A championship roster can only have a maximum of 20 players, including pickup players. Player(s) names cannot be removed or replaced once the player on the roster has participated in championship play.
All teams are permitted to pick-up three players as follows:
Pick-up players must be selected only from teams no longer eligible for championship play.
EXCEPTION: A player that has been released from a team’s championship roster prior in accordance with the Player Release form.
Pick-up players must be from the team’s same or lower classification.
EXCEPTION: Players who are age eligible may be picked up by a lower age classification team.
The pickup player form will be posted here. All pickup players must be approved by tournament staff prior to the manager's meeting.
UNIFORMS: All players on a team shall properly wear uniforms that are like in color and style. Sleeves or straps of the uniform top may be adjusted, with or without tie-ups, to the comfort of the players, provided uniform numbers remain visible. If because of the blood rule a change is required and the uniform part does not match, the player will not be penalized. All protective equipment should be worn properly. If a player is requested by the umpire to remove jewelry, illegal shoes or illegal parts of the uniform and they refuse, the player will not be allowed to play.
HEADWEAR: Ball caps, visors and headbands are optional for players. If worn, they may be mixed, but must be worn properly. If one type or more than one type is worn, they all must be of the same color. Plastic visors are not allowed.
PANTS/SLIDING PANTS: All players’ pants may be long, short, or mixed in style, as long as they are like in color. Players may wear a solid-colored pair of sliding pants. It is not mandatory that all players wear sliding pants, but if more than one player wears them, they must be like in color and style.
Flexx Softball will be evaluating softball players to gather data which will be helpful in their development. Data collected will help us to set a baseline where we can start to create a road map to help each individual reach their goals.
Each player will have their own personal profile in which this data will be stored and accessible to the players and parents.
