What are the differences between Leesburg Girls Softball (LGSL) and Loudoun Girls Little League Softball (LGLLS)?

  • Rules – LGSL aligns its rules and structure to support a natural progression from house league to all-stars to travel and then into High School and College.  Little League’s rules differ greatly from local HS and college competitive rules.  LGSL has a close partnership with Heritage High School as well as the other Leesburg area High Schools.  Many of our players go on to play at the High School level.

  • Boys/Girls – Leesburg Girls Softball was established in 1997 for the distinct purpose of providing a fun, high-quality softball league for the girls of the Leesburg area.  Little League was originally established to grow the love of baseball and serve boys in local communities.  For over 15 years, LGSL has built a community of people who are passionate about teaching girls of all abilities to play softball.

  • Travel Players – Based on years of experience and feedback from travel players, parents and team managers we at LGSL feel that it is detrimental to require our travel team players to “play down” in the house league.  At LGSL our house league coaches are able to focus on each player to help her develop the core fundamentals of the game that will instill confidence.  Our top house league players have an additional opportunity to play on “All-Star” Freedom teams each year.  By having their travel teams play at the house level, Little League distracts attention and time from players who are learning the game.  LGSL believes that all girls have the right to play, learn and excel as softball players on the field and in life!

  • Live in Leesburg- Play in Leesburg! – All of the LGSL Board Members live in Leesburg!  Most of our LGSL house games are played right here in Leesburg at some of the most beautiful fields in the nation—Freedom Park and Bolen Park.  Loudoun Girls Little League is based in South Riding with a smaller number of players in Leesburg.  Little League teams are not permitted to play teams outside of their organization, so many games are played in South Riding.  Girls who want to play close to home play for LGSL!

  • Loudoun County Softball Alliance – LGSL’s partnership with the Loudoun County Softball Alliance gives us a continuous pulse on the softball community locally, regionally and nationally.  This partnership also allows all the leagues involved to offer a consistent, quality, high level of competition between our leagues.  We share knowledge and best practices to ensure we all deliver the best softball experience possible for all Loudoun County residents conveniently in their own communities.  

  • Board of Directors – LGSL has a fantastic Board of Directors committed to growing our league and the love of softball in Leesburg and Loudoun County.  We are very passionate about our sustainability in the softball community.  The LGSL Board has complete control of the programs we support and the philosophies we feel are beneficial in the development of our girls.  This passion and consistent control allows the player to continue developing her softball skills in a natural progression all the way to college and beyond.  At LGSL we have an appropriate program to serve ALL girls ages 4-18 no matter the ability or skill level.

We'll see you at the ballpark this Spring!
