USA Softball Minnesota and Minnesota Softball use http://www.josoftball.com to create our rosters. Your roster is your passport to play softball in Minnesota.
As of the end of the 2017 season we have captured over 4,700 rosters and 29,000 players.
The roster system allows you to create a roster using previously created players. If the player exists in our database, you will not need to recreate the player. Rather you can search, select, and add them. It can take as little a one (1) minute to create a team.
Create a girls’ fast pitch roster at http://www.josoftball.com.
Click on “Team Managers” in the upper right corner of the website http://www.josoftball.com/admin/account.
If you have created a roster before on this site, simply log in.
If you have not created a roster before on this site, click “Register as a New Manager” and fill out the subsequent form http://www.josoftball.com/admin/account/register.
Click on “Teams” in the left menu.
To view teams that you have created, click on “View Teams” in the left menu. If your team for this season exists in there, you may edit it and the players and the roster, and then submit for review again.
To add a new team, click on “Add Team” in the left menu.
Fill out the following information to create your new team:
These systems have databases of players stored in them which you are accessing. If you type a person’s name or part of their name, you will see a list of candidates. If you only type “Johnson” you will get a couple hundred candidates. One common names get more specific like “Suzy Johnson” or “Suzy Johnson”. If the player has a less common last name like Pfeffer, just enter “Pfeffer” and there should be a small list of candidates.
Many of the people that created player data used names other than formal names. You might want to search on different types of spellings or renderings like “Suzy”, “Susan”, or even “Sue”.
This should send you to the Teams page which has all of the teams you have created under this log in. It will show up as pending until the administrators have had time to review your team.
You can create players with little or no information. However, that leads to you having to fill this out every weekend when you turn your roster in by hand. Do yourself and everyone involved in operating tournaments by entering all of the above information as accurately as possible.
Once your roster is approved you may perform a few tasks.
All you need to do is go back to http://www.josoftball.com and log in.
After that you add players like you did before.
The roster and the new players will need to be approved by staff after you do this.
You can now print your roster in the admin section. It is available in 2018 in PDF format. After your roster is approved we highly encourage you to download the PDF in the admin section and keep a copy with you at all tournaments.
Always print in landscape format if at all possible. It represents best on paper that way.
Read this and follow instructions when creating your roster.
This is a mobile responsive website. You can create a roster on your phone. However, the mobile site does have less features and is a little more difficult. For best results, try to sit down at a desktop or laptop to create your roster.
If you submit a roster without the necessary player information (name, address, city, state, zip, birthdate, phone, email) you can expect the roster to be denied and/or delayed.
Your team really ought to have a roster prior to playing in any Minnesota Softball or USA Softball tournament. Get your roster created as soon as you get the kids' information collected.
No one ever got in trouble for turning a roster in early. The earlier you get your roster in the more likely it will be approved quickly. If you are going to wait until a Friday night before a tournament chances are it won't be touched until Monday morning defeating the purpose of filling it out.
If you wait until the roster entry deadline there will be a delay in getting it approved as well. There are typically around 3,000 rosters per year for us to approve.
If you need help email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you as quickly as we can. Facebook messaging and texting is not the best option here. Please email so I can keep track of work I need to do. Texting and sending Facebook messages will only get lost.
