SPRING SEASON (2024)

Why Play in Spring?

The CSA spring season is always an exciting time to play softball among close friends. It's our most popular season and a great opportunity for players to continue to build on their skills and experience.  While there is significant focus on fundamental skills, the season remains competitively fun with intra-league games playing other teams involved in the league.

CSA is forming  6U, 8U, 10U, 12U and 14U teams.

Volunteer Information

VOLUNTEER SHIFTS AND CHECK DEPOSIT POLICY

Parents are required to fill two 2-hour volunteer shifts for each child registered in the league. The shifts may be completed in the snack bar or during field preparation. An online volunteer schedule will be posted prior to the start of the season to allow parents to sign up for shifts.

A volunteer deposit check of $300 will be collected from you by your team parent. If your two shifts are not completed by a responsible adult as scheduled, your deposit check will be cashed. After volunteer shifts are completed, your check will be shredded or returned to you per your request.
