Coaching a softball team is a rewarding experience that makes an excellent impact on both our BGFSA players and the community.  BGFSA coaches are expected to follow the mission and objectives of our program, and are the key drivers in creating an enjoyable and safe sporting experience while athletes advance their skills, sportsmanship, and fair play.
