  • Highly recommended gear includes a batting helmet with face-mask. The league has a few helmets, but they are shared. Infield safety masks and a Bat.
  • Optional gear to be purchased by family includes batting gloves, belt, gear bag.
  • The league is open to all girls, regardless of financial situation. We typically host a Recycled Equipment Table at the beginning of the season. Please contact someone on the board if equipment costs are prohibitive for your family. We will find a way to discreetly get your daughter geared up.
  • The league has wholesale equipment accounts to help BHGS families save money on equipment purchases. Contact the league with any equipment questions from bats to gloves to cleats and much more. 

Additional Costs and Family Commitments (6U-12U)

  • End of season celebration / Coaches gifts - Some teams opt to have a year-end celebration party and/or collect donations for coaches' gifts.  These are optional fees, usually $10 to $20 per player.
  • Team Sponsor - Everyone on the team is expected to help find a team sponsor, a company that donates at least $300 for the season. Typically, sponsorship comes from a local business, team business owner, or corporate sponsors. The sponsor's logo is included on the team page in the yearbook. Although the league is dependent on sponsorships to operate (and keep fees low), families are never expected to "chip in" to cover this sponsorship if the team can't find a business to contribute.
  • Snack Shack - Parents are required to volunteer in the Snack Shack.  Games and practices will not begin until the Snack Shack has the necessary number of volunteers. The Snack Shack Coordinator works with the Team Managers at the beginning of the season to coordinate shifts.
  • Parent involvement - BHGS is a 100% volunteer-based organization. From the board to the coaches and team Managers, we are all volunteers. We cannot exist without your help. Parents are required to volunteer their time in some capacity including but not limited to, coaching, assistant coaching, being a team manager, game day field preps, cleanup and maintenance or Snack shack duty. Learn about volunteering on the Board page.
