Off-Season Information

Softball Off-Season Regulations
We get many questions about players and coaches participating in fall league softball teams. Below are some important guidelines:

  1. Coaches employed by the school to coach softball CANNOT coach teams with their potential players during the school year outside the season of sport. This includes head, assistant, and Rule 10 coach’s aides for grades 9-12.
  2. School employed coaches (head, assistant, Rule 10) may not give lessons/private instruction to potential players at their school during the school year outside the season of sport.
  3. No more than five (5) members of the school squad the previous season can play or practice on a non-school team during the school year outside the season of sport.
  4. School Year is defined as the Tuesday after Labor Day until the Saturday before Memorial Day.
  5. School squad is defined as A-team, B-team, 9th grade, C-team, JV, Varsity, etc. – these are all different squads.
  6. Any amount of time played (an inning, pinch running, pinch hitting, courtesy runner) constitutes team membership.
  7. If a player played on two levels the previous season (JV & V) they would count as one of the five (5)possible JV players and one of the five (5) Varsity players.
  8. Players may not be rotated in from week to week or game to game. The roster established for the non-school team may have no more than five (5) from the same school squad.
  9. School transportation cannot be used to take students to fall league games.
  10. A school coach could transport the players to the fall league but not in school vehicles and cannot coach them.
  11. School year is defined as the Tuesday after Labor Day until the Saturday before Memorial Day.
  12. If the Middle School/Junior High does not have a softball program the 9th graders would not be limited to five (5) because they have not been on a school team the previous year.
  13. Once the school season starts (first day of practice) players may not play or practice on a non-school team until their membership on the school team is over.
  14. While a member of the school team a player may not participate on an outside team in that same sport. They may participate in other activities, but should inform the school coach.
  15. In the spring, after a player is no longer a part of the school team, players are restricted to no more than five (5) players playing or practicing on the same non-school team until the Saturday before Memorial Day. [Continue]
