Do I need to do volunteer work for the league?

NO snack bar work commitment requirement. This means you will not be required to work in the snack bar. The League will pay parents, high school siblings and prior CGFP players that are 15 years old before January 1, 2017 to work in the snack bar. Parents that work the snack bar have an opportunity to earn back a portion or their entire registration fee. For more details contact Michael Hall.

How long is the season?

The season starts in February and runs until the beginning of May.

I’d like to help as a coach. How do I do that?

As part of the registration process, you may sign up to volunteer your time as a coach. CGFP allows one manager and three coaches per team, however we encourage parents to help with practices. The more parents help in practice, the easier it is for the coaches to run a productive practice. CGFP encourages the moms to sign up as well for coaching positions.

Can I get a refund?

Full refunds for players withdrawn on or before tryouts; 50% on or before uniform distribution; no refunds will be given for withdrawals after uniform distribution.

Does my daughter have to attend assessments?

CGFP utilizes an on-line registration website. Please refer to our Registration page under the ‘Play’ tab on the toolbar.

Does my daughter have to get assessed for pitching?

Mandatory pitching assessment for all players that want to be eligible to pitch in the 2017 season. You must attend the pitching assessment if you want to be eligible to pitch in the 2017 season. Any player that does not attend the pitching assessment will be ineligible to pitch the entire 2017 season. No exceptions will be allowed.

Do you offer scholarships for players that are low income or can not afford registration fees?

Player may be entitled to further fee reductions for low–income families where the standard fee would result in a financial burden for the family. Complete and submit the CGFP Scholarship and Pay Plan application to apply.

Can my daughter play with her friends?

For the 6U division, we try to honor all player requests as part of the registration process. For the 8U division and above, we will accept only ONE request per player and filling the request is NOT guaranteed. Team equality is the priority in the 8U division. For the 10U division and above, CGFP utilizes a draft system in an effort to keep the teams more evenly matched.

Where, When & What days are practice?

Each team manager has their own scheduled practice days/times/locations.
