Welcome to NBGSA 

Our objective is to implant firmly in the youth of the community the ideals of Good Sportsmanship, Honesty, Loyalty, Courage, and Respect, so that they may be happy, strong and well-adjusted youth and will grow to be good, decent, healthy, trustworthy adults.
Registration Open



There is a $20 concession stand fee for each player included in the registration fee.  Parents will be able to receive $10 back for each shift worked in the concessions stand, this is limited to 2 per player.  Must be 18 or older.

This year we will be selling coupon books for our fundraiser.  These books will cost $25 each and each player will receive one book at their first practice to use as a demo and keep.  An opt-out fee of $25 is available if you prefer not to participate in any league fundraising and you will be able to keep the book.

Volunteer background checks

ASA affiliated leagues are required to conduct background checks on all adult volunteers/employees.  This includes all Board Members, grounds crew, umpires, managers, coaches, team mom/dad and concession stand employees and any other adults that have repetitive access to or contact with the players or teams.

NBGSA is required to conduct the background checks thru M.A.S.A., Michigan Amauteur Softball Association

Sign up at, you will be asked to enter your personal info as well as a drivers license, once you have been cleared (can take 24 hours or more to clear) then you can take the ACE test, which is required by all Managers, and highly recommended for all coaches and any volunteer personal.   the ACE certification gives you access to teaching materials and a insurance policy. Cost for this is $25 for first year, $20 for each year after that

All coaches, managers, or parent volenteer will be required to provide proof of ACE or a cleared background check if requested. Managers must have a ACE certification completed prior to Draft Day. All coaches must have background checks or ACE completed immediately after Draft Day.


The ACE Coaching Certification program is provided to any coach through Coaches normally log in to take the certification exam using a username and password (if a profile already exists from a previous certification or from a registration). After purchase, a clear ASA background check is required before access to the certification program is allowed.

Coaching instructions are provided in short video clips categorized by topic which are then followed by an on-screen question and answer section. The certification will be complete once all questions are answered correctly.

NOTE: All missed questions are presented at the end of the exam to allow the coach to review the question again and answer correctly.

Each coach who successfully completes the ACE certification receives an ID card, with background check clearance noted on the card. Level 1 coaches also receive an ACE manual in CD-Rom format. All ACE certifications expire on December 31 each year.

It is necessary for each coach to re-certify each year in order to maintain an active certification for the current season.
