Minor participation in slow pitch

It has been brought to the attention of the Leagues that there is no documented age requirement in the Adult Slow Pitch Softball rules. It has been past practice to allow high school age players to play with parents on their teams. If the player was on the roster, the parent has always had to “sign for” the minor on the roster. The presidents of the three Leagues met as the Executive Committee and have adopted the following documented age requirement for Adult Slow Pitch.

Roster and Player Status.

A player must be fifteen (15) years of age by the end of the year (December 31) to be eligible to play. Any player under the age of 18 years must have a signed permission form or be signed for by a parent or guardian on the official roster before playing. Permission forms will be available at the concession stands at each field complex and also on the web-site. The form will be kept on file with the rosters. It is recommended that minor players wear a batting helmet at all times for concussion prevention.
