It works because
YOU make it happen.
Community Softball League is intended for players
with an interest in a house league recreational
experience as an enjoyable learning and development
experience for all of its participants, at every
division and skill level.
Teams are determined according to registrations within each local member association (spring deadline). Every effort is made to accommodate players throughout the league, to provide full participation.
A full season schedule, including mid-season tournament, and playoffs provides the opportunity to learn, develop and compete as a team player in a challenging fastball environment. Some outside opportunities may exist for further fastball experiences and play (at the coaches' discretion) but it is intended that each team and player commits to the CSL program, NOT in conjunction with OR in preparation for other competitions.
In Fastball, the ball is pitched with an underhand motion in a straight or flat line, to the catcher. Fastball pitchers use a pitching style where the pitcher’s arm comes from behind the body and drives forward, at hip level, for release. A 'windmill’ pitching style, characterized by a backwards circular motion over the head, completing the circle back down at the hip and forward to release, is an option.

Sharing the excitement of the season (updates to come):
...our first ever triple play tonight, in the top of the 7th, they had a runner on 1st and 2nd and hit a grounder to first. Our first baseman touched first and threw to 2nd and we made the tag on the runner and then gunned it home to get the runner out at home. That was definitely the TSN Turning Point as our girls were so pumped and excited, the parents and fans started cheering like crazy, it was nice to have such a good triple play in a key moment for us.
This was my daughter's first time playing fastball and we just wanted to thank the organizers for their time and effort in providing this opportunity. I especially appreciate the efforts of everyone this past weekend. The weather provided some challenges! But we all persevered & our season ended on a very positive note.
Letter from a Volunteer Coach (author unknown):
... I thought I’d write an open letter to all of you parents, even though I might never send it. I’ll start it this way: “I am a volunteer.”
In today's youth sports culture, things can get pretty intense. A quick reminder from a young athlete. (check link)
