Softball Announcements


SYA LITTLE LEAGUE SOFTBALL

You read that right, SYA Softball is transitioning to SYA Little League Softball starting this fall. As we work through this change, we will be updating the Softball web site as well as communicating information to all our families. Xplosion Softball will remain the SYA Travel Softball program, so no changes with this program at this time. For Little League Softball, while there will be minimal to no impact with the on-field opportunities and play, the administration of the program will differ as we implement the Little League Softball program. We will offer these divisions: Minors (7-11), Majors (9-12), Juniors (12-14), and Seniors (13-16) all based on player’s age on December 31, 2018. Girls from 4-6 will have the opportunity to play Little League TeeBall with the TB (4-6 [5-6 for the Fall season]) and Coach Pitch (5-7) divisions under SYA Little League Baseball. Registration is now open for the fall season. Click here to register using the new SYA Registration system. Check out the Age Determination Chart for Softball for the fall season. Any questions please do not hesitate to contact Bob Woodruff at syasoftball@cox.net.


SYA LITTLE LEAGUE SOFTBALL – In Need of Volunteers

For any program to be successful, volunteers are need and SYA Little League is no exception. This starts with the SYA Little League Board of Directors, which will have numerous softball positions as described here.  Please consider any one of these positions in support of your daughter’s program. If you don’t have the inclination for the board, then maybe an on-field position like Team Manager or Assistant Coach or better yet, an Umpire. We have off the field opportunities also. Join SYA Little League Softball today! Any questions please do not hesitate to contact Bob Woodruff at syasoftball@cox.net.

PET POLICY — Not Allowed on School Grounds

SCHOOL FIELDS:

There are three Fairfax County ordinances prohibiting pets (i.e., dogs) from all Fairfax County school grounds. There are health notices on all FCPS school grounds asking pet owners to NOT bring their pets on school grounds.

Please do not bring your pets to ANY school fields.

FAIRFAX COUNTY/REGIONAL PARK AUTHORITY PARKS:

It must be on a leash, must remain AT LEAST 15 feet from the field at all times (NEVER to be on the field), controlled by someone that can restrict its movements (i.e. not a child), and any waste must be cleaned up and taken with you.

We prefer that you would NOT bring your pet to any soccer fields. We have had many complaints from concerned parents. While most people are responsible, even the best of dogs will had a bad day. 

Because of the number of people who visit the fields, and local health codes, please consider leaving your pet at home while attending soccer games.
