Fall Ball provides an opportunity for girls to stay active in organized softball for the Fall season. Divisions are open to girls in 6U, 8U, 10U, 12U and 14U age groups. The 2020 season will run from September through mid-November. 8U-14U teams will practice once each week and play game(s) on Sundays. 6U teams will hold a combination practice/game on Sundays.
Registration deadline: Monday, August 17.
What is the Cost For Fall Ball?
Registration includes: a uniform top, USA Softball registration, insurance, umpire fees, and a standard picture package. Scholarships are available and awarded based on financial need. Please contact the treasurer at email@example.com for more information.
All Fall teams are formed by the Player Selection Committee which takes many factors into account when forming teams.
What happens if the season is canceled, cut short, or scrimmages and games can't be played?
If SDYS is unable to complete the season or unable to play games due to City, County or State Regulations, the league will endeavor to credit or refund part or all of the registration fee as appropriate.
What is the appropriate division for my player?
Divisions are based on the player's year of birth as shown below. Players that will be moving up a division in Spring (players with birthdays on even numbered years) are strongly recommended to play the Fall season in the division that they will be age-appropriate for Spring 2021. For example, 2007 birthdates play in 14U, 2009 = 12U, 2011 = 10U and 2013 = 8U. Any requests to "stay down" in the division they played in during Spring need board approval. Please contact the Player Agent, Brian Zeglen firstname.lastname@example.org with requests to play down.
When Does the Season Start?
Fall Ball teams will be formed and practices will begin in late August or early September.
Where are Games and Practices?
Practices and home games will be held at Cardiff Sports Park or Encinitas Community Park. In Fall, many games are played against other leagues, and some games will be held at other parks in North San Diego County. 6U teams meet only on Sundays with 45 minutes of practice followed by a 45 minute game each week.
How Long is the Fall Season?
The season is approximately 9-10 weeks and will conclude in mid-November.
What Equipment is Needed?
Players need to provide: Softball glove, batting helmet with face guard, pants, cleats and bat.
Fielding masks are highly recommended for all players 8U and older, especially pitchers and infielders.
Sliding pads or shorts are recommended for players 10U and older.
SDYS provides some team bats for T-Ball and 8U. The league supplies basic equipment including balls, catcher's gear and a limited number of pitcher's masks, however, you may choose to purchase these on your own.
More details can be found on the Equipment page.
