Rec Leagues

Updated Thursday March 12, 2015 by OYO.

The following structure has been adopted by the OYO Board of Directors for our in-house program in conjunction with ASA Softball.  It is our intent to match the players by age.  We feel placing players in their correct age level offers the best possible experience for all involved.

Age cut-offs for each season are as follows:

  • Spring Ball – All softball players are eligible for the league based on their age as of January 1, 2015.
  • Fall Ball - All softball players are encouraged to play in the league they will participate in the following spring and should base their registration on their age of as of January 1, 2016.

A graphical summary is provided below, and each individual league page provides additional perspective about the rules and regulations for that league.

* Denotes time limits may override number of innings allowed to be played.

** Denotes due to our “limited make-up policy”, a consistent set of games is listed.  Any games above that number should be considered a seasonal bonus.  However, due to weather and field conditions beyond our control, this goal may not be achieved by all teams.
