  • There will be 4 softball leagues: 8u, 10u, 12u and 14u.
  • WPPA Fall Softball is aimed at providing additional on-field experience across our age levels. Whether you are building upon prior softball experience or new to softball – you are welcome. Our coaches will be encouraged to allow players to try new positions or just focusing on mastering positions from prior experience.
  • Consistent with the more relaxed nature of Fall Softball – teams will not be assigned practice slots.

Registration and Team Assignments: The Fall Softball commissioner will work with the coaches to try and field balanced teams across each age and will do our best to honor but cannot guarantee “play with” and preferred coach requests. Please refer any questions to the Fall Softball Commissioner.

New Coaches (or Coaches who did not coach in Spring 2021 at WPPA): New coaches are always welcomed. Email the Fall Softball Commissioner indicating your interest.
