South Central Pennsylvania Softball (formally the York County Junior Girls Softball League) has transitioned to a new website, which is found here at www.scpas.org. Please feel free to visit often as we move content into this new site.
The Board of Directors of South Central PA Softball is considering changes to the summer season playoff schedule. Currently, the format is a weeknight event that extends over the course of 7 or 8 days. The proposal would have all games scheduled over a weekend. Playoff games would be scheduled on a Friday evening, continue anytime Saturday (including under the lights), anytime Sunday (if necessary- including under the lights), and Monday evening (if necessary - may be reserved for additional games, but only in the case of rain). This format may require more than one game in one day, but with the schedule extending over the weekend, would be no more then two games in one day.
This format will allow us to fix the dates well in advance and teams will know that they will play on that weekend.
All games will be played at the Hoffman Complex as occurs now.
The Board of Directors is seeking written comments. Comments must be sent to David Eckman by email at
and the submitter must be able to be identified.
The 12U Lady Revs - Kittinger Team is currently in need of 2 or 3 additional players for the 2014/2015 tournament season. For additional information and to schedule an opportunity to work out with the team, please contact Coach Tom Kittinger by email at
or by telephone at 717-476-0960.
South Central PA Softball Accepting Umpire Applicants
South Central Pennsylvania Softball is currently looking to add qualified, ASA certified umpires to officiate its youth, girls fast pitch games. Umpires for SCPAS are independent contractors, receive their assignments online and have the option of being paid by direct deposit or by check. New officials for SCPAS should have some verifiable umpiring experience. More information can be obtained by emailing to
or calling 717-916-3963.
The Board of Directors of South Central Pennsylvania Softball, at their July meeting, passed a package of administrative enhancements that will help us to serve our teams and players better. These enhancements will be phased in over the next several months. The first in the series of changes is that the Board of Directors has authorized the League to acquire its own telephone and telephone number to use for league business. "As we move forward with other items to help us function more efficiently, it was critical that we move away from the simple policy where we just reimburse someone for their telephone calls" said David Eckman, President of SCPAS, Inc. The League Administration can now be reached at 717-916-3963.
The rules for the 2014 playing season of South Central Pennsylvania Softball are now finalized and can located by using this link. Rule changes are solicited from all interested parties and go through a thorough review process before being voted on by the Executive Board in November. The rules are then rewritten and edited for clarity.
As organizations build their teams for the 2014 playing season, please take into consideration that there is not a major and minor division in 14U and 18U. In order to achieve our goal of limiting the necessary travel for our teams, the combining of these divisions becomes necessary.
Finally, we will be following the same format as we did last year, where all teams in the 14U amd 18U age groups, and the major division teams in the 10U and 12U age groups will play in the post season. Teams will be grouped in their respective playoff bracket based on their accumulated points during the regular season.
