Age Groups

BRYC Girls Softball is for girls ages 5 through 18 with groups according to age and experience. The age is based on the player's age on January 1 of the current year. For example, a player who turns 11 with a February birthday is considered to be 10 years old for the whole year. The age groups/skill levels for the 2017 seasons are:

  • T-Ball/Coach Pitch: Born in years 2008 through 2011
  • Ten-and-Under (10u): Born in years 2006 and 2007
  • Pigtail (12u): Born in years 2004 and 2005
  • Ponytail (18u): Born in years 1998 through 2003

We recognize that some girls who have played before may be more advanced than those who are in their age group, and some 4 year olds are ready to play T-Ball. We allow experienced girls to move up to the next level, and 4 year olds to start, with approval of the parent and the league commissioner.

Fees

Early registration is $105 for the Coach Pitch, $115 for 10u leagues, $125 for Pigtail (12u), and $135 for Ponytail (18u) leagues. There is a $10 discount for multiple registrations per family. If you have two daughters registering, your second registration is discounted $10. If three daughters, both the second and third registration is discounted $10.

We accept late registrations (with a $10 late fee) to allow the opportunity to play softball to as many girls as possible, but only if there are openings left on teams. In the past two seasons we only had late registration openings for our Ponytail League teams. The select teams have team-specific registration that is run through the team coaches.

Player Assignments

Requests to play with friends or with a specific coach will be honored to the best of our ability with priority given to registrations received first. There are no guarantees that we can satisfy these requests in every instance. Once a team reaches 10 players for Coach Pitch and 10u teams, 12 players for Pigtail teams, and 13 for Ponytail teams, we will not be able to honor requests to join the team. Players not requesting specific coaches or teams in the will be placed on teams by the Commissioner.

Also, we may need to shut down registration early if we fill up the available teams. The number of teams that we carry is based on the number of volunteers for coaches. For this reason, we sometimes have to stop registration so that the teams do not get overfilled with players. If any parent wants to coach, that opens up opportunities for more girls to play and for friends to play together. We will work to help any new coach that enters the league, and will work to assign players with parents who also offer to help coach.

Refunds less $15 for the County user fee and BRYC administration processing fee will be granted up through April 12. For those participating in indoor clinics, we retain $25 to cover the County user fee, BRYC administration processing fee, and gym fee. Refund requests must be made in writing or by email.

Virginia Freedom of Information Act

Fairfax County Department of Community and Recreation Services (CRS) requires all athletic organizations that use County fields to submit rosters of registered players. The rosters identify the names, ages, and addresses of participants. Once CRS receives this information, it becomes a public record and as such may be released under the Virginia Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) if someone requests it. CRS can not release information about participants under 18 years old only if the parents or guardians have affirmatively requested that this information not be released. We have amended our registration forms to provide parents and guardians the opportunity to indicate that they do not allow CRS to release this information under the Virginia FOIA. If you do not want the information about your child to be released under a FOIA request, you must check the box on the application form to show this. (See the CRS letter on this topic.)
