The Community Softball League (CSL) provides the opportunity for girls (ages 8 to 21) to be involved in the game of fastball. It is intended for players with an interest in a recreational house league, 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). Efforts are made to accommodate players throughout the league.
In Fastball (aka Fast Pitch) Softball, 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. Rules allow for use of the 'windmill’ pitching style, as an option, characterized by a backwards circular motion above the head, completing the circle back down at the hip and forward to release. Pitchers may also use a style where the pitcher's arm completes only the bottom half or three-quarters of the windmill motion; this pitching style is often used for arms not developd for throwing a full windmill pitch.
