CV Synergy

CV Synergy was established in 1995 and is the only travel program endorsed and supported by Castro Valley Girls Softball League (CVSGL).  CVGSL is a non-profit organization providing girls between the ages of 4-18 the opportunity to participate in recreational softball and competitive travel team program at the ASA Junior Olympic “A” and “B” levels.  CV Synergy travel program has produced numerous teams within the ASA Junior Olympic “A” and “B” divisions and has successfully competed at ASA National, and PGF National tournaments.  Additionally, we are extremely proud that many former CV Synergy players have received college scholarships to play softball at Divisions I, II, III  and NAIA.


Looking for players for Synergy 12U Summer/Fall

UPDATE 7/19/2010: due to the COVID-19 situation in California, we will postpone the tryout/workout until a later date TBD. If you do have an interest in this team, please contact Coach Johnny. Contact info is below.

Hi Majors Division parents,

CVGSL is planning to have a Synergy 12u team coached by Johnny Gusman. The initial plan is that we would be joining a Bay Area travel league that would involve a weeknight and weekend game each week. There may also some tournaments which will most likely be in the Bay Area. Of course, this is all dependent on how the COVID-19 situation turns out.

How is this different from the rec league? Being a Synergy team, it will be more competitive and a tryout/practice is planned to determine who will make  the team. Because this is a competitive travel team, more commitment is expected in attendance of practices and games. Because of the COVID-19 impact on the rec league season and summer, the plan is that this team will play whatever is left of summer and continue into fall until the October/November time frame. Normally Synergy would have a separate summer and fall seasons.

Girls whose birth years are 2007 and 2008 are eligible for 12u.

Here is a little bit of Johnny Gusman's softball history. My name is Johnny Gusman. I have coached several seasons in the past for another organization. I was the assistant coach for my oldest daughters A ball travel team from her 12u transition year to her final 18u seasons. I have also assisted with the Synergy coaching staff for the last few seasons of travel for the 12u Jacob's team which my daughter has been playing for. My hope is to fill a competitive team and continue the momentum moving forward with the organization.

If you are interested in this Synergy 12u team or have more questions, please contact me at
