These are friendly mixed level Co-Rec softball games. Players of all levels (level 1-6) are welcome. The goal is to have a friendly no BS atmosphere and for players of all levels to be able to play together. After each league, teams will be reshuffled prior to the next League so we all get to play together. All teams will play at the same times each week so after each game players can hang out and socialize.
Q. Why is there a jersey fee?
A. The jersey fee is to cover a portion of the cost to supply players with a Dark and Green shirt required to play in the league. All players in the SoftballFinder leagues have the same two shirts making it easy to switch divisions, balance teams, and pull subs from other divisions if needed. Bring both to the league since you may alternate between the Dark (home) and Green (away) teams. You will be assigned a number.
Q. Do I have to pay the jersey fee every season?
A. No. It is a one time fee. You will receive a green and a dark SoftballFinder shirt which can be used in any of our leagues and future tournaments.
Q. When do I get my shirts?
A. Shirts are made available either at a social event before the first game or just prior to the first game to players when they first join the league and pay the one time jersey fee. Please ensure the shirt size you want is correct in your player profile.
Q. I lost my shirt(s), can I order a new set?
A. Yes. Jerseys can be ordered by contacting us and requesting a new pair. You will be charged $20 to for the pair.
Q. How do I order nicer personalized jerseys?
A. In the future players may elect to buy 2 personalized SoftballFinder jerseys. Details have yet to be determined. If this is of interested to you, contact us to learn more.
Q. What equipment is required?
A. SoftballFinder will provide the balls, scorebooks and bats to play in the league. You will only need to bring your glove to play. Other equipment you may want to consider bringing/wearing: Bats, Athletic supporters, cleats, batting gloves, mouthpiece.
Q. How are teams made?
A. Teams will be made up of diversified skill levels. During the registration process players are required to self assign themselves to a SoftballFinder
Skill Level which is used for creating teams. Our system randomly generates teams based on these skill levels so it is important that players are honest about their skill level. Teams will be re-shuffled after each season so that eventually players have an opportunity to play with everyone from their division.
Q. Can I request to be on the same team as a friend?
A. SoftballFinder recognizes the importance of playing on the same team as the person who recruited you into the league such as family, friends and the next door neighbor who you carpool with. In an effort to make this possible without changing our unique format we've developed the following team placement policy:
Team Placement Policy - New Players can request to play on the same team as two other players. This request can be made at any point during the registration period
Team Placement Policy - Pairs and Groups
Players must register as individuals. However, if you know you'd like to play with a certain group of people, contact us and we'll ensure you get placed on the same team. Maximum group size is 3 people. Exceptions may be made upon request.
NOTE: Group registration will only work if the skill level is even among teams. We'll break up groups only if the team with the group has an obvious advantage.
Q. I need to cancel my registration. Is that possible?
A. The cancellation deadline for all divisions is two weeks prior to the start of the season. A $20 admin fee will be charged for cancellations. No cancellations will be processed after the deadline unless of a rainout. You may request to move your registration to a future season or have it transferred to someone else. Note: we often have a wait list for players to join the league. If this is the case we can transfer the registration to someone on the wait list.
Q. Do I need to register with ASA or USSSA?
A. No. Unlike Hockey Finder, you won't need to register with the governing body to play softball.
