From the president

From the president ...

I am so proud of the growth we've seen in GAL over the past few years. Not only have the girls grown as people and as athletes but our numbers have grown as well - We've grown 40% in just the past year!
So it is with a heavy heart that I write that this will be my last year as GAL president. I will step down August 1 to focus on my family, work and education.
This has been an amazing opportunity and I appreciate every gift GAL has given me since I started with this league back in the late 1980's. I know that GAL will be successful in the future; we are on an upswing and that momentum is powerful.
In addition to president, we have several other opportunities to serve on the board next year. Please let me know if you are interested in learning more.
