2024 Fall Fastpitch Overview and Registration

 

We are a non-profit organization operating on a volunteer basis. We are always looking for board members, coaches and assistant coaches.  Please let us know if you are interested.  

Welcome to the 2024 Fall Fastpitch Season!  Brooklyn Park Athletic Association is excited to welcome girls of all ages to the program, no matter their experience with the fastpitch game or softball in general.  The fall league is a great way to introduce young players to a fun and 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 fastpitch.  Practices will start in early August after teams are are established.  All games are doubleheaders, will be played on Saturday or Sunday afternoons at 12:00pm and 1:30pm or 3:00pm and 4:30pm.  8U and 10U will play on Saturday's, while 12U, 14U and High School will play on Sunday's.  Game weekends will be: 

August 24th and 25th

September 7th and 8th

September 14th and 15th

September 21st and 22nd

Fall State Tournament will be held: September 28th and 29th

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 fundamentals of the fastpitch game and how to succeed in a fun fastpitch environment.  Throughout the age groups we build teams that are competitive for returning fastpitch players. 

Cost:

8U     $90.00

10U and above     $110.00

Fees not included:  State Tournament Gate fee which is $100.00 per team, which is split between players on the team.
