HCYP Softball Registration

Softball: Spring 2019 Recreational Softball

RECREATIONAL SOFTBALL:  HCYP will offer 8U, 10U, 13U and 14/17U leagues for the Spring 2019 season.

Per softball standards, the "league age" for all players for the Spring 2019 season is the player's age on December 31, 2018, as shown below:     

8U - 2010 through 2012 birthdates     
10U - 2008 and 2009 birthdates     
13U - 2005 through 2007 birthdates     
14/17U - 2001 through 2004 birthdates

Parents can request in the registration process that their daughter be placed in a different league than her age would indicate based on experience, physical size, etc.  For 8U and 10U registrants, parents can request their daughter be placed with a specific coach.  For 13U and 14/17U registrants, a player evaluation day will be scheduled in February. Player evaluation information will be used to evenly distribute players in the 13U and 14/17U drafts.

For Spring 2019, the registration fee is $170 for the 8U league and $225 for the 10U, 13U and 14/17U leagues. 8U registrations received before January 1, 2018 will receive a $10 early bird discount.  10U, 13U, and 14/17U registrations received before January 1, 2019 will receive a $15 early bird discount.

Registration will close February 3, 2019.  A $45 late fee will be charged for registrations received after February 3, 2019.
