  • Based on these age requirements, players can register for one (1) of the following divisions: 8U, 10U, 12U, or 14U
  • Fall Softball Coaches are encouraged to submit a complete roster of players for their Fall Softball Team. Please reach out to your current coach about roster placement.
  • Don't worry if your registered player isn't connected to any coach, the Fall Softball Commissioner will work to place them on a roster.
  • WPPA Fall Softball aims to provide additional on-field experience across all age levels. It is a good time for players to try different positions and improve their softball skills. However, if there is interest from the coaches, and teams created with travel or high level players,  an A League and a B League will be created, if possible.
  • ONLY Rising 12U and Rising 14U players are allowed to move up to the next division for Fall Softball, pending the approval of the Fall Softball Commissioner and the WPPA President. "Rising players" are players who just finished their second year of 10U and 12U.
  • Fall Softball Teams are not assigned practice slots, please do not request them and please don't reach out to CPD.
  • If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to the Fall Softball Commissioner at fallsoftball@wppachicago.org

New Coaches (or Coaches who did not coach in Spring 2024 at WPPA): New coaches are always welcomed. Please fill out this form and email the Fall Softball Commissioner with your interest.
