Fall League

2022 RYFSA Fall League

NEW THIS YEAR

This league competition will be run on the MN Softball website.   This site is easy to navigate and will make reporting scores, finding your schedule, etc... so much easier.  

To participate in the Fall League you MUST register on the new website.   We understand that this first year there will be some learning curves but after this we think you'll love everything the site has to offer.

Longer Schedule This Season

This season we will be starting a week later to give a longer break between summer and fall but also running two weeks later like in years past pre-covid.  

There will be six weeks of regular season teams with most and maybe all teams getting one Sunday off.  During registration you request a top pick for a Sunday off and a second choice pick.  Please keep in mind community events, parades, high school events, etc.. that would be nice for your teams to have a day off.  

 

ALL REGISTRATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED


DETERMINING AGE CLASSIFICATION

In fall ball, USA Softball registers players at the level that they will be playing in for next season. Use the dates below as a reference.  18U players will be combined with 16U to make up our new high school division.  If communities don't have an age group we will consider allowing them to play with an appropriate division. For Example, if a community does not have a 14U team, RYFSA would consider allowing a first  YeaR 14U (2009) to play 12u, however a second year 14U (2008) would need to play 16U.


DEADLINE FOR NON-Rochester Community Teams TO REGISTER FOR FALL BALL IS AUGUST 7th, 2022

Fee:  $450/team ($400 for SFC teams that played in SFC summer league).  $225/team for all 8U

Teams will be formed for 8U-18U teams.  

It is the intention of RYFSA to create teams by age and school boundaries, but there are at times that this is not possible. All teams will be at the discretion of the RYFSA Board. While special requests for team placement can be made, the RYFSA board reserves the right to reject these requests.
