BYSA 2021

In 2020, BYSA completed its 37th year of providing recreational youth slow pitch softball. We felt blessed that last season was completed despite all the uncertainty and we thank the nearly 1100 players, volunteer coaches and volunteer commissioners for making it happen while staying safe with no reported Covid cases. We are now ready for the 2021 season and look forward to another successful year.

3 March 2021: Beginners & Kindergarten Leagues will play Wiffle Ball! Wiffle Ball is divided into two leagues:

  • Beginner’s league for 3-4 years old (Pre-K) at start of the season.
  • Kindergarten league for 5-6 years old (Older Pre-K/completed K) at start of the season.

The objectives are to teach the fundamentals of softball, teamwork, and sportsmanship. Games are approx. 50 minutes long, using wiffle balls and bats. Generally, there will be 8 players assigned to a team provided parents are willing to coach. Everyone plays the entire game. Parents pitch and instruct players. Batters are not required to wear helmets but may do so if they choose. An umpire is provided by BYSA. Games are played weekdays only; no weekend games. Parents are encouraged to call 937-422-4949 to discuss individual circumstances, especially the option of playing up into 1/2 Rookie league for regular softball.

BYSA is gearing up for its 38th season. Registration forms will be available by March 4 at the preschools / kindergarten / elementary schools and also at the library and city buildings. You can also request the forms by emailing
