MISSION 

Kootenai Girls Softball Association (KGSA) is a volunteer-led organization in North Idaho  providing a fun and positive learning environment for players, coaches, parents, and umpires.  We are committed to teaching fundamental skills and knowledge of the game to equip the girls  in our local communities to keep advancing in competitive play. The league will put strong  emphasis on the following items: 

      a. Sportsmanship 

      b. Learning to be a good winner as well as a good loser 

      c. Developing the skills necessary to participate in softball at a higher level 

      d. Developing a winning attitude 

      e. Teaching the value of being a team player 

      f. Maintaining an environment in which all players, coaches, umpires, and spectators  can enjoy the game of softball 

KGSA will strive to provide the skills necessary for coaches, umpires, and players to progress  through the different levels of play by providing clinics and other training activities designed to  continually increase their skills and knowledge of the game. 

VISION 

KGSA will partner with other organizations in the area to elevate the level of play on local teams.  We want North Idaho to become known for excellence in fastpitch through a community of  cooperation elevating girls to the next levels of softball. The future of KGSA will be our  daughters teaching the next generation the game of fastpitch.
