Jacksonville Beach Fastpitch Softball

Welcome to the official website for the Northeast Florida Girls Softball league (NFGS). We exist for the sole purpose of providing an opportunity for young ladies ages 4-18 to learn how to play softball, both as a skill sport and a team sport.

We serve the Beaches and Southside communities primarily but we accept registrations from any girls that are interested.  We encourage parents to become involved in their daughters development and fun as coaches, team parents, scorekeepers, etc. 

We play 2 seasons, one in Spring and one in Fall.  Currently we  have 6U(girls Tball), 8U, 10U, 12U, and 16U age group teams in the league.

Any parent who wishes to become involved, please contact one of the league officers. I will promise you that you'll get more out of it than any effort you put into it. Contact the league, or email nfgsoftball@yahoo.com and we will get back to you ASAP.

Financial assistance is available to those who qualify.

Spring Season - January through April

Fall Season - August through November

BAXTER, “COACH” JOHN JOSEPH

“Coach” John Joseph Baxter passed away Saturday, June 14, 2014, doing what he loved: spending time on the ball field. 

John’s greatest love, after family and his precious grandchildren, was softball. He is a co-founder of Northeast Florida Girls Softball (NFGS), and was widely known in the community for his love of and dedication to girls’ fast pitch softball. John cherished the many relationships made over the years through the softball community, most of whom have remained lifelong friends.

 We dedicate the Fall 2014 Season to Coach John....Let's PLAY BALL
