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.
2020 BPAA Fall Fastpitch Registration
Welcome to the 2020 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 softball. And at five weeks long, it’s a smaller commitment than the full summer program.
The Fall Fast Pitch 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, and games (double headers) will be held on Saturday and Sunday afternoons (first games will be held on August 8th and 9th and the last week of regular season games will be September 19th and 20th) at either noon and 1:30 pm or 3:00 and 4:30 pm. The State Tournament will be held on Sept. 26th and 27th.
At the 8U, 10U & 12U 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.
Registration begins on July 8th and forms (found below) are due by July 19th (Registrations received after July 19th may be accepted, based on openings, and will have a $20 late registration fee added.) We expect to have the teams formed by 7/23/2020. The registration fee is $75.00 per player - includes a Fall Fastpitch jersey. Pants, socks and belts can be purchased by the parents at Sota Shop.
Divisions: Whatever age the player will be on December 31, is the age they need to play for fall 2020. So, if they will turn 13 on or before December 31, they need to play on the 14U team, etc. Please note that the Board has final discretion on player placement on a team outside of their age berth.

**COVID-19 guidelines: As part of registration, an additional waiver will be sent to you regarding COVID-19 and your understanding and acceptance of the risks. While Brooklyn Park Athletic Association (BPAA) will do everything we can to try and minimize the risk to the girls playing and the spectators, we cannot eliminate all risk. Please know that spectators will be asked to social distance and, at this time, will not be allowed to sit in the bleachers. We will also ask that parents/guardians refrain from staying at practices and that players refrain from sharing equipment. If you have any questions about BPAA’s COVID-19 preparedness guide, please do not hesitate to ask.
