CCGS and our history

Who We Are

Coconut Creek Girls Softball (CCGS) is a non-profit organization designed to give girls the opportunity to learn a great game, meet new friends and be in an enjoyable environment!

 

We are located in Coconut Creek, Florida and are dedicated to training our players to move through our developmental softball program.  Not only do we emphasize the fundamentals of the game, but we teach our athletes to portray positive attributes such as dedication, discipline, dignity, respect, leadership, self-confidence and community.

 

"Life like softball, will throw you curveballs, will present bad hops and will sometimes make you feel like you can't win, no matter what you do.  BUT, if you take the skills and traits you've learned - teamwork, initiative, intensity, support, and dedication - there is NOTHING you cannot achieve.”
