LYA Fall Softball 2022

Welcome to LYA Softball!  We are finishing up a successful Spring season which saw our Minors and Majors teams competing in the Madness and District All-Star championship games.  Add to that an up and coming Rookies division and exciting new Quickball program and we are happy to say that Lionville softball is once again a force to be reckoned with.

Registration is now OPEN for LYA Fall Softball.   Please go to LYA Softball Registration to register for 2022 Fall Softball.  Early Bird discounts ($25 off registration fee) run until August 14th.  Regular registration runs until the start of the season.  Divisions will close when they are full.  Player age for the Fall season is based on their 2023 Little League “League Age”.  If you would like to register as a coach for the 2022 Fall Season, please go to LYA Volunteer Registration.

Our Fall softball program is designed to provide an opportunity for girls from ages 6-16 to continue to play softball and work on their skills.  It gives girls moving up in 2023 to a new division the opportunity to play with the new rules and equipment at that level.  It also allows girls that are new to the sport or just want to try softball an opportunity to learn the game.  We encourage two sport athletes to give softball a try in the Fall, we’ve had great success with these girls playing softball over the past couple years.  The girls will play games against other LYA teams, as well as against other teams located in Little League’s District 28 which encompasses most of Chester County.


2022 FALL SEASON programs:

Rookies – (2014 & 2015 birth years) – The Rookies division focuses on the fundamentals of softball and teamwork.  Besides throwing, catching, hitting and base running, our goal is to help girls fall in love with the great game of softball.  The Rookies division does introduce “kid pitch” alongside coach pitch to keep the game moving.  

Minors – (2011 thru 2013 Birth Years) - The Minors division continues with skill development while introducing more advanced softball concepts such as stealing, bunting, outfield relays, more pitching and catching. Players do the pitching, with a modified "coach-pitch" rule that allows coaches to step in and pitch in lieu of batters reaching base via a "base on balls" (walk). 

Majors – (2010 & 2011 Birth Years) – The Majors program is the pinnacle of Little League Softball with increased pitching distance, more competitive rules, and a faster game.  The Majors adds dropped third strikes and infield flies to the rules and moves to 9 fielders as opposed to 10 in Minors and Rookies.  It also moves from an 11” softball to a 12” softball plus the pitching rubber moves back to 40 feet.

Junior/Senior – (2006 thru 2009 birth years) - This is a player's first opportunity to play on a high school dimension softball field with traditional softball rules.  The pitching rubber moves back to 43 feet in Jr/Sr.
