AGSA Families, Coaches and Players,
My name is Kenny Agan and It is with great honor that I send this message out to you today as AGSA is about to embark on its 2014 Spring Softball Season. I was fortunate enough to assume the President Position and all assigned duties from Jeff Brooks who has served the association well as President and on the AGSA Board. I hope I can keep the same level of service to you that he has done in the past. I want to welcome those parents who are considering joining our organization and thank all of the families who are current members.
AGSA will be having registration for new players only, in all age groups, to see if there is enough interest to fill some roster openings, as well as possibly create entire new teams. Last year, tryouts were held in the fall and teams were assigned based on those tryouts. As a result, those teams played together in the fall season and we are determining how many and which teams actually have open positions on their rosters. AGSA is trying to minimize the movement of players between teams which can be frustrating for all involved. However, it is our hope that we can give all of the girls who register in all divisions of the association the opportunity to play, but the association cant guarantee that will happen for your daughter's. What I can tell you is that we will thoroughly review the registration process before any decisions are made to see if we can accommodate each new player. Once this review is completed, the new player(s) will be contacted to advise them of the team and player status.
The focus of this association has been, and always will be, about giving every girl the opportunity to play softball. The opportunity to play is one that we all look forward to each year. However, the AGSA is much more than just softball for our players when you think about it. Our girls learn what it is like to be successful yet have to deal with failure; they learn how to lead and how to follow; how to support each other and most importantly what it means to truly be part of a team. l also want to encourage and invite all of the AGSA Families to become actively involved with our association and attend a board meeting or event. This is our association and we have some of the greatest players, coaches, board members and parents around and it is our hope to utilize these resources to promote AGSA.
Many might not know this, but the AGSA is one of the most successful softball organizations in Iowa. We are also fortunate that we have one of the best softball facilities in Iowa and a successful relationship/partnership with the city of Ankeny. One thing the AGSA must do is constantly evaluate the ways we coach our players as well as the way we do business. I firmly believe that by being open to these types of change, we can ensure that AGSA continues to grow and continues making opportunities for our players to develop and play a game that is loved by all.
If you ever have questions or need some type assistance, please dont hesitate to contact me or other members of the AGSA Board.
