News and Announcements

Happy Tuesday SMGSA!
Hope everyone enjoyed their long holiday weekend. A few important announcements below…

  • We are in need of a manager for the Heasley Field Diner on Sunday’s. This is a paid position and the hours are from 10am to 8pm. Experience with food service and/or supervision is preferred. If you are interested or know anyone that may be interested, please contact our Snack Activities Officer, Sebastian Pulido at sebs83@me.com.
  • Uniform jerseys are due in this week. Our Uniforms Director, Glenn Chung, will be reaching out to all managers to arrange for them to be picked up. IF there is an issue with a uniform, please let your team manager know so that we can try and get it fixed ASAP. A reminder that the fall dues covered a jersey top. Black pants, socks, visor etc. would need to be purchased or reused from a previous season.
  • This Sunday is our first game day for fall. 6U-10U schedules have been posted for this weekend. 12/14U schedules should be posted by tomorrow morning. The rest of the season schedules should be posted by the end of this week or the beginning of next. Our apologies on the delay. We are waiting for a few other neighboring leagues to finish their schedules so they mesh with ours . Competitive teams should receive their schedules by tomorrow. Please contact your team manager with any questions.
  • If you are volunteering as a team manager, coach or team parent, first off, we thank you for your help. We do need a volunteer application and a copy of a state issued identification. The application is attached via a link below. Once these are filled out, they need to be scanned and emailed to our league Registrar, Sharon Pevsner, at sharonpevsner@gmail.com. IF YOU FILLED ONE OF THESE OUT THIS LAST SPRING SEASON, YOU DO NOT NEED TO FILL IT OUT AGAIN. Please just email Sharon and let her know who you are and that you were already cleared.

All for now. Looking forward to seeing everyone out on the field this Sunday.

  • We are still in need of a few managers for the fall season. If you are able to take on a team, please send an email to coaching@smgsa.org. We will also need assistant coaches and team parents so please note if you are able to do that when registering.
  • We’d like to take a second and congratulate the 2018 12U and 14U all-star teams. Both teams finished 3rd in the Southern California State Championship Games this past weekend in Lancaster. Playing multiple games in the elements of the Antelope Valley is very tough. Temperatures were in the triple digits and at times, the wind was blowing in excess of 25mph. The girls did a great job and made their league and city proud. More details on the tournament can be found on the SMGSA Facebook page.
