Information for 2020 season

Welcome to the Riverview Community Club Softball Information Page

Please take a few minutes to read the information below for important news about softball for the upcoming 2020 season.

As of the 2016 season entry level ball for WSWYSA is considered B level softball. Players wishing to play C ball should self-identify at time of registration and will be placed on teams outside of WSWYSA.

All players will continue to register out of their local club.

Softball conveners from local community clubs and WSWYSA board members will attend a draft meeting where teams will be picked based on several criteria (see below in bold). Teams will be developed in an effort to make play both fair and competitive.

Rosters will be held to 12-13 players as much as possible.

Teams will be formed based on the availability of a coach (at least one member of the coaching staff must have a softball coaching certificate). In addition, B ball requires several pitchers who can pitch windmill style.

Any community club wishing to host a team –must have a dedicated coach identified early in the year and at least 2-3 pitchers who can (or are willing to learn) windmill.

All efforts will be made to keep as many of the local players together, playing out of their own club but, this is dependent on the number of girls registered, if there is a coach from the community and, the availability of pitchers. There is a possibility your child may be drafted to another club.

Registration cost for softball for the 2020 season is 160.00$ per player for U10-U19. Learn to Play registration fee is 70$. Community clubs may add fees such as a volunteer bond to the registration cost. This is individual and unique to each community club.

Teams are grouped by age and are based on year born:
