ABOUT US

LTYA Softball
We are a recreational youth sports league that emphasizes participation over competition, and education over performance. We strive to ensure that all participants, regardless of skill level, have the opportunity to play and we expect managers, coaches, and parents to maintain a safe, positive, and nourishing environment.

Our softball program's home site is the Field of Dreams in Bee Cave, TX. We serve the Lakeway, Bee Cave, Spicewood, and surrounding areas. However, LTYA accepts players from any community regardless of residence.

LTYA Softball is currently affiliated with PONY (Protect Our Nation's Youth - PONY.org) and is governed by its Rules and Procedures including authorized bats.

Softball games are held on Saturdays. About half of the games will be at the Field of Dreams in Bee Cave and the other half will be on the road at other nearby leagues. Our partner leagues' fields are generally within 15-30 minutes of the Field of Dreams. Practices are held once a week and the day/time will be determined once we have coaches in place.

Wee ball is a bit different in that they don't practice on a separate day. They have one hour each Saturday morning, usually beginning at 8 or 9 am. The first 30 minutes is devoted to practice and learning how to play the game while the second 30 minutes is a game against another team. Wee ball is the most parent-driven division as the players usually need a lot of encouragement to understand how to play.

If you wish to learn more about LTYA Softball or understand how you can help, please contact any member of our Softball Board.

ALL-STAR INFORMATION

General Information:

All-Stars takes place immediately after the Spring Season. All registered softball players are able to self-nominate, but they must try out to be considered for the team. In order to try out for the team, the child must have parental consent. Trying out does not guarantee a slot on the team. All-Stars is a bigger time commitment for players and coaches than the regular season requirements. 

Selection Process:

Commitment Requirements: If your child is selected to a 2023 All-Star Team, the following requirements must be met.

1. All-Star registration fee ($250) to be paid in full before the All-Star draft takes place, and it will only be refunded if your daughter is not selected. This fee covers uniform (one jersey, a belt, and a pair of socks), tournament emblem, field usage, insurance, and PONY tournament fees.
2. Players must be available for all All-Star activities; including but not limited to practices, practice games, team meetings, and regular scheduled games/tournaments.
3. Travel expenses (if any) are the responsibility of each player’s family.
4. Understanding that if your child is selected for one of the 2023 All-Star teams, participation in games is the coach's decision. Your child may not participate in every game at every tournament. There is no 2-inning rule during the All-Star season.

Time Commitment:
All-Star teams will practice at least 2 times a week. This effort begins immediately at the end of the regular season and will continue to the middle of July. Tournament weekends are usually Friday-Sunday, but the World Series is a whole week. Warm up tournaments, Sectionals, and Regionals are usually played in Round Rock or Georgetown. The World Series switches between Laredo, TX and Louisiana each year.

Tournaments: The dates for the current year come out in April.
Coaches Meeting: TBD
Warm Up: TBD (usually the last weekend of May)
Warm Up: TBD (usually the first weekend in June)
Sectionals: TBD (usually the second weekend in June)
Regionals: TBD (usually the fourth weekend in June)
World Series: TBD (usually the second or third week in July)

Rules:
All-Star teams will consist of at least 12 players but no more than 18 players on a team. All players must provide a copy of a birth certificate, a signed medical wavier, and a picture for the team binder. Rules for all the tournaments follow PONY rules.  There is no required play time per player, so if there are more players on a team, this potentially results in less play time, or even none.  We strongly encourage having frank conversations with the coach before agreeing to play.

Other:
LTYA tries to have at least one team in each age division (8U-12U) and coaches must volunteer to coach and are selected by the board. If there are enough players and coaches to be able to form more than one team in an age division, LTYA allows and encourages this. LTYA encourages the head coach to combine their coaching staff with other coaches from each team in the age division, but this is not guaranteed.
