Fall Softball is all about instruction, and is a great opportunity for our girls to have fun while learning and practicing the proper fundamentals of softball. The season goes from late August through the last week of October, and is a great forum to get ready for the main spring season.

Skills Clinics by Dickey’s Dugout:
Back by popular demand! Professional softball coaches from our sponsor, Dickey’s Dugout, will lead a series of skills clinic to start off the 2021 Fall Ball season. There will be general skills clinics as well as specialized clinics in pitching and catching. These clinics are FREE with your 2021 Fall Ball registration.
We are considering offering a 14U team option for players who are not actively engaged in high school or middle school softball. In order to offer this option, we must have at least 10 interested players including pitchers and catchers (of any level). If your child is interested in playing on an SSYS 14U team in the fall, please click on the registration link. No money will be collected at this time. We will contact you in August with additional details.
We are considering offering Tournament Ball this year in the Fall for players who were on the 8U and 10U Storm in the summer of 2021. Additional spots may be available for players interested in playing at a more competitive level. We would anticipate 2-4 tournaments over the Fall season. If your child would be interested in playing Tournament Ball please indicate this on the registration page. PLEASE
NOTE: expressing interest in Tournament Ball does not guarantee a position on the team should we have enough interest this year and does not guarantee a position on the Spring or Summer select teams (Storm and Cyclones).
It takes a village to make SSYS SOFTBALL great! Our program is mostly run with parent and community volunteers. We would love your help in any capacity.

We have several committee members rotating off this year, and we are always looking for help from those willing to volunteer their time.
