Welcome to Davis Youth Softball
DYSA is a NorCal
affiliated recreational fastpitch softball league for youths age 4 1/2 to
16. DYSA enjoys the participation of nearly 300 girls at all skill levels with a Spring season, an All-Star season in early summer, and a Fall season. Located in Davis, CA, we are a recreational league that is run
by enthusiastic volunteers, promoting DYSA values...
All DYSA values are intended to promote the well-being and development of our players – physically and mentally.
Our program's goal is for kids to play softball so we mandate that during the Spring Season every player on every team must play at least 50 percent of every game when possible. It's no fun to spend the game on the bench...and that's no way to learn softball!
For the Spring Season we form new teams that are as evenly balanced as possible because it's more fun and a better learning experience when teams of similar ability play. It allows for each player to gain the experience of a wide variety of teammates of different skill levels.
Our program is open to all youths between 4 1/2 and 16 years of age who want to register and play softball. Interest and enthusiasm are the only criteria for playing. There are no elimination try-outs and nobody gets cut.
Encouragement of player effort provides for greater enjoyment for the players and leads to better-skilled and better-motivated players. A coach can be one of the most influential people in a child's life, so DYSA requires coaches to create a positive experience for every girl.
We strive to create a positive environment based on mutual respect rather than a win-at-all-costs attitude, and our program is designed to instill good sportsmanship in every facet of DYSA.
We believe that all players should be able to develop their softball skills and knowledge to the best of their abilities, both individually and as members of a team, in order to maximize their enjoyment of the game.
