FIRST WEEKEND RESULTS (August 25th, 2015)

I've added the results of the games that I've received from the parks to the schedules. If you happen to notice that your games' results are missing, please do feel free to let us know those results. As well, if you see the results to your games are wrong, please let us know that. Please do not just write saying "we won or lost both games". We really do need the scores to your games. If you see we have the results wrong, we probably have the wrong scores in our documents. Thanks, Will

10U-ROOKIES

12U





12U UPDATE, AND SECOND HALF (August 18th, 2015)

The 12U schedule has changed. We no longer have a bye in 12U due to another team playing. The schedule has been changed for the teams that were able to play on the days that a bye was schedule for them.

For the first half, we had planned on playing 3 sets of games at both parks. Due to the amount of teams, instead of changing everything around and messing everyone up that had made requests for afternoons we instead dropped the 9AM set. For the second half of the season (starting the weekend after Labor Day weekend) we are going to go with 11AM and 3PM start times. If you are a team that told us you have church early on Sundays, please do remind us.

As a reminder, the dates for the second half are:
September 13
September 19 and 20
September 27





QUESTIONS WE'VE RECEIVED (August 12th, 2015)

Several of the questions that we've received actually can be answered in the Rules and Regs page. We have not updated it for 2015 yet, but the only items that will change have to do with A, B and C divisions (since we don't have those this year). If you haven't had a chance to read through the Rules pages, you can find that HERE.

Here are the answers to the questions we've received most often:

Do we only play one game each play date?
Each play date is a double-header. Per the Rules page... "The break between doubleheader games will be 20 minutes, unless both teams coaches agree to make it shorter (such as if games are running long)."

Do we have to supply a softball for each game?
From the rules page... "Each coach must supply one (1) new, or nearly new, yellow optic ball for each double-header (.47 core). 10U, 10U Rookies and 8U will use an 11-inch ball; 12U and older use 12-inch ball. No synthetic covered softballs allowed."

How do I know if one of my players is too old for the team (what is the age cut-off date)?
From the rules page... "Age is to be determined by ages on January 1 of the current year."





FIRST HALF SCHEDULES (August 10th, 2015)

Below are the links to the schedules for the first half of the season. Due to the requests we received for afternoon games, we cancelled the 9AM set this year. As always, once the games on August 30th are finished we will sit down and look at how the teams have done. We'll then complete the schedules for the second half and post them to the website. Please remember, we do not play games over the Labor Day weekend.

If you notice a mistake in the schedules, even if it's just a name mistake, please do let us know.

DIRECTIONS CORRECTION (July 10th, 2015)

Corrected directions to the North Des Moines complex. There is no longer a Target on Euclid.





UPDATED INFORMATION (July 9th, 2015)

The team entry form, roster form and directions page (links to the left) have been updated.

Team Entry Form - removed 14U and HS choices
Team Roster Form - corrected the e-mail address at the bottom of the page
Directions Page - removed all but directions to North Des Moines and South Des Moines complexes





INFORMATION FOR THE 2015 FALL BALL SEASON (July 8th, 2015)

This season there will not be 14U or High School divisions, due to declining participation in those age groups. Also, this year we only have 2 softball complexes hosting Fall Ball, North Des Moines and South Des Moines. We will be running 3 sets of games this season at each complex compared to 2 in past years (start times this year for each double-header will be 9AM, 1PM and 4:30PM). We can only allow 60 teams total between the age groups, so we are breaking it down into the following numbers:

12 8U teams
20 10U teams
10 Rookie teams
18 12U teams

We can tweak those numbers a bit when we see what numbers of entry forms come in but it looks to be a good starting point. This will be a "first come - first in" by paid entry forms.

I will be updating the entry form tonight (Wednesday) and will have it pushed out to the website either late tonight or Thursday morning. If you have all ready mailed in the 2014 form, that is fine. The costs have not changed. I just need to remove 14U and HS from the form, as well as the 10U and 12U divisions (no A, B and C).

The scheduled play dates for this year will be:

August 22 and 23
August 29 and 30
September 13
September 19 and 20
September 27

More information will be coming as I receive it. Thanks, Will
