FALL SOFTBALL

There is currently no plan to run Fall Softball for SCAA in 2017. If you would like to volunteer with our Softball Program please contact Andy Morrison for details. 




SCAA sponsored softball teams compete in the Chesterfield Youth Softball Association (CYSA). SCAA conducts registration, selects coaches, forms teams and provides uniforms. Game schedules and rules are provided by the CYSA. SCAA is represented at the league level by our Softball Director.

Program Information: Fall Ball last for 6 weekends with teams playing double headers each Saturday. All games are at LC Bird.  Games begin the first weekend after Labor Day. The 6 & 8U play two 1 hour games for 6 Saturdays in a row. All other ages play two 1 hour and 10 minute games for 6 Saturdays.  All games are drop dead time limits.

Practice: Each team is allocated weekly practice time subject to availability. Fall Ball practice begins in September, the Tuesday following Labor Day and practice is held at Swift Creek Elementary, Swift Creek Middle or other nearby baseball fields. Practice during the season is at the discretion of the coaches.

Coach Pitch:
The "6 and Under" league is exclusively "Coach Pitch" with emphasis on teaching baseball skills. The "8 and Under" league is a combination of Coach Pitch and Player Pitch. All other leagues are exclusively player pitch.


Pictures:
Team and individual pictures will be taken about mid-season and may be purchased for an additional charge.


Free Agent Policy:
Children who play for an association other than the one affiliated with the elementary school boundary in which they live are considered free agents and must be "released" by their home association in order to play elsewhere. Children who live within the Swift Creek Elementary School attendance boundaries will only be released to play for another association if we are unable to place them on a team. Should this occur, players who request to play for another association will be released according to the request date.
