2020 DYC Spring Girls Softball

2020 Spring Season

The softball program provides girls, ages 5 - 14 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! 

*Regular Season Registration closes on 3/12. A $50 late fee will be added after March 7th. if space is still available.

There is a wait list in place at all levels. This is to ensure there are enough players for each team and that there are not too many players on a team which impacts all players instruction time during practice and limits game time. Please understand that we never want to turn a child away so please register early. If the waitlist is activated at a level we will work to see if we can build another team. 

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