE operation. Coed ages 4-6 & Girls from the age 7 through 18 participate in the LGSA.  During the Regular LGSA season, the LGSA League tournaments plus our travel tournaments the LGSA will host over 800 softball games yearly. 
                         
ASA Insured & Sanctioned:                    
The LGSA, it's teams and players are insured and sanctioned under the ASA (Amateur Softball Association).  The umpires used are also certified ASA umpires with years of experience.
                         
LGSA Complex(s)                      
Martens Park and Lancaster Parks & Rec has hosted the LGSA for over 20 years. The concession stand, shelter house, outfield fences, split rail fence, side fences, backstop improvements, dugouts, paving of dugouts, scoreboards, sponsor board, storage buildings, electrical improvements have all been paid for and put in place by the LGSA.  The LGSA has it's own diamond "rig", tractor, golf cart and many pieces of field maintenance equipment. This enables games to be played at Martens when other parks cancel.  This is done with proceeds from registrations, tournaments and the concession stand proceeds.  It should be noted that once improvements are completed they become property of the City of Lancaster Parks Department.  We also have limited access to Maher Park, Miller Park and Mary Burnum Park Fields.
