Welcome to the San Mateo Youth Softball Association

    Eagles Fastpitch Tryouts for Fall 2022

    2022 Fall Ball is here!!

    Want to play fall ball? SMYSA in conjunction with the Peninsula league is offering a Fall Ball program. Details as follows:

    SMYSA is helping to coordinate interested players and coaches for Fall Ball. This is a terrific way for your daughters to continue playing softball to keep their skills sharp or to 'introduce' them to the next age group if they are moving up next spring (i.e. from 8U to 10U, 10U to 12/14U). Teams will play in the Peninsula League and compete against other local teams from around the bay area. Local travel is required.

    The season typically runs from the first week of September thru the first week of November. Team practices typically begin in mid-August. Unlike Spring, teams are formed and administered by coaches—they are responsible for calculating and collecting fees, uniform ordering, scheduling practices, and gathering and retaining insurance information for players. SMYSA will work with the San Mateo teams to provide budget templates, coordinate field practices & batting cage times at Chanteloup, and help pair players with teams. Typical cost is around $125.00 per player. Fall Ball is a more relaxed program to allow our players to do other sports/activities. Games are typically on the weekends, either Friday night, Saturday or Sunday. One game for the 8's and double header for the 10's & 12/14U.

    There are also no tryouts for 8U, 10U, and 12/14U. SMYSA will do its best to ensure every girl who wants to play finds a home. But the number of teams is dependent on how many players and coaches sign up, so placement onto a team is not guaranteed. And we need coaches in order to form teams! Questions about coaching? Direct your inquires to Vince DeFriese -  /  650.222.8503

    Deadline to register is August 4, 2022

    Age Groups

    In Fall Ball, players typically play at the age group that they will play in the following spring:

    8U - Born in 2014 or 2015
    10U - Born in 2012 or 2013
    12/14UU - Born in 2009 or 2011

    In addition, we will be offering our competitive Eagles program for our 12's / 14's /16's! This will be a tryout process. More information to come.
