Welcome to the home of Capital Area Youth Softball Association - Home of the Mainiacs!
CAYSA Covid-19 Information Page:
CAYSA is pleased to announce we will be running modified House seasons for 10u Majors, 12u & 14u in 2020.
Heres what we know so far:
We will be following the USA Softball of Maine & Maine State CDC guidelines; our CAYSA specific guidelines are in draft form and will be released shortly.
USA Softball Back to the Ballpark Guidance 05/11/2020
Maine CDC COVID19 Prevention Checklist Industry Guidance 05/20/2020
We will announce either team placement or the need for player assessments based on that registration. We hope to have teams formed shortly after the 7th, and will begin practices immediately. The plan is for all 3 leagues to be playing games before the end of June. All 3 age groups will play an 8 game season with a season ending single elimination playoff. We anticipate to finishing the season by the end of July. Game schedules will not be announced until sometime after teams are formed - honestly we have no idea what to expect this summer, this is vastly different to our norm for a multitude of reasons - so we ask for a little patience!
10u Majors league will be available to all current 8, 9 & 10 (as of 1/1/2020) year olds who played in our Majors league last year. Girls who played in our Minors system last season will be considered. As of right now we do not plan to run a modified Minors or Instructional season, but hope to be able to do something (clinics, play dates) for these age groups later in the summer as things continue to improve.
12u is for girls who were born in 2007 or 2008
14u is for girls who were born in 2005 or 2006.
Cost for each age group will be $75. This may be a little more than seasons in our recent past, but we have extra costs associated with Covid-19 and, as of right now, will not be running concessions this season, which is a loss of revenue for CAYSA (but it gets parents out of snack shack duty!)
All CAYSA events are open to all girls in the local communities and beyond!
