NGSSA was founded in the Northshore area near Seattle in 1971 by a group of volunteers with the vision to provide the opportunity for girls of all ages in our community to play and enjoy softball. NGSSA is still staffed by volunteers who enjoy working to continue this tradition. For 48 years, thousands of girls have participated in the NGSSA.

Who We Are

We are all parents of players here(past and present), and none of this would be possible without the amazing group of volunteers that we have to keep this league going for the last 52 years!
