BPAA Fastpitch is a sub-committee of the Brooklyn Park Athletic Association, a non-profit organization comprised of all volunteers. The purpose of BPAA is to benefit the physical, mental, moral, and character development of its members and of the youth in our community by providing major sports programs and activities for boys and girls, regardless of ability or financial status.
Welcome to the 2023 Fall Fastpitch season! The Brooklyn Park Athletic Association is excited to welcome girls of all ages into the program, no matter their experience with the fastpitch game or softball in general. The fall league is a great way to introduce your young players to a fun, competitive game of fastpitch softball. At five weeks long, it’s a smaller commitment than the full summer program.
The Fall Fastpitch League provides an opportunity for players to learn about the game and gain experience playing fast pitch. Practices will start in early August after teams are established. Games (double headers 12pm and 1:30pm or 3pm and 4:30pm) will be held on Saturday or Sunday afternoons. 8U and 10U will play Saturdays, while 12U and above will play Sundays.
August 19th and 20th
August 26th and 27th
Sept 9th and 10th
Sept 16th and 17th
State will be held: Sept 23rd and 24th
At the 8U and 10U levels, we will offer an introductory environment for those who are new to fastpitch or new to softball altogether. Players will learn the fundamentals of the fastpitch game and how to succeed in a fun, fastpitch environment. Throughout the age groups, we will build teams that are competitive for returning fastpitch players. It is our goal to NOT turn anyone away.

Includes a T-shirt
Fees not included: State Gate fee which is $100 per team which is split between players on the team.
