GREENVILLE GIRLS SOFTBALL ASSOCIATION, INC.
Welcome to the GGSA Official web site! Here you will find all sorts of helpful information about our youth softball program here in Greenville, Ohio.
GGSA is a Non-Profit organization that was founded in 1972. We are dedicated to providing recreational softball activities for over 500 girls in Greenville and the surrounding areas. GGSA offers all Darke County girls Slow-Pitch & Fast-Pitch softball for girls ages of 4 to 19.
In 2001 we moved into our new softball complex "Stebbins Field" located just north of Greenville, Ohio, on State route 49 N. This facility is privately owned by GGSA and was made possible through generous donations of individuals and business' and the annual fundraising efforts of our players and their families. It is thru this type of support and selfless dedication that Stebbins Field was built and continues to thrive today.
In 2008 construction began on a new permanent concession stand and restroom facility at the Stebbins Field complex. The more than 4,000 square foot building will provide the girls of Greenville and Darke County a facility to operate out of for generations to come.
In 2009 the 4 acre field extending directly south from the new concession stand was purchased with plans for future expansion with the possibility of two diamonds being built on the new land. The two additonal diamonds would open up the possibility to bigger tournaments and less scheduling issues for future GGSA and other community and organizational groups that regularly use the diamonds in support of GGSA.
In 2012 a major refurbishing of all four diamonds, including sod placed in all foul territories, warm-up circle cutouts, coaches box cutouts, fields leveled, and new material, Southern Red Rock, added to all four diamonds.
In 2013 it was the addition of the New Lady Wave Stadium at Stebbins Field. The Lady Wave Softball program, head coach Jarrod Newland, and the many supporters of Greenville Softball came together once again, this time to build a stadium style facility at Stebbins Field, the home of the Greenville Girls Softball Association & The Greenville High School Lady Wave Softball team. The new project included completely refurbishing diamond #3 and adding brick dugouts, a brick back stop with netting, press box, locker room, bullpen, and stadium style seating which will seat nearly 350 people just within the bleacher area behind home plate. The project is a great addition to Stebbins Field, the City of Greenville, Darke County, and the local softball community as a whole.
In 2015 diamonds #3 and #4 were lighted giving Stebbins Field a total of four lit diamonds which will help alleviate scheduling conflicts during league and tournament play. Eldora Speedway and general manager Roger Slack stepped up to the plate with a generous donation of 40 light fixtures. The famous Darke County racetrack formerly owned by the late Earl Baltes and owned now by motor racing superstar Tony Stewart were the first to donate to the project giving the project a real boost. The project was completed by midway through the 2015 season after The Coppock Hole Trust, Harry Stephens Fund, and 3-Way Electric contributed with major donations to the project.
Without the support of the Greenville and Darke County Community, GGSA would not be what it is today! The Stebbins Field Complex, Lady Wave Stadium, The Greenville Girls Softball Association, and the great softball tradition in Greenville is a direct reflection of the support given by the Greenville Community over the decades!
The current Officers and Trustees are committed and take very seriously the responsibility of maintaining the ballpark, the organization, and the tradition. Thank you!
All Darke County Girls Welcome
The Greenville Girls Softball Association continues to offer Slow-Pitch and Fast Pitch Softball to all Darke County Girls! Our organization is going strong and growing with over 550 girls participating throughout the summer and fall.
Slow Pitch is offered to all girls ages 4-19 years old. Leagues include Tee Ball, Munchkin, Minor, Junior, and Senior leagues.
Fast Pitch is offered to all Greenville girls and also girls outside the Greenville School District who are not offered to play in the Cross County Fast Pitch League that Greenville is currently a part of. Fast Pitch is offered to girls in grades, 3rd & 4th, 5th & 6th, and 7th & 8th grade. The Fast Pitch League is a traveling fast pitch league.
Girls may play both Slow Pitch and Fast Pitch and are required to only pay once OR participate in our annual fundraiser and meet the fundraiser goals.
GGSA also offers a Fall Fast Pitch League for girls ages 10 and under, 12U, and 14U years of age. The league has grown substantially in a short period of time and has become a regional event with girls coming from Darke, Preble, Mercer, Van Wert, and Montgomery counties in Ohio, and Randolph county in Indiana. Over 200 girls or 20 teams participated in the league in 2012!!
Stebbins Field plays host to many events each year including recreational slow-pitch and fast-pitch league tournaments, Fast Pitch All-Star/Rec Tournaments, Travel/Select Tournaments, Fall Fast-Pitch League, Charity Softball Tournaments, Adult Church League, and Adult Coed Leagues.
Please contact any officer with any questions concerning our leagues and tournaments. We look forward to having another great season!!! See you at the ballpark!
Our purpose is to provide an enjoyable, healthy, recreational activity for every girl in Darke County that will foster and promote softball competition among young girls. While developing the girl's athletic ability, the girls will learn the proper fundamentals of softball, the importance of teamwork, sportsmanship, and that winning is important, but learning to handle defeat is equally as important and builds self-confidence and reveals character.
Our programs are designed to promote the physical, mental, and spiritual well being of girls by teaching them the importance of teamwork, developing respect for others, and the application of the Golden Rule in human relationships. While the attainment of athletic skills and sportsmanship are encouraged, the real goal is to install values that will contribute to the future development of young women in the program.
Begins Friday, November 23rd
