SRYA Softball


Registration for FALL SOFTBALL will open July 1

SRYA Softball is a recreational girls fastpitch softball program. We field teams in the 6U, 8U, 10U, 12U, 14U and HSE (High School Eligible - 19U) age groups. SRYA Softball participates in the NCCGSL (North County Community Girls Softball League). For more information on our league, go to

SRYA Softball is committed to teaching quality Fastpitch Softball. We focus on the fundamentals and teach the latest softball skills and techniques. We develop our pitchers and give them the tools to reach their potential; however, commitment, effort and PRACTICE are a must. All players must be evaluated to ensure proper placement to achieve talent and age parity. Evaluations are held in the end of February, teams are formed, and practices typically begin by the third week of March, weather permitting.
