As we get closer to the start of the 2022 Spring Softball Season, below are some key items for the upcoming season.

 

Team Assignments
Team assignments have been sent out by the head coaches. If you have not heard from your daughter’s coach yet, please email ryegirlssoftball@gmail.com and let us know.

 

Communication

We will continue to use this site (www.ryegirlssoftball.com) to store important information about our league. Our Board and coaches will use the TeamSnap app to communicate with you directly once teams are set regarding schedules and other logistics.

Opening Day

Given the late Easter/Passover holiday, we are intending to begin games for some of our divisions on April 2nd and 3rd, weather permitting. However, we expect to return to our traditional Opening Day Parade this year! Opening Day is scheduled for Saturday, April 23rd. We will pause Rye Girls Softball activities from April 8th through April 17th for spring break and then pick it back up that next week. Our Opening Day Parade will be held in combination with our partners at Rye Little League for this amazing community event. The parade begins at Rye Grill and Bar, through Purchase Street, down Milton Road, and ends at Disbrow Park where there will likely be food and activities for everyone. More details to come later.

 

Uniform Distribution/Required Equipment

We hope to distribute uniforms by the end of March. All players will receive a team jersey, pair of socks, and a hat. We have redesigned the jerseys this year and are excited for you to see their enhanced quality, vibrant colors, empowering team names, and sponsor names (who are instrumental in helping us sustain the high quality of the league). Players will be responsible for providing their own gloves, cleats, black softball pants, protective metal face mask, and a batting helmet. Most players have their own bats. The league provides catcher’s equipment, balls, bats, training equipment, etc.

 

DICK’S Sporting Goods 20% Off Shopping Event
From Friday, March 18th through Monday, March 21st, the White Plains Dicks Sporting Goods store location will be hosting the annual Rye Little League Discount Day to assist families and players with preparing for the upcoming season. This discount also applies to Rye Girls Softball. We will email the coupon link out and you will need to provide at checkout to receive the discount.

 

COVID-19 Rules and Regulations
We are hopeful that we can keep our COVID protocols very limited this season. At this stage, we are planning to keep it as simple as: If you are required to quarantine, you cannot participate in Rye Girls Softball. However, a lot can change in the next few months, so we will provide any necessary updates shortly before our season starts.

 

District 20 Affiliation

We are thrilled to begin this season as a newly inducted member of Little League Softball (District 20), which allows for play with surrounding communities in addition to our usual recreation play within our community. For more information on this national affiliation, please visit https://www.littleleague.org.

 

Be on the lookout for league-specific information over the next several weeks, and please feel free to e-mail ryegirlssoftball@gmail.com with any questions.
