CIRCLING THE BASES
Letter From The President - February 1, 2021
Dear Player & parent,
On behalf of Danvers Girls Softball, I would like to welcome you to 2021 DGS season. Our program is for girls attending Danvers schools, from pre-k through 8th grade. Unfortunately, we had to cancel the 2020 Spring season due to COVID. We were able to have a successful summer and fall league to replace it. There were COVID protocols that we adhered too, and had zero instances. The Spring season will certainly be met with safety protocols. We are forced to re-roster all divisions, and re-draft the Minor & Middle School Divisions this year, due to the missed season. To help us understand how may players we will have, it is imperative after receiving this communication, you register early. The season will have a cutoff, and we will not be able to accommodate late signups. To that point, there is a deeper early registration discount, and a steeper late fee.
Our program is designed to keep players in middle school together, and at the elementary school level, players are in two grade groupings.
DGS will continue to use mobile technology to communicate updates. The Danvers Girls Softball mobile app is available for iPhone & Android. You can download the free app and enjoy real time communication for rainouts, updates & field changes. The app will also have all schedules, standings, scores, rosters, and spontaneous discount events.
There will be tryouts for the Minor League & MSL Divisions. The tryouts will be for all playing, and all will be rostered. The tryout dates will be in March, and based on COIVD restrictions, will most likely be split within divisions by last name spelling. Watch the website for info, and email communications will be sent out.
The 2021 season registration fee is $110 for Junior through the MSL Divisions, $65 for T-Ball & $45 for Pre-K Fundamentals. Online registration continues for 2021. Visit to register your player online utilizing a major credit card. Registrations utilizing the check option are only accepted once DGS receives the check.
DGS has tiered pricing for 2021. Our primary challenge every year is getting registrations complete. Prompt registration allows the league to set teams, assign coaches and maximize player rosters. This insures more instruction and increased play time.
*There is a $15 processing fee for all cancellations or refunds.
* DGS will be closing each league as predetermined team player counts are filled. Please register ASAP.

I would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation and support as DGS moves into another exciting new season. The board of directors take each season seriously. Our ultimate goal is to provide a safe environment where players can have fun and learn the game with spirited competition. We look forward to another tremendous season!
President, Danvers Girls Softball
