The Longmeadow Softball program is run through the New England Youth Sports Association (NEYSA), and offers the opportunity for girls in Grades 1 thru 8 to play in a program designed to teach the game of softball in a fun environment and eventually progress to an increasingly structured and competitive setting.
Grades 1 & 2
For children in Grades 1 and 2, the program focuses on basic skill development and incorporates approximately 1 game per week with surrounding towns for 6-8 weeks.
Grades 3 & Up Beyond Grade 2, all girls who wish to play must attend evaluations in March; all girls are placed on a team based on their skill level and age eligibility for U10, U12 or U14 travel teams. Games are scheduled 1-2 times per week in Longmeadow and local communities for a total of 10-15 games per season.
The season starts in April with regular season play and ends with playoffs for those teams that are eligible. Games are structured with umpires and forfeit rules, so player attendance is critical. We aim for team sizes of 12-13 players. Once rosters are submitted to the league, additional players cannot be added, no exceptions. A copy of a certified birth certificate is required at registration.
The Longmeadow Softball Association (LSA) is committed to the active promotion and operation of a competitive youth athletic program while encouraging good sportsmanship, skill development, and appreciation for the game of softball.
