The Coastal Bay Girls Softball League is having a blast this year. Our local softball league, (formerly known as La Jolla Girls Youth Softball League) has relocated to the heart of the village and is thriving this year. With generous support from La Jolla Kiwanis, the Coastal Bay Girls Softball League has revitalized and upgraded the softball field at La Jolla Elementary School.
More than 200 young girls ages 5-14 have been playing girls fastpitch softball this season for our league.
We’re thrilled with our new location at La Jolla Elementary. It alone has attracted more players as well as spectators, and the parents have been very happy with our new location. Donna Tripi, the school’s principal, has been very supportive in our efforts to upgrade the softball field, hold weekday practices as well as Saturday games at La Jolla Elementary.
The recreational season ended last Saturday with closing day ceremonies. Up next is the All-Star season. Practices will begin in early May and our teams will compete through the end of June in various softball tournaments throughout San Diego County.
