COVID-19 Update: Summer season canceled as of 6/3/2020

The Northfield Fastpitch Softball Association Board has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 summer travel season. The decision to do such was based on three main factors:

  1. Northfield teams will not have access to Rock Fields until July per the school district.
  2. With current events being as they are, the Minnesota Department of Health has been slow to provide clear guidance and a timeline regarding game and tournament play creating uncertainty that makes planning difficult at best.
  3. The board has concerns that the Minnesota Softball plan to return to play does not adequately address safety concerns expressed by our families on a recent survey. The NFSA’s top priority continues to be the health and safety of our players, coaches, umpires and families.

Refund Information

The NFSA will refund registration less a $40 cancellation fee. The fee covers the cost of the jersey and processing fees. Refunds amounts are as follows: $285 for 14U and 12U; $235 for 10U; and $185 for 8U.

The NFSA will cover other pre-season costs that have already been incurred. Players will still receive their jersey. Please give the NFSA several weeks to process refunds and figure out shirt delivery. Thank you in advance for your patience as we work through this process.

Future plans

The NFSA plans to hold some fun, skill development and modified competitive in-house programming in July once we can get back on Rock Fields. Please watch your email for more information to come out soon.

In the meantime, there are many things you can do as parents to keep your children active, and to keep them building their skills. There is a plethora of online tools, drills, videos and programs, many that are free, that provide solo instruction as well as ways you as a parent can assist. There are some resources available on the Coaches and Clinic webpage.

Please direct any questions or concerns to admin@northfieldfastpitch.org.

VOLUNTEER FEE

Parents will need to submit a check for the $150 Volunteer Fee, per player, at the first coach’s meeting. Families must complete 6 volunteer hours, per player. Once the 6 hours are completed, the check will be destroyed. If a family chooses not to complete the 6 hours, the check will be cashed by July 31st. Volunteer hours can be completed by family members 18 years of age and older.  Players are welcome to help with concession stand shift but may not work alone.

 

EQUIPMENT

Custom jerseys will be provided for players to keep at the end of the season. Participants need to provide socks, black pants, helmet with chin strap/cage, and glove.  Fielding masks are not required, but are highly recommended for safety.

TOURNAMENTS

The NFSA will provide funding for up to two tournaments per team. The Tri County State Qualifier Tournament and the State Tournament are also included in the registration fee. 

PLAYING TIME

  • Equal playing time in not guaranteed. Over the course of the regular season, each player will get a fair and ample amount of playing time. Coaches have the authority to limit playing time if a player has absences from games and/or practice. 
  • If a player is going to miss any game or practice, the player or a family member must notify the coach in advance. Failure to do so may result in a loss of playing time.
  • The State Qualifier and State Tournaments follow strict ASA rules which restrict substitutions on the line-up card. These rules may result in reduced playing time for some players as the coaches use their best judgement to field the most competitive team.

PAYMENT OPTION

PAY IN FULL Submit total player fees online today upon conclusion of this online registration session via Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or checking account.

PAYMENT PLAN:  Fees are divided into 2 equal installments with the first half to be collected online today upon conclusion of this registration session via Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or checking account. The remaining balance will be automatically debited from the SAME ACCOUNT on March 15, 2020.
