2021 BPAA Fall Fastpitch Overview

Welcome to the 2021 Fall Fastpitch season! The Brooklyn Park Athletic Association is excited to welcome girls of all ages into the program, no matter their experience with the fastpitch game or softball in general. The fall league is a great way to introduce your young players to a fun, competitive game of softball. And at five weeks long, it’s a smaller commitment than the full summer program.

The Fall Fast Pitch League provides an opportunity for players to learn about the game and gain experience playing fast pitch. Practices will start in early August, after teams are established, and games (double headers) will be held on Saturday and Sunday afternoons (first games will be held on August 21st and 22nd and the last week of regular season games will be September 18th and 19th)  The State Tournament will be held on Sept. 25th and 26th.

At the 8U, 10U & 12U levels, we will offer an introductory environment for those who are new to fastpitch or new to softball altogether. Players will learn the fundamentals of the fastpitch game and how to succeed in a fun, fastpitch environment. Throughout the age groups, we will build teams that are competitive for returning fastpitch players. It is our goal to NOT turn anyone away.

Age Divisions: Whatever age the player will be on December 31, is the age they need to play for fall 2020. So, if they will turn 13 on or before December 31, they need to play on the 14U team, etc. Please note that the Board has final discretion on player placement on a team outside of their age berth.
