Welcome to the Home of
Brookhaven Girls Softball
Welcome to Spring 2020 Season!
Hello BGS Families!
Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful Holiday Season! With the New Year means softball season is right around the corner! I know it may seem like only January, but March/April will be here before we know it.
Let me introduce you to our 2020 Board of Directors. We have added some new names and some new positions. First, I am Apryl DePaolantonio and the new secretary. I have been active with BGS for quite some time now, and I am excited for my new role. Rob Kolb, our previous secretary has volunteered to be our Field Equipment Manager. Our new commissioner is a returning board member, Chris Essaf. This year we have added a Fundraising Coordinator, Liz Dougherty, who did a great job with our First Annual Cornhole Tournament, and also our Beef and Beer. (more on that in a bit!)
Our Full List of Current Board Members are:
Commissioner: Chris Essaf
President: Maryann Dougherty
Vice President" Amy Hertz
Treasurer: Jen Sullenberger

There is a $35 field maintenance fee added to every family registration. This is a refundable fee if a parent or guardian participates in one field day to help with clean up and maintenance. Field Days are scheduled for every Saturday in March and usually last from 9am-2pm. Field days are subject to change based on weather, we will send an update for each scheduled field day. Field days are very critical to get our fields in shape for our season to begin. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
If any parent or guardian would like to return or become a head or an assistant coach in 2020, please feel free to email me directly. Also, a separate communication will be sent out soon for a coaches meeting. All are welcome that are interested in coaching or helping with the league. Clearance and background checks are mandatory for all coaches.
Brookhaven Girls Softball is planning to continue to offer a t-ball program for ages 4 - 6/7. The rest of our teams above this age group will be travel teams in the following age groups: 8U, 10U, 12U, 14U, 16/18U. Travel teams will continue to be part of the Del Val League. This league is all within Delaware County. Again, the board discussed this decision and believe that participation in the Del Val League is the best option for our girls at this time.
Coming up is our Beef and Beer Fundraiser. This will be held on February 29th from 6-10pm at the Brookhaven Community Center. It is $25 a person or $40 a couple. To purchase tickets please contact me, or through our Facebook page, or by calling Liz Dougherty at 610-908-2103. Also, please let us know if you are willing to donate a raffle basket, or know anyone that would be interested.
I know that was a lot of information! Thank you for all your support of BGS, it is very appreciated. Stay tuned for further communication about our upcoming season. Don't forget to follow our Facebook page. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions.
