to the Metro Atlanta Senior Softball League (MASSL). The purpose
of the league is to encourage a healthier community and promote
fellowship by providing a recreational slow-pitch softball league
open to all qualified applicants on a come-one-come-all basis.
We are pleased to extend an invitation
to you to join the organization. We support your interest in senior
softball and are confident that you will find the MASSL an organization
that generates a rewarding softball experience through organized
league play and the camaraderie of its membership. In addition,
it provides a channel to play traveling team senior softball for
those who desire a higher level of competition. Our Tournament
Teams continue to win regional and national tournaments.
Open practice sessions are available during the off
season (October through March) at Best Friend Park on Monday and
Saturday mornings. Depending on the time of year and the weather,
practices may start as early as 9:00 a.m. or as late as 11:00 am.
New players are invited to attend one practice and
complete a waiver before stepping on the field. After that, they
are asked to become members by paying the annual membership fee,
giving them the year round ability to attend all practice sessions
and eligibility to join the league. New members are welcome to apply
for membership at any time.
the past several years, the 200+ seniors registered in the league
represented 12 Metro Atlanta area counties. The membership age ranged
from 45 to 84 and the skill level of the membership had an equally
wide span. Registration in league is available
for men who turn forty-five (45) years of age and women who turn
forty (40) years of age during the calendar year. Registration
is normally accomplished during January and February for the First
Half and again during June and July for the Second Half.
Completion of a membership application and a release
of liability and indemnification waiver along with payment of the
combined annual Gwinnett Senior Softball (GSS) membership dues and
MASSL registration fee is all that is required. After the registration
has been completed, new members are permitted to participate in
MASSL games as well as in the practice sessions generally held at
Gwinnett County’s Best Friend Park.
