Fall Ball League

Updated Friday July 13, 2018 by DGSA.

2018 Fall Ball Registration is now OPEN!

In order to improve competitive play and make the DGSA Fall Ball program more fun and exciting for the girls, significant changes have been made for the 2018 season.  Below is a summary of some of the key changes:

  • We will only play one night a week (except the first week will have 2 practices)
  • External teams outside of DGSA will no longer be participating
  • The same age divisions and rules as summer will be used (U6, U8, U10, SR).  The only difference is that players will play in the age division they will be in next summer, not the past summer.  This allows the girls to start getting experience at the next level of competitive play in preparation for the following season.  If requested, a player can play down to the same age division as summer based on skill levels.
  • A special family fun night and skills competition for the girls will take place the second week of the season (See below for more details)
  • Price is only $25 (or $20 with early bird discount)
  • More emphasis will be put into better splitting up teams to try to balance skill levels and ensure equal pitching and catching experience (for the older age divisions)

Also, stay tuned for more info on a few upcoming skills clinics for all DGSA girls the weeks of 7/30 and 8/6 (right before Fall Ball starts).  These clinics will focus on pitching, catching, fielding, and hitting.  They will be free for all DGSA members.  Watch your email and DGSA Facebook page for more information!

Below is more details about the Fall Ball season including which nights each age division will be playing on.
