We are the local Amateur Softball Association (ASA)-sanctioned organization that oversees the Carmel and Carmel Valley, CA recreational softball league for girls 14 years old and under.
Operated by a volunteer Board of Directors, CCGS is responsible for the creation and maintenance of the fun, safe, and competitive softball program available to all the girls of our community. We coordinate with other local communities, including Marina, Monterey, Salinas, Seaside and Toro Park, to provide intercity recreational play, as well as end-of-season Playoff and All-Star tournaments. All divisions play home and away games.
We are the exclusive softball-only league on the Monterey Peninsula. All the other local communities against which we play operate in combined baseball-softball organizations. This allows the CCGS to focus all of our efforts and resources on building the best girls softball program with the finest facilities in the area.
Our home fields are at Carmel Middle School in the mouth of Carmel Valley, set against the beautiful backdrop of the Santa Lucia mountains.
Our primary goal is to create an opportunity for fundamental skills development in a positive, supportive, friendly, safe and, most importantly, fun environment for every player in our league.
