2024 DYC Spring Softball

The Inhouse Softball program provides girls ages 4 - 12 of all abilities, an opportunity to learn and enjoy this exciting and rewarding sport. In addition to learning the game, kids will also learn how to be part of a team, communicate and problem solve with their peers, learn respect for their teammates, coaches, opponents and umpires, and begin to build leadership skills. Softball, like many sports, gives kids an opportunity to make new friendships which may last a lifetime! 

Please see additional information regarding the softball program including field locations, equipment requirements, etc. at: Softball Home Page

Once rosters begin to fill, there may be a waitlist activated. This is to ensure there are enough players for each team and that there are not too many players on a team which impacts instruction time during practice and limits individual game time. Please understand that we never want to turn a child away so please register early. If the waitlist is activated , we will work to see if we can build another team. 

Please note: Refunds will only be issued up to two weeks prior to the teams being formed or the season starts (including practices) minus a 50% processing fee. No refunds will be issued after this timeframe, Medical exceptions may be made on a case by case basis.
