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 is pleased to announce that SCPAS will be hosting a "Futures" Tournament on May 16. The Futures Tournament is a one day, 3 game guarantee tournament, specifically designed for 8U kids. "I have watched a couple of these events and it looked like a lot of fun for everyone involved" said David Eckman, President of SCPAS. The 8U tournament features all coach pitching and two defensive coaches are allowed in the field to assist the young players in directing where to throw the ball. The tournament will be played at the Hoffman Stadium Complex."There are no balls and strikes and everyone bats. The event is about having fun in a tournament atmosphere and but there will be a first and second place winner and plenty of opportunities for good pictures" Eckman continued. More information can be obtained at this link and a copy of the tournament rules can be found here. Online registration is required for the tournament through the "team registration page" on this website.
The SCPAS Board of Directors is happy to announce that our annual pre season scrimmage event for the 10U Coach Pitch Divisions and the 12U Minor divisions will be held on May 2, 2015 with a rain date of Sunday May 3, 2015. The event will be held at the Zion View Complex. "This is such a great event on so many levels" said David Eckman, President of SCPAS. "And the Zion View facility is a great place to hold this event". Registration for the event is now open.
At its January meeting, the Board of Directors approved the 2015 calendar for its events. All the dates have been put in the master calendar on the website. Of particular note is the pre season scrimmage event on May 2, with a rain date of May 3. The first day for regular season games will be May 4 and the last day for regular season games will be on July 24. In 2015, the post season playoffs will be held on July 31, Aug 1 and Aug 2.
As customary, our partners at the York Revolution will hold Softball Night on August 6.
At the January meeting of South Central PA Softball, the Board of Directors overwhelmingly approved a change to the 2015 summer season playoff schedule. The playoffs for all ages and playoff divisions will be played on Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday (if necessary). All games will be played at the Hoffman Complex in York. "The Board of Directors heard from a number of interested parties, the vast majority of which supported the change" said David Eckman, President of SCPAS. John Myers, Board Member and West Manchester Representative indicated that he recognized that the new format may be unattractive for those teams and players that participate in tournament ball, but thought this change was best for all the teams in general. In 2015, the playoffs will be on July 31, August 1 and August 2.
SCPAS is currently recruiting both new and experienced fast pitch umpires for its 2015 season. Opportunites exist for all levels of umpires. For new umpires, no experience is required and training is provided. Interested parties should call the SCPAS office at 717-916-3963 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 16U Lady Rev's is actively looking for a few more players that can join the team for the 2015 spring and summer tournament season. Please contact head coach David Eckman at
or 717-424-6974 for additional information and an opportunity to work out with the team.
As teams begin preparing for the 2015 SCPAS recreational league season, the Board of Directors has approved a change in the team fee schedule. The base price for a team to enter in summer season play will remain at $625 per team. However, once each team uploads their official player roster for the team, the team will be billed $5 per player on that team. Planning has begun for the 2015 summer season - check back often as team registration will open soon.
