Building for our 2023 Season and Beyond
Dear NGSL Families,
We hope you have had a restful summer! We at NGSL have been working hard preparing for the upcoming 2023 season and can't wait to be out on the field again! As your new leadership team, we wanted to take the time to share a bit about ourselves and invite you to join us as we work towards revamping our league. While we are starting with a condensed board, we intend to make this a welcoming and inclusive space for the larger community to join; we hope you will join! Our goal is to ensure that NGSL continues to be around for years; with that in mind, we are prioritizing building on the foundation our predecessors created and making NGSL a strong community.
Currently our board consists of the following members:
PRESIDENT: Angelica Herrera has been part of NGSL since 2018. Since the start, Angelica has been an active contributor to our league, begining with her role as a team manager. In this role, Angelica prioritized making impactful experiences for her players. Upon witnessing organizational challenges, Angelica joined the board and has since worked towards growing the league while making softball a safe and inclusive place for our players. As our newly appointed President, Angelica is focused on bridging the relationship gap with our fellow community partners and ensuring that NGSL continues to evolve and serve Newark and its surrounding cities.
SECRETARY: Jeff Rose has been part of NGSL since 2015. In addition to the Secretary role, Jeff is also our valued Communications Manager, managing our website and social media. Jeff has coached with NGSL for 6 years. Both of his daughters started playing with NGSL in 6U and they continue to love the game. He saw the need for more help and has transitioned to the board in order to make sure our community will always have a fun and safe place for our girls to play softball.
TREASURER: Annie Loya has been part of NGSL since 2016 - with a couple hiatus due to pregnancies :) As a “new” resident, Annie registered her daughter with NGSL to find a space to create community, build relationships and create lasting friendships. Annie joined the NGSL board to serve and support her family’s new community. Annie served as the Executive Director for Youth United for Community Action in East Palo Alto for several years and brings organizational and programmatic experience that aim to serve young people. She has served on several boards, committees and collaborative efforts to bridge community and engagement.
We are hosting an informational board meeting on Wednesday, August 31, 2022, at 6:30 PM at Jack's Brewing in Fremont, where we will discuss plans for the 2023 season and share how you can become a supporting board member or volunteer. We understand that committing to the board can feel daunting, but we want to assure you that we strive to make this a familial experience. Please join us to learn more about how you could serve the league with your expertise, network or long-term involvement. We ask that you please RSVP by Friday, August 26.
With care & appreciation,
Your NGSL Team
