SOFTBALL CLEATS 


 

Metal Cleats are not allowed at West Valley Girls Softball. Standard rubber softball cleats only.

 

BATTING HELMETS


ALL batting helmets are required to have a chin strap and face masks.

PITCHER FACE MASK 

West Valley Girls Softball has made it mandatory for all pitchers to wear protective face masks. WVGS believes that this is a step in the right direction to protect our players.

WVGS will supply one face mask to every team. Face masks are also available at your favorite Sporting Goods Store for those who would like their own mask.

Helmets and Face masks should have the following certification mark.

 

JEWELRY NOT ALLOWED!

 
Remember, players are not allowed to wear jewelry during games. This includes earrings, bracelets, and necklaces. This is an ASA Rule. Umpires will not let any player play if they are wearing jewelry. 

There is one exception, Medical Alert Bracelets. Per the ASA Rule Book:
"Medical alert bracelets or necklaces are not considered jewelry. If worn, they must be taped to the body so the medical alert information remains visible."

WVGS thanks you for your cooperation!
