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.

SANTA CLARA SPARKS TOURNAMENT TEAM INFORMATION
The Santa Clara Sparks are Santa Clara PAL-Gal Softball League’s competitive summer travel ball teams for 8U, 10U, 12U and 14U. The Sparks players are selected from girls playing in SC PAL-Gal spring recreational season and teams are formed after the player tryouts in May. These teams play competitive softball, competing in weekend tournaments with teams from other softball leagues. The Sparks teams are a great way for girls who love softball to experience what competitive softball is like. The players will develop new skills and take their game to a new level. It is more serious… but still great fun and an experience that they’ll never forget. Check out the flyer below for tryout dates and more information about the teams.
