SPYA Fall softball registration is now open through TeamSnap!
SPYA participates in the Parkland Softball League. The Fall season is focused on player skill development. Practices begin in mid-August. Games begin the weekend after Labor Day and run through the end of October.
The success of the organization hinges on volunteer coaches. Coaching is a rewarding activity and one your daughter’s will remember. Even if you do not have any coaching experience, I am available as are others to help guide anyone.
We are fielding teams in the following divisions:
PREP: Ages 8 and under.
10U: Ages 9 and 10. Increased focus on skill development and competitive games. Players pitch, score is kept, and umpires officiate the games. Games are played on a standard field with 60’ bases, pitch from 35’, and use a small size 11 softball.
12U: Ages 11 and 12. Increased focus on game strategy and mental awareness. Players pitch, score is kept, and umpires officiate the games. Players are able to steal any base, a size 12 softball is used, and pitchers pitch from 40’.
18U: Ages 13-18. Play on a regulation size softball field with pitchers pitching from 43’.
Practices begin mid-August and scheduled at the discretion of the coach. A typical pre-season practice schedule consists of 2-3 practices per week.
SPYA provides a personalized softball jersey with the players name and number on it.
Parents are responsible to supply black softball pants, cleats, softball glove, softball helmet with face mask. A softball bat is recommended for each player. There are extra bats if needed. A fielding facemark is recommenced as well.
Home games and practices are held at Springhouse Middle School.
