FMYSA Recreational Softball welcomes girls to learn and develop softball skills through its league partnership with DFW Mid Cities Interlock. This is a collection of teams from leagues in Coppell, Southlake, Grapevine, Roanoke, and other cities. Registration for spring and fall seasons takes place during December/January and July/August respectively. Each season runs over an 8-week span with a reasonable effort to accommodate 10 games and an end-of-season tournament. Roster sizes vary from as few as 6 in 6U to as many as 13 in each of the other age groups; contingent upon the number of girls registered. Age group directors can provide specific information about each division and help parents determine which level of play is best suited for their child. We encourage you to reach out with any questions and join us for a fun season of player development!
*Age eligibility is determined by a player's age as of January 1. For example, if a player is 8 on January 1 but will turn 9 during the year, she is still eligible to play 8U for the entire year (spring and fall season).
