Age Cut-Off

The age cut-off date is December 31, 2021. A player's League Age for the 2022 Season is the same as their actual age on Dec 31, 2021. A complete age chart is posted on the website for your convenience.

*Roanoke County allows children to play in our league if they were born before October 1, 2016, and are enrolled in kindergarten.


 
Special Requests

Play Up Requests - Requests for players to move to an older age group require a written request to the Board of Directors.

The written request must be sent to the SCSL P.O. Box 20894, Roanoke, Virginia 24018 or emailed to the League President or appropriate Division Director.

Only an official request in the form of a letter or email to the Board will be considered.

Written requests for players to move to an older age group must be received and approved by the SCSL Board of Directors before March 1.

Same Team Requests - Requests to play on the same team as a friend require a reciprocal request on the friend’s registration. Only one reciprocal request per player will be considered. Same Team Requests in “A” level play may not be honored. The Board cannot guarantee that all requests will be granted.

Coach Requests - Requests for a specific coach will not be considered.


 
Uniforms

Every player (ages 5-17) will be required to purchase uniform pants (color to be silver, gray). Grey pants can be purchased at “Play it Again Sports” on Electric Road. The league will provide shirts and socks.


 
Coaches Needed

Coaches are needed for teams at all age levels. If you are interested in coaching, please contact the appropriate Division Director as soon as possible. Division Directors can be found under "contacts" on the website. NYSCA Clinics are mandatory for all head coaches and will be offered online. 

Want to get involved with softball but feel you cannot coach? Well, there is a job for you in South County Softball League!!! The league needs all sorts of volunteers to keep the league running smoothly. If you have any questions or want to volunteer please contact Tracy McCown, 540-353-6554.


 
Background Checks

Background checks are mandated by Roanoke County for everyone and anyone that is on the field or in the dugout with an SCSL team during practices and games. SCSL is very supportive of this Roanoke County mandate and will not make any exception to the mandate. If you are interested in coaching/assistant coaching or helping an SCSL team in any way, please go to the SCSL website to register so a background check can be processed. All volunteers must register on the SCSL website even if that volunteer has an ID Badge (background check) from another sport. NO EXCEPTIONS.


Umpires Needed
Umpires are needed for all age levels. If you or know someone that is interested in umpiring, please register online through our website. You will be contacted by our Umpire Coordinator with information about the Umpire Clinics prior to the start of the season and provided rulebooks, local rules, class instruction, field instruction, and a shirt. SCSL will accept 15-year-olds but will limit their umpiring to the 8U (Mini-Mites) level.


Sponsorships
Team sponsorships are being offered again this year. This tax-deductible contribution entitles a company, a group, or an individual to an acknowledgment on our website, a plaque acknowledging support, and team T-shirts printed with the sponsor’s name. The proceeds from sponsorships will go to the league’s general account. Sponsorships will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis so make your plans early to assure that the team that you want to sponsor is available.
