The SYA Instructional Softball Program is unique in Washington County offering instructional softball opportunities to girls between the ages 5 and 11(1st thru 5th grade). Registration starts in January, with the season running from March through June. Uniform shirts, hats, trophies, and a year-end party are provided as part of the registration fee. 

Team sizes are kept at a minimum with a goal of 7-9 players on each team. 

  • All players participate as batters in each inning,  and play in the field each inning.
  • Score is not kept during the games.
  • The league uses a pitching machine operated only by coaches.  The machine throws a modified softer softball - fast pitch style at approximately 25 mph. 

Safety is a priority at all games and practices which are conveniently located at the Smithsburg Sluggers Baseball fields to the rear of the Smithsburg Volunteer Fire Department. 

Practices and games are normally on Wednesday evenings between 6pm and 8pm and Sunday afternoons between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Changes to this schedule could occur due to weather or other unforeseen situations.

There are no residency requirements and we encourage children from other communities to participate in our league. 

Registration Fee:

  • $40 from Jan 1st till Feb 14th

  • $50 from Feb 15th to March 14th

  • $60 after March 15th if there is still space available
