Fairfax Youth Sports Softball

Fairfax Little League and Pony League Softball

The Fairfax Girls Little League (3rd– 5th grade) and Pony League (6th– 8thgrade) teams belong to the Iowa Valley Softball League (the player’s grade is determined by the grade they are in at the beginning of the season, IE: in 4th grade in May 2024, would be considered a 4th grader for the 2024 season). The league is made up of teams from the surrounding communities of Atkins, Blairstown, Fairfax, Keystone, Newhall, Norway and Van Horne. Fairfax has been a member of the league since 2008.

The Fairfax LL and PL teams play their home games at the Fairfax Regional Sports and Park Complex (the Complex) at 625 Linn St in Fairfax and play away games at the individual town’s sites. Practice for these teams begins in early April, weather permitting. The season kicks off with a week of “pre-season” games May 13 – 17, 2024. The actual game day/ time is TBD. The regular season starts on Tuesday, May 21, 2024, and concludes with a post-season tournament beginning Sunday, June 23, 2024 and goes through Thursday, June 27, 2024. The location and game day/ time are TBD. There is a league All-Star game that will be held in Blairstown after the post-season tournament. More information on the All-Star game will be announced at a later date. Practices and games are scheduled for Tuesdays and Fridays. Practice times are scheduled by the coaches and are usually after work during the week, but can include weekends depending on schedules. There will be a league coaches meeting at Newhall City Hall, 11 2nd Ave on April 15 at 6:00 PM.

There is a $60.00 registration fee for all participants.

FYS believes every child should have the opportunity to play youth sports and offers a scholarship program for families if the registration fee poses a hardship.

High School Rec Softball

In 2022 Fairfax Youth Sports established a high school rec softball team. The FYS recognizes the need for this team for girls in the 9th – 12th grades who are not playing high school softball. We welcome all girls in that grade bracket to join. In 2022 with the absence of a true league, the girls competed in local tournaments during the year to hone their skills. The Iowa Valley Softball League is committed to actively recruiting a team(s) for 2024. The coaches and the Fairfax Parks & Rec Department continue to seek more involvement in this worthwhile league from around the area.

The registration fee is $60.00 for all players.

Tournament Softball

FYS offers a tournament softball program for girls in the 10U age through J/V age brackets. This league is for girls who want additional time with the coaches, practice time, and game time. The players try out for positions on the teams and based on ability and age may be selected to a team. Since there is a tryout, not all girls will make the team. Teams practice starting in August twice per week and play in three or four tournaments in the fall and two or three tournaments in the spring. Girls playing on the tournament softball are strongly encouraged to play on one of Fairfax’s rec teams (Little League, Pony League, or High School).

There is a $150.00 registration fee for all participants.
