Peninsula Youth Softball Association (PYSA) is a San Diego based, recreational fastpitch softball league for girls ages 4-16. Originally founded in 1966 as Peninsula Girls Bobby Sox, it became Peninsula Youth Softball Association in 1994; PYSA is nonprofit, volunteer-driven and affiliated with the Amateur Softball Association (ASA). The league attracts girls from central San Diego’s coastal communities such as Point Loma, Ocean Beach, Pacific Beach, Bay Park as well as neighborhoods in Mission Hills, Hillcrest, North Park, Downtown/Golden Hill, Old Town and many more! Our girls come from more than 27 local schools, and approximately 30% of the players have siblings in the league.
Youth softball teaches discipline, builds character, increases confidence, and creates special memories that last a lifetime. In addition to softball skills, our girls learn about dedication, hard work, and leadership. They develop friendships with girls from different schools and backgrounds. As players transition to middle school, often they are in the company of friends they have played with for years at PYSA.
Please contact us with any questions and to join in the excitement, camaraderie and fun of PYSA youth softball. We look forward to seeing your daughter playing out on the peninsula!
PYSA teams play and practice “softball by the sea” at Robb Athletic Field, which is located just off highway 8 in beautiful Ocean Beach and adjacent to the San Diego River. PYSA hosts an annual “Cool Breeze” tournament in June that attracts hundreds of girls representing leagues from all over San Diego County. The mid season “Cooler Breeze” event is held during Spring Break and provides tournament style competition for softball teams around the county.
Following spring recreational softball, PYSA encourages girls who want to further develop their talent and skill to participate in All-Stars. PYSA’s All-Star program typically fields 8U, 10U, and 12U teams. In addition to PYSA’s own Cool Breeze tournament, our Breakers All-Star teams participate in regional All-Star tournaments such as the Coronado Bash at the Bay, North Shore Coastal Classic, and Poway Summer Heat Classic.
The PYSA league is committed to providing an enriching team sport experience to the young girls from the community. Our mission is to teach the fundamentals of softball and instill in its members the principles of good sportmanship, leadership, and team work though organized and supervised clinics, practices, and games. Our league strives to build a strong sense of community in an environment that is fun and instills a life-long love of the game.
