Eligibility/Age Guidelines: 16U Softball is for ages 15 thru 17, born between January 1, 2005 and December 31, 2006. *All USAS of SoCal rules apply, incl Travel and HS restrictions. HS players will “go dark” per CIF rules.
Division Overview: This is a new division in 2022! Player age and maturity create an advanced level of competition, therefore, previous experience is required; evals may be requested. Many of the players play on high school teams and are looking for extra playing time to advance their skills. Paid ASA umpires are used. Pitching distance is 43’, base paths are 60’, and a 12” softball is used (Dream Seam or equiv).
Schedule: The Spring season is approximately 14 weeks, having mid-week and weekend games. Practices are scheduled at the manager’s discretion. Inter-league home and away games will also be part of the schedule with an inter-league end of season tournament. This Division qualifies for additional tournaments and USA All-Stars. $$$ There are additional costs that are the sole responsibility of the player.
Evaluations: Spring Softball Evaluations are scheduled for Saturday, January 15th (if necessary.) Practices will begin the weekend of February 5th and the regular season will conclude on or about May 7th. All-Star play can continue through late July or early August; players in this division are expected to be available through that time.
