KMGSA Board Meetings are held at 6:30 P.M. on the 3rd Monday of each month in the basement of the Kasson American Legion

Next Meeting Monday, February 19th 2018

All:

 

In spring of 2017, several meetings were held with a group of parents who had started a girls fastpitch softball team in the Kasson Mantorville area.  At the forefront of those meetings was the need for a waiver for this team to participate in league play in Rochester.  After discussion, a one year waiver was granted with the understanding that KMGSA (Kasson Mantorville Girls Softball Association) and this team would operate under the same umbrella moving forward.  That umbrella being KMGSA as the association has the geographical right to girls softball in the Kasson Mantorville area.  No further discussion ever took place.  

 

More recently, it was brought to the attention of KMGSA that this team, knowing it would not be allowed in the SFC league in Rochester, was attempting to register into a league in the Twin Cities.  Regional softball directors notified the league that the same geographical rule applies and as a result, they will not be allowed to register with any league in the state.  Additionally, we have been informed by regional softball directors that this team is not recognized as a club team as it would still need to operate under the local girls softball association, regardless.  As such, the rules for that type of team (Rochester Royals and Minnesota Irish for example) do not apply.

 

It is the position of KMGSA, that no such waiver will be granted now, or at any point in the future.  These type of “garage startup” teams undermine the existing USA Softball geographical rule in place and will not be tolerated or enabled further by this association.  KMGSA acted in “good faith” to bring all Kasson Mantorville girls fastpitch under KMGSA as deemed by USA Softball.  This organizations blatant attempts to disregard and circumvent those rules have led to the current association stance.


 

Sincerely,

 

KMGSA Board
