Our fielding face mask policy is as follows:
|FALL RECREATIONAL "REC"||FALL "SELECT"|
|Overview||The "Rec" program is competitive, but has less intensity and weekly time commitment compared to the Select program. It does not require an invitation from a coach. Fall ball includes all divisions.||The "Select" program is highly competitive with a greater time commitment required. Players must be selected by the Select team coach and the selection process is completely at the coach's discretion.|
|Practices||Once per week. At times an additional non-mandatory practice could be scheduled, i.e., batting cages||2-3 per week|
|Games||1 game every Sunday. They may be in Laguna Niguel or any of the other OC Fall Ball league locations.||2 games (double-header) every Sunday. They can be in Laguna Niguel or any of the other Select leagues' locations.|
|Tournaments||Tournaments are tentative and will be scheduled in October/November based on OC Fall Ball.||Pumpkin Classic in October and Turkey Tournament in November. There may be an additional volunteer requirement or buyout.|
|Selection Process||There are no "evaluations" during Fall Ball.||Coaches will "select" girls from those that express interest. Due to the limited number of teams, not all girls will be "selected." If you are not selected, you will be placed on a recreational team.|
|Fees||Registration fee only||Registration fee plus $100 Select fee|
|Buyout||There is no buyout required||A buyout fee of $150 will be collected. Every Select family is required to either work (at least 4 hours) at the Pumpkin Tournament (field prep, snack bar, or parking attendant) or buy out of their commitment.|
Friend requests are only allowed for players new to softball.
Only ONE friend request is allowed and please note that if multiple girls request the same friend it may not be possible to honor all the requests. We will do the best we can but can not guarantee placement with the requested friend.
Please fill in the "Friend Request" field when registering for fall season in order for your request to be considered.
All adults who interact with the players on the field/dugout in practices/games must fill out the USA Softball Background check form. Please click on the link below to complete a background check. This must be done annually, each September.
