League Principles
CSL Rules of Play      10 Misunderstood Rules (PWSA)
NO competitive or select groups.
Previous season "Tier I / II" players eligible only at a DIVISION above their age category.

FAQs


Submit game scores

RULE #1:  Obey the rules.
RULE #2:  Rules are NOT made to be broken.
RULE #3:  Rules don't only apply to those who choose to follow them.

Rules and policies are made to establish an even and fair playing field for all of our participants.  They keep those "circumstances" from becoming an "advantage" for some and a disadvantage for others.
It works because
 

YOU make it happen.
The 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.

FROM the DIAMONDS

Playoffs!!  WAY TO PLAY!!
Thank you to our associations.

An exciting end to the season.

Somewhere behind the athlete she has become, and hours of practise,
 is a little girl who picked up a ball, fell in love with the game, and never looked back.

Thank you for a wonderful season. 
My girls very much enjoyed themselves. 


All that rain didn't ruin our FUN!
It couldn't dampen the spirits of our participants.
Great sportsmanship, enthusiasm, cooperation, facilities, crews and...
a lot of determination made for a successful weekend of ball at the diamonds.


The weather provided some challenges!
But we all persevered & our season ended on a very positive note.

Some exciting division finishesbefore Playoffs

There really was a great deal of teamwork today
...trying to help each other
...(coaches and convenors) all trying to help us get enough players.


All in all, it really was a good game and all of the call ups did a great job.

The score is not indicative of the great game that it was.

Their team played a great game
...by far the best they've ever played against us
...they had some really great hits.


She got to pitch, tonight…came off the field with a smile.

They are getting better every day.

We are all looking forward to next year...

We like playing against that team. They are fun.


The coaches were awesome....
...they were really great with the girls and weren't about the win.
It was a lot of fun.


It was such a good game

The SMILES are what count.


We're having a ball.


COACHES,
the impact of the experiences
and memories these players take away,
from the opportunities you give them,
will last a life time.

Great fun and sportsmanship, again, in 2016.

Sharing the excitement of the season (updates to come):

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.

BEYOND the competitition

We invited them to meet...after the game to celebrate a great season and yet another amazing game between us.  It was 5-5 going into the bottom of the last inning and (they) took it 6-5.

...it was a nice game tonight.

...we were down by 6 in the bottom of 4.

...could have put their first pitcher back in but used a girl who had never pitched before.

It was a very nice game and all players , coaches, and parents from both teams all seemed to enjoy themselves.
GREAT EFFORT by all
...7 girls missing
...had to call up girls but ended up having only 8 players. 
After getting down 9-0 early in the game...they battled hard right to the very end and ended up coming back to win it. 
It was such a good game.

For the 4th time this year, our game came down to the last at bat.  They had bases loaded with the tieing run on 2nd and the winning run on 1st.  I really enjoy our games, they really are very good games...

...had a great time after another great game between us on the diamond.


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.”
