Rec Softball

The purpose of the league is to give young girls an opportunity to learn to play softball in a fun and local environment. We encourage young girls to participate in multiple activities, softball being one.

Competetive Softball

For players (ages 6-14) looking to further hone their skills and increase their level of commitment, our competitive program forms teams that compete in tournaments against other organizations.

Rec Volleyball

Whether you're a newcomer to the game or looking to develop your skills, our recreational volleyball leagues can help you reach your goals.


We are always looking for volunteers to help with everything from coaching to concessions.

Message From UGRA

Welcome to the website of the Urbandale Girls Recreation Association (UGRA). We hope you are able to find the information you need on the sports programs our organization offers to the girls of Urbandale.

UGRA provides recreational sports (Volleyball and Softball) to the girls of Urbandale. Our intent is to provide structured athletic participation and social interaction for girls that live in or attend school in Urbandale. Fundamentals of each individual sport is a focus of our programs, but our main objective is to provide a healthy, safe environment for our girls to have fun with sports.

UGRA Board of Directors is a wonderful place to volunteer your time back to our community. This board is run by volunteers that organize leagues and maintain facilities to give our girls the best opportunities to participate in sports and have fun. Although the board members provide many hours of work, there is always a need for more. We cannot be successful without all the volunteer coaches, scorekeepers, concession stand workers and parents that take their girl(s) to games and practices. Thanks to everyone that makes UGRA the great success it is.

If you would like to learn more about our board or volunteering with UGRA please contact me by sending an email to ugrasportsboard@gmail.com. Thank you for being a part of UGRA.
