quality time with your child during these very
important years. We know that most of us lead
very busy lives and it is difficult to find time,
but it is worth the effort and you will not
regret it. Volunteers are needed for the

CODE OF ETHICS
We must keep
in mind we are an example to our children, both
on, and off the softball field. Please remember
to control your emotions and actions while the
girls are playing ball. If a manager or umpire
has to address behavioral actions before,
during, or after the game it may result in your
child's team forfeiting the game. Arguing or
threatening anyone, harassment of an umpire,
manager, coaches or players could also result in
a forfeit. Inappropriate language is not
tolerated in this league and will result in a
forfeit. Thank you for your cooperation and
The CMGFL will be
awarding three college scholarships this year in
the amount of $250 each for girls who have
participated in our league. We are pleased
to be able to offer this
opportunity. Click this link for an
