The Brampton Girls Softball Association has several important objectives for the operation of their House League:
- To provide a fun experience for all participants at every age level.
- To create an environment of competitive softball that every player can enjoy.
- To provide guidance to coaching staff that will assist them in teaching the fundamentals of softball.
- To make our House League as enjoyable as possible so that every player will return, year after year.

BGSA has implemented a detailed process to improve team balance in every division. One of the Convenor’s most important duties is to fairly divide the available talent, for the division that they represent, to ensure that we have an equal and competitive level of play. If a team does not win a game, or goes undefeated, we have not been successful.
Our process relies on accurate ratings of every player, every year. Coaches complete rating forms, provided with detailed instructions and guidelines on how to rate their teams. At the end of the season an All Coaches meeting is conducted for each division and all the ratings are discussed, adjusted if necessary and agreed to. The following year these ratings are used convenors/coaches to build and balance the teams. The process is not perfect but we are getting better and our satisfaction ratings have increased for this issue every year. For more information please contact: bgsaVP@gmail.com
