Our fall ball season will take place starting mid-August and goes until early November. Our spring season will take place starting end of January and goes until end of April.
La Costa Fastpitch Softball provides a very FUN and recreational team environment to play softball for youth ages 5-14. We have participants that make up our league from many communities such as Carlsbad, San Marcos, Vista and Encinitas.
Our Seasons are Spring, All-stars and Fall Ball. Spring season runs January through the end of April. All skill levels from beginner to advanced are welcome. All-Stars is a competitive season that runs May 1-July. Fall Ball begins mid August-mid November and offers competitive play and recreational play.
LCYO is affiliated with the USA Softball Association (USA). Division age for Spring and All Stars Season is determined by age of player on September 1.
Our Pee-Wee division is fun and instructional, designed for our first year 5 and 6 year old players. It is the girls softball equivalent to T-Ball. The girls will hit off a batting “T” for the first part of the season and gradually work up to hitting off their coach’s pitch.
The LCYO Girls 8U Division is designed for seven and eight year olds. The season will feature live pitching by the players and some pitching by the coaches, round robin batting, and free substitution. The girls will be rotating defensively so that everyone has a chance to learn both infield and outfield positions. Most games and practices are held at La Costa Heights Elementary or Stagecoach Park (inter-league in the fall).
This division is oriented to 9 and 10 year old girls who are interested in recreational softball, team participation with spirit, and having lots of fun!!! Girls will face live pitching and learn infield and outfield positions, bunting, stealing bases and other advanced skills. Most games are played at Stagecoach Park. Some travel games to other (local) league fields might be scheduled.
This division is oriented to eleven and twelve old girls who are interested in recreational softball, team participation, spirit, and having a great time! Full USA rules are observed. Teams will bat around, and players will learn both infield and outfield positions. Most home games are played at Stagecoach Park. Some travel games will be scheduled with other local softball leagues.
Our 14U Division is our most competitive. We will inter-league with other teams in the North County area from Encinitas, Del Mar, Oceanside, Vista, San Marcos and Escondido and travel is likely once a week to those areas. Unlike our lower Divisions, 14U does not have minimum requirements for playing time, positions, etc. Games are played via strict USA Rules and playing time is at the discretion of the Coach/Manager.
