2020 FALL FAQ

2020 FALL REGISTRATION FAQ

Orange Canyon Girls Softball registration for the Fall 2020 season goes from September 13th to November 22nd.  Teams will form and practices will begin in August.  These dates are tentative; with the COVID-19 restrictions and coordination with other leagues participating in OC Fall Ball, the dates might be adjusted.

 
1) What are the costs associated with the 2020 Fall Season? 

Ages 4-6 (6U) $70
Ages 7-14 (8U-14U) $150 
  
2) How often will the girls practice? How often are games?

Practice dates and times are determined by the coach. As a league, we enforce a policy of no more than 3 per week. During the Fall season, games are played on Sundays.  


3) Will there be any additional fees?

Each team usually collects a small amount of money at the start of the season to cover additional costs such as a team banner to display during games; this fee is not to exceed $45 per player. The team may also ask for funds towards the end of the season to cover costs associated with a team party and gifts for the Coaches, Manager, and Team Coordinator. 

4) How are girls selected for a team? Can I request a buddy? 

Players are selected via a draft. The only age division that is able to request a buddy is the 6U Division. There are no guarantees of buddy requests, but we will try our best to accommodate any requests. 

5) What is included in the registration cost? 

Uniform (Jersey and socks) • Insurance • End of season memento • Umpire Fees • Field Costs

  
6) What equipment is needed?

The basic items your player needs will be cleats or turfs. For 6u, tennis shoes are ok.  A helmet with an USA Softball approved face cage and chin strap, USA Softball approved bat, and glove. Girls in higher divisions may also want to add knee pads and/or sliding shorts to protect them when sliding into a base. A fielding facemask is not required.  The helmet can be purchased at any sporting goods store. The helmet must be worn while the batter is on deck, batting, or running the bases. The bat should come up to the child’s waist when placed on the ground next to the leg. To determine the weight of the bat, the child should be able to hold it parallel to the ground in one hand without much effort. The bat must be printed with the ASA or USA Softball approval. A glove should be able to close around the size of the ball used in the age division in which they play. The 6U and 8U Divisions use a 10” yellow ball. 10U uses an 11” yellow ball. 12U and 14U teams use a 12” yellow ball. 

7) How will I know what age group to register my daughter for?   

The age divisions are set by USA Softball (the governing body of softball in the United States).  The registration website should select the appropriate division based on your daughter’s age, and you have the option to request to play up or down.  For the 2020 Fall Recreation Season, the age divisions will be: 

Division for Fall 2020:

6U (TBall)

8u

10u

12u

14u

Age of child on or before 12/31/19:

4, 5 & 6

7 & 8

9 & 10

11& 12

13& 14

It is not unusual for families to request a play-up in Fall, to align the athlete with the division that she’ll play in Spring of next year.

Girls are typically placed in the division which represents their current age; however, sometimes adjustments are made to play up or down in unusual situations based upon skill levels or safety concerns. The player must attend evaluations to be considered as a player in a different division. The board must approve any change in playing division and has the final decision.  
 
8) Is there a payment plan for registration feeds? 

OCGSL offers a payment plan; half of the registration cost is due at the time of registration. The system will charge the remaining half on the same credit card on 9/30/2020.

9) Does OCGSL offer a sibling discount? 

OCGSL does offer a sibling discount. Our online registration system will automatically discount $20 off any additional siblings registered during the same transaction. Please contact info@ocgsl.org should you experience a problem. 

Proof of age in the form of birth certificate must be uploaded during registration.
