Our Mission

Fostering teamwork, good sportsmanship, and community spirit

In 2023, BYSA completed its 40th year of providing recreational youth co-ed slow pitch softball. We thank the over 1300 players, volunteer coaches and volunteer commissioners for making it happen, with 91 teams playing 641 games. We are now ready for the 2024 season and look forward to another successful year. Any questions may be sent to bob@beavercreeksoftball.com or call Vicki at 937-422-4949.

Beginners and Kindergarten Leagues

Beginners & Kindergarten Leagues play with a soft foam ball. We have used this ball the last 2 years and the coaches agreed it was much better than a wiffle ball.

  • 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 approximately 50 minutes long, using wiffle ball bats and foam ball. Generally, there will be 8 to 9 players assigned to a team provided enough 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 the Rookie league(1st/2d graders) for regular softball.
