Welcome to Gates Athletic Association



Parents of 15u and 18u:
We need girls so that we can have teams! Please go onto the website and register your players!
I will be providing the league with rosters on May 27th! Please sign up ASAP!
Parents of ALL age groups:
I have been in contact with CYSA, we are planning the season to start at some point (no specific date given yet) but it will go through the summer.
We do understand that this could potentially interfere with other sports that start in the summer but we are trying to do everything we can!
Please keep in mind that we are not giving refunds at this time. If the league cancels our season then that process will start. Until then NO REFUNDS!
Thank you all for being patient with me and CYSA! We want some normal to the girls!
If you need anything, please feel free to contact me!
Hope everyone is safe and healthy!

Gates Athletic Association Softball Information

Chesterfield Youth Softball Association, Inc. (CYSA) is one of the largest youth softball organizations in the state of Virginia. More than 1,300 girls participated in leagues beginning at age 5 and continuing until age 18.

Program Information: Pre-season practice begins around the beginning of March. Games begin near the middle of April for ages 5-14 and around the middle May for ages 15-18. Games are played on week nights at the county parks. Ages 5-12 generally play two (2) games per week while ages 13-19 are scheduled for three (3) games per week.

Practice: Each team is allocated weekly practice time subject to availability. During the preseason (month of April), the teams practice at Gates Elementary, or other nearby baseball fields with two (2) practices per week being typical. Practice during the season is at the discretion of the coaches.

Coach and Kid Pitch : The "8 and Under" league is a combination of Coach Pitch
and Player Pitch. All other leagues are exclusively player pitch.

Free Agent Policy: Children who play for an association other than the one affiliated with the elementary school boundary in which they live are considered free agents and must be "released" by their home association in order to play elsewhere. Children who live within the Gates Elementary School attendance boundaries will only be released to play for another association if we are unable to place them on a team. Should this occur, players who request to play for another association will be released according to the request date.

Black pants and gold belt recommended for ages 10U and up, purchased independently.

All players will need to provide own batting helmet with face mask and socks (color of socks to be determined by Coach).
