Traveling Softball - Fall Season Information



CYSA teams for Fall Softball play in the Minnesota Metro Fastpitch League (MMFL).  The fall season is for those individuals who desire to extend the softball-playing season.    Fall league provides an opportunity for your players to learn about the game and gain experience playing fastpitch.  It is an excellent introduction to the "travel" team environment at a higher level of play.  For all age levels (8,10,12,14,16, 18 & Under), the season begins in the middle of August and runs through the end of September.  Games are played in the south-west metro area but could also occur in the greater metro area depending on game schedule.Teams will have 1-2 practices per week.  NAFA rules apply.  For Fall ball we play rain or shine.  Double-header games are typically scheduled at noon, 1:30, 3:00, and 4:30 pm on Sundays, subject to change. Registration for the fall traveling softball season is early July Registration information will be posted on the CYSA website.  However, it is ultimately the players and parents responsibility to seek out registration information – watch for announcements and/or forms through posts in the local newspaper, local cable television, the District 112 Community Bulletin Board and online

A registration deadline will be announced online and may be different each year.  Players that register after the deadline will be placed on a waiting list.  If numbers permit at that age level or at the Board’s discretion, the player may be placed on a team.

Teams are formed at the 8U, 10U, 12U, 14U, 16U and 18U levels. Player division is based on the age level the player will be playing in the summer of 2019 which is the player's age as of Dec 31, 2018.
