Like you, we CANNOT WAIT to get back to softball this summer! Registration for softball leagues will open early to mid April, and registration will close on May 24th, 2022. If you'd like to be added to the waitlist to be notified by email when registration opens, send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, preferred email address & whether you're looking to sign up as an individual or a team.
All information about this summer's softball leagues, including DATES and LOCATIONS, can be found below!
*Please read through this page before contacting us with any questions. We've have been fielding a lot of questions lately (pun intended) and there's a good chance that the answer you're looking for is on this page!*
All information provided below is as-known at the time of posting, is not guaranteed, and is subject to change without notice.
This is an ADULT-ONLY (19+), CO-ED, RECREATIONAL softball. It's as much about the social as it is about the softball! Competitive players and teams are asked to find another league to join. Players in this co-ed league are a mix of new and experienced players, with varying skill levels, all playing with a for-fun attitude.
As a co-ed league, we suggest at least 4 males and 4 females (do as you please with the rest!) on your team. Softball teams are limited to 12 people on the roster.
All participants must provide their own personal equipment, like a baseball glove and teams must provide their own bats. FCSSC will provide bases and balls. Catcher's masks are also available from FCSSC and strongly recommended.
Teams will pitch to their own players. In this format, every batter gets a maximum of 3 pitches. We play 7 innings or 90 minutes and field 9 players including a rover. Offensive innings end at 3 outs or at 8 runs. Be sure to review the FCSSC specific league rules HERE.
Back by popular demand, FCSSC will once again offer a Masters League for players aged 35+ (on Sundays).
Most weeknight games will take place at 6:30pm, however some leagues can include or exclusively be played under the lights at some of the city's best diamonds with a start time around 8 or 8:30pm.
Sunday afternoon games will mostly play at 3pm and 4:30pm however could start as early as 1pm subject to registration volume.

In Summer 2021 Softball fees were $1260/team and $120 for individuals for a 14-week season. That's $7.50/person/game when you register a full team, and ~$8.50/game when FCSSC finds a team for you.
Leagues that play exclusively Under the Lights are more expensive because of the additional lighting fees.
Summer 2022 prices will be similar and will only be shared when all permits have been finalized and registration opens in early to mid April.
Registration will sell-out fast. Start recruiting your team today and be sure to follow us on socials (@fcssc) to receive our registration opening announcement!
