Howard-Suamico Youth Softball

2014 Softball Registration is closed.

New this Year - We have partnered with ASA softball.  Included in registration fee is a supplemental insurance police to help cover costs associated with any serious injury.  See ASA website for details.  Our senior league has expanded our partnership with Pulaski and now will be part of an area league that features 12 total area teams.

Play with a friend! - To encourage new participants in the youth softball program we are offering you the opportunity to play with a friend!  Any girl who has participated it the HYSA softball program in the past can sign up to be on the same team as a friend who has not participated it the HYSA softball program in the past.   Both girls must list each other on the registration form and will be placed on the same team at the draft.  We encourage you to use this opportunity to introduce softball to a friend who may not have played in the past or who has thought about playing but did not want to end up on a team where she did not know anyone else.  If you signed up to play with a friend in 2013 the same two girls may sign up together again in 2014.

Coaches and League Directors - We will need lots of help this spring with our league. In addition to coaches we also need volunteers for various roles.  Some volunteer projects are one night a few hours others involve multiple nights.  If you are able to volunteer any amount of time this year please indicate on your child's registration form in the appropriate area.
