Fall Softball Registration is now closed!

Dear South Pas Softball Fans,

Sorry for the late notice, but Fall Ball registration is now open (“Register Now!” link on the left) but will be closing Sunday August 28st so that we will have time to form teams and order jerseys.  The cost is the same as regular season, $150, and games will start the first week in September and go up to Thanksgiving.  We plan on offering teams in KidPitch 8U, Minors 10U, Majors 12U, and Juniors 14U.

We will be playing a full season of at least 14 games including doubleheaders.  As is the tradition in Fall Ball, there will be a mystery gift not available during the Spring Season.  I try to do a group sale, special order item that is not available to individuals.  We may see the return of the "SP" bat backpacks for the younger girls.  Last year we distributed "SP" embroidered Mizuno batting jackets. 

Games will be predominately on Saturday evenings and Sunday after 12 noon.  “Home” games will be at our beautiful Orange Grove Park, however we will be playing “away” against teams throughout the county.  There will not be regular practices.

We expect to see competition from teams in Alhambra, Azusa, Glendale, Glendora, Sierra Madre, Montebello, La Crescenta, La Canada, Los Angeles, Pasadena, Monterey Park, Rosemead, San Marino, and others.

There are no South Pasadena residential requirements in order to participate in SPLL Fall Ball, however there will be snack stand duties.

            REGISTER NOW.  Teams are going to fill up fast and once they are complete, you may be placed on a waiting list until there are enough players to start another team. You will be playing the same division as last Spring, however older players may move up a division if requested and/or to complete teams.  Please forward “Special Requests” to me privately.

            Thank you for your support of South Pasadena softball.

           Yours truly,

     Jon Takasugi, Commissioner of Softball

Why Kids Quit Sports - Interesting Article, Coaches and Parents!

From the author: "I believe there are five main reasons kids walk away from sports, and they all boil down to one common denominator: they cause kids to have a poor state of mind when it comes to sports.

  1. It's no longer fun
  2. They have lost ownership of the experience
  3. They don't get playing time
  4. They are afraid to make mistakes
  5. They feel disrespected
