Melrose Youth Softball (MYS) is dedicated to teaching softball while emphasizing teamwork, sportsmanship, and self-respect. We support the Melrose, Mass. community by providing:
Leagues for ages from pre-kindergarten (t-ball) through high school (15U)
Teams for spring, summer, and fall
Skills clinics for multiple age groups
Opportunities for girls and adults to coach, umpire, and support player development
MYS emphasizes sportsmanship and respect for teammates, opponents, umpires and coaches. The league, coaches and other volunteers work together to advance players’ skills and to foster good sportsmanship from all involved.
MYS leagues are based on age, per USA Softball rules. The age qualification is based on the player’s age on January 1, 2022. For example, a player who is 10 on January 1, 2022 will play in the 10U league even if she turns 11 later in the 2022 calendar year.
Exception: T-ball is for kindergarten and pre-k. 8U is for first grade/elementary school. Age ranges by league:
· T-ball: born between 1/1/15 - 12/31/17 (kindergarten/pre k)
· 8U: born between 1/1/13 - 12/31/15 (grade school)
· 10U: born between 1/1/11 - 12/31/12
· 12U: born between 1/1/09 - 12/31/10
· 15U: born between 1/1/06 - 12/31/08
