The league conducts recruitment days prior to the start of the season. You must attend one of these in order to get rated, even if you’ve already committed to a team.

When does the league play?

New South Softball has seasons in Fall and Spring. Fall typically begins in September. Spring usually starts Mid-March.

Do I have to have experience to play?

Absolutely not! From 20 years to 0 days, the NSSL is for all skill levels.

What kind of bat can I use?

Per regulations, ASA certified bats are allowed in the NSSL. ASA recently merged with USA. So USA and ASA bats are allowed on the field of play.
