Fall Ball

This year the league will collect fees and coordinate registration.

Registration closes July 26 so that we can make sure we have an adequate number of managers and coaches to appropriately form teams. Girls are not guaranteed a spot on a team as we first have to verify we have enough managers to place all of the girls.

Fall ball is organized different than spring play. Our competitive teams organize themselves by manager (they fill their entire squad on their own) and travel the county playing other teams seeking high level competition similar to that seen during all-stars. Teams may even opt to play in travel ball tournaments in San Diego or beyond. There is more information on this type of play (GFL) below.

For all other play our girls enter the Clairemont fall league which is similar to our spring recreation league. Managers are able to protect more girls in the fall so that friends have a chance to play together. This is a more casual option and intended to be an enjoyable experience while advancing skills.

Please note that Fall Ball registration is no longer open unless your player has already been invited to join a team by a manager. If you have not been contacted by a manager please do not register at this time as there are no additional spaces available.

Fall ball is a great time to help our league develop girls. In order to make fall ball happen and not “turn away” girls, we need Managers and Coaches. Please indicate on the interest list form. Even if you’re not sure every year there is a group of girls that need a coach to step up and take a team. Please let us know if you can fill the need when the time comes.

Fall Ball Playing Options:

Clairemont Fall Ball League

PYSA has taken teams to the structured Clairemont fall ball league for years. We will continue to have this as an option. Girls looking to gain experience and advance their skills will have tons of fun playing on one of these fall ball teams.

Managers are able to construct their team saving 7 players (6 plus their player) during the fall season (opposed to just 1 during spring). One game is played each Sunday at Clairemont or Robb Field.

This is a competitive league and a great option for our girls. If you are unsure where your player should spend her fall time, Clairemont is likely the place for her.

Girls Fast Pitch League (GFL)

Experienced girls with advanced skill levels may be asked to join a team that opts for GFL as opposed to Clairemont. This league is constructed of teams from San Diego County that put their own squad together and play outside other fall ball leagues at a more competitive level. Most teams will play double headers every weekend and travel to opponent fields at various locations throughout the county.

Managers construct these teams on their own and coordinate all activity on their own. PYSA does not regulate who manages the team, how many girls are on the team or any details of their play. Managers can request assistance with field coordination for practice and games and can coordinate uniforms so that it makes it easier to find substitutions on game day.

If you have interest in playing on a team that opts for GFL you would either need to be the Manager who constructs their own team that opts for GFL or you would need to coordinate with another manager who is doing so. PYSA does not coordinate placing girls on these teams.
