The City of Florence Recreation Department, in association with the Florence Youth Softball Association Volunteer Board, sponsors a girls youth softball program in the Florence community. The league is composed of five (5) age group divisions open to youths, age 5 to 18. The divisions are: Division 1 - 5 to 6 year olds; Division 2 - 7 to 8 year olds; Division 3 - 9 to 10 year olds; Division 4 - 11 to 12 year olds; Division 5 - 13 to 14 year olds; and Division 6 - 15 to 18 year olds. All ages are determined as of December 31 of the previous year for the spring league and December 31 of the current year for the fall league. League participation is dependent upon the participant's location of residence because of zoning requirements.
Registration for the spring league starts in February of each year. Youth players participate in an evaluation to determine placement on a team. Special requests for teams, teammates, or coaches cannot be guaranteed. Play usually begins in March and lasts through May, followed by postseason tournaments. Teams typically play two games per week and practices an additional two days per week. Most games and practices are held at the Freedom Florence Recreational Complex. Fall league registration starts in August, with league games being played in September and October. The registration fee is $40.
