The mission of SYC Softball is to offer Springfield area youth the opportunity to play house level softball in a controlled environment that provides entertainment and enjoyment. In addition, SYC Softball will focus on development of softball skills to prepare youth for participation in high school programs at the varsity and junior varsity level. SYC Softball is designated as a girl’s sport; however, any boy that wishes to play is welcome to participate.

League age is determined by an individual’s age as of December 31 of the previous calendar year in accordance with Amateur Softball Association (ASA) code. The 8U Division generally consists of ages 6 through 8 in the spring and 5 through 8 in the fall, though family requests for players younger than the minimum age will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Where a player’s skill level is such that they are no longer challenged at their normal age group, a family request for that player to play up with older players will generally be favorably considered.
