Play with a friend!

To encourage new participants in the youth softball program we are offering you the opportunity to play with a friend! Any girl who has participated it the HSYSA softball program in the past can sign up to be on the same team as a friend who has not participated it the HSYSA softball program in the past. Both girls must list each other on the registration form in the comments area and will be placed on the same team at the draft. Tee Ball participants can request to play with a friend even if neither girl participated last year. We encourage you to use this opportunity to introduce softball to a friend who may not have played in the past or who has thought about playing but did not want to end up on a team where she did not know anyone else. If you signed up to play with a friend in the past, the two girls may sign up together again in 2016.

Coaches and League Directors:

We will need lots of help this spring with our league. In addition to coaches we also need volunteers for various roles. Some volunteer projects are one night a few hours others involve multiple nights. If you are able to volunteer any amount of time this year please indicate on your child’s registration form in the appropriate area. There will be a coaches clinic in the spring. The time and location has not yet been determined.
