Softball is offered to 3rd - 8th grade players.

SYS offers the following age groups:
     3rd/4th grade
     5th/6th grade
     7th/8th grade

Players must play in the corresponding age division based on their current school grade. Players may only "play up" in an older age division if approved by SYS.  

Practices generally begin in April. The practice schedule (days, times, locations) is determined by each team's coaching staff.

Teams generally practice 2 times per week, depending on age division. 

Softball games generally begin mid-May and can go through the second or third week in July.  All players are expected to finish the season, if your child has a reason why they would not be able to play until mid July please let SYS know ASAP.  If your player does not finish the season, it may affect future registrations.

Softball players must have their own glove, batting helmet (with a full-face mask), and bat. Bats can be shared with other players.

Softball players will be provided with a team jersey as a uniform. Players may be required to purchase baseball pants, belt, and socks as requested by the coaching staff. 

Softball players must wear cleats (metal spikes allowed for 7th/8th grade only).
