Softball for Chalfont, New Britain, Doylestown & Warrington Area
Welcome to Lenape Valley Girls Softball
LVGS offers Intramural and Travel Softball Programs for girls (and women) from age 4 to 23. We are a 100% Volunteer Organization. Without volunteers to run the programs, the league can not exist.
Our home fields are at New Britain Township's North Branch Park, 207 Park Avenue, Chalfont, PA 18914. The fields (#1, #2, & #3) are located directly behind the New Britain Township Administration (and Police) building.
There are two Intramural softball seasons at LVGS. The Spring season which runs from late March through mid June; and our Fall ball program which runs from September to early November. Spring Intramural softball offers U6, U8, U10, U13, U14, U18, and U23 divisions. The Fall program is more limited offering U8, U10, U13, and U14 programs.
Travel Softball begins with tryouts in August. The teams practice and play games throughout the Fall, parctice through the winter, and have thier 'season' from late March through the end of July. The Lenape Valley Girls Softball Travel Teams are the "Fury". The cost of Travel is substantially higher than Intramural and requires a full time commitment to softball.
Throughout the year LVGS also offers Clinics for girls looking to improve their skills. Clinics are for girls 8+ years old. Fall and Spring Clinics are outdoors at North Branch Park. Winter Clinics are held at an indoor facility.
LVGS is a Member of ASA, the Amateur Softball Association. ASA breaks down divisions by 2 year age groups, based upon participants age as of January 1. The ASA divisions are U6, U8, U12, U14, and U18. Lenape Valley Girls Softball has expanded the U12 division to a U13 division for girls that enjoy Intramural but do not want to travel beyond North Branch Park. Our U14 program has only enough players, so we play teams from other communities like Doylestown, North Penn, Deep Run (Hilltown), etc.
If you have any questions about our program, or would like to make LVGS continue, please contact us.

Sunday Select Tryouts
LVGS Announces 2015 Sunday Select Tryouts

What is Sunday Select?
Is your daughter interested in playing softball at a higher competitive level? Sunday Select may be for her. Sunday Select teams will be fielded this year at the U-10 and U-12 levels for LVGS. Sunday Select teams play additional games each week against teams from the surrounding communities. This is a level above recreational softball, and often the precursor to travel softball. Our teams play in the Valley Inter-Community Girls Softball league (VIGS), which consists of local teams from Doylestown, North Penn, Deep Run, Harleysville and other surrounding communities within a 45 minute drive.
What is the commitment?
Teams play Sunday afternoon games beginning in mid-April through mid-June. Teams usually participate in a pre-season tournament and may compete in an end of the year tournament if offered. In addition to a Sunday game (or doubleheader), participants are also expected to attend Sunday Select practice which would be in addition to, but not conflicting with, their in house team. Players must participate in the LVGS recreational league in order to be considered for a Sunday Select team. NO travel players are permitted to play Sunday Select.
What is the cost?
There is a fee of $125 for those players chosen for the 10U or 12U Select team. The fee covers the cost of an additional uniform, umpires at home games and tournament fees.
When are tryouts?
Tryouts will be held at PSC Highpoint on:
Sunday January 18th
3:00-4:00 for U-12 those trying out as a U12 pitcher should plan to stay until 4:30
