 WELCOME TO PAL GAL SOFTBALL!

GIRLS, if you are between the ages of 5 and 16 and want to play softball, you should sign-up to participate in the Santa Clara Police Activities League’s PAL-GAL GIRL’S SOFTBALL Program. Everyone plays and the practices are local. Seasons generally run from March to May, with tryouts and practices starting in late January/early February.

Girls participate in softball games played at Central Park and Marsalli Park. Last year we had over 240 girls sign up for this program. Assignment to leagues is based on age, from T-Ball to Majors (ages 5-16).  PAL-GAL Softball is dedicated to teaching girls and young women the values and rewards that can be accomplished through self-determination, belief in one’s self, desire, teamwork and respect for others.
