Friendships Fun are Hallmarks of VGSL

Vienna Girls Softball League (VGSL) is dedicated to providing the chance for school age girls in Northern Virginia to play softball at all levels from recreational 6U to 18u as well as club softball and play at national tournaments.  VGSL was launched as the VPPL (Vienna Pigtail/Ponytail League) in the early 1960s by parents who wanted girls to have similar opportunities to boys for competition in athletics. There are no paid officers. Volunteers give hundreds of hours a season to coaching, readying fields, and carrying out the numerous duties required for the operation of the league.   While our  league is widely known for its “Select” or“Travel” teams that compete for state, regional and national championships, but it is our “House” league that is the heart of the VGSL. ​House league is where the girls learn to play and love the game.

The Vienna Stars.  The Nationally Recognized Stars program that competes against, and plays at the highest levels of Softball. Many Stars Players are selected All-Met and also are nationally ranked.  Many Stars players are focused on college recruitment and the teams travel accordingly.  


Velocity- regional/local travel.  These teams prepare players to compete at the high school and beyond with locally focused travel model for talented and hard-working players.


House Programs:

Of course our widely recognized HOUSE program provides superb opportunities to learn the game, improve skills and play competitive softball within our large league structure.

For example our 8u and 10u divisions may have upwards of 6 to 8+ teams in any season making for great intra-league competition.  12u,  MS and HS teams play vs other leagues, and may play a tournament depending on team desires.

For those wanting additional opportunities to play within the House Structure, VGSL has options such as "Raiders" for players who want "more".   Raiders teams hold additional practices for advanced skills development and also schedules more games including double-headers vs other select teams. 

By playing within the House league, you can also qualify for end of season tournaments and all-stars tournaments (during spring ball).

FALL SOFTBALL!!:   Registration is still open, but there is no guarantee of team placement request. 

Fall is more casual than Spring, and there is typically 1 practice and 1 cage a week, and games on Saturdays.  

Our recreations teams are formed by grade.  So whatever your daughters grade is this Fall, defines the "League" you play in. 

  • Kindergarten (aka 6u).  Cost is $60
  • 1st and 2nd Grade (aka 8u).  Cost is $60
  • 3rd and 4th Grade (aka 10u).  Cost is $95
  • 5th and 6th Grade (aka 12u).  Cost is $95
  • Middle School League (7th & 8th grade).  Cost is $95
  • High School League (9th thru 12th).  Cost is $95

Important:  Requests to "play up" or outside of the defined grade group divisions means that there are no guarantees of playing time nor position rotation as is given to players who play within the defined bands.  Our age bands are grouped naturally so that girls of like physical and social maturity are placed together.  Generally speaking, older players are not as keen to play with younger grades.  That is why we organize by Elementary School, Middle School and High School
