As a condition of using the softball fields located at Portage High School, ALL PARTICIPANTS (including players, coaches, umpires, visiting coaches, and visiting players) MUST complete this waiver.
This waiver will not be submitted digitally. It must be printed, signed, and turned into your head coach. You will NOT be allowed on any PCSD fields, dugouts, batting cages, etc. without this being turned in to your head coach.
For opposing teams, all players and coaches must complete this waiver and turn them in to the head coach of the PYS team you are playing.
For umpires, turn this in to the PYS head coach of your first game. You will not need to submit one for each game.
All athletes that requested a refund and/or registration credit through the COVID-19 Survey prior to June 14, 2020 have now had their refund and/or registration credit issued. Those requesting refunds or registration credits on or after June 14, 2020 will have their requests processed at a later time.
Registration credits are valid for the 2021 summer season. If you selected to recevie a registration credit, you should have received an email with the promo code and how much it is worth. We recommend you save that email or write down your promo code for your reference. We also have these on file so you can contact us prior to registering next year if you forget or lose your promo code. Just remember to use your promo code instead of paying next year! (And be sure to register early so you don't have to pay the late registration fee).
If you requested a refund (or paid a late fee and requested a registration credit), your refund has been issued minus credit card processing fees. It can take 5-10+ days to appear on your statement. Contact your bank or credit card company if you don't see the refund in two weeks. You can also contact us, but we are limited in what we can do since we already issued the refund and it is now being processed by your credit/debit card company.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
We will have a 2020 summer softball season!
Soon you will receive an email from head coaches in which you will find more details about practices (beginning as early as this week). In addition, there will be more guidance as to the policies and procedures we will need all parents and players to agree to in order to safety conduct our season. We look forward to seeing you all on the field soon!
Please remember that many things are not finalized at this point and things may change as the season progresses.
As a reminder, any athletes or volunteers that have not submitted the COVID-19 Survey and COVID-19 Supplemental Waiver are not allowed to participate. Practices are entirely optional at this point. If you do not feel comfortable attending, just let your coach know.
The Board of Directors had a meeting on May 27, 2020 and they discussed a variety of topics regarding the upcoming summer season. Before making final decisions, they would like the feedback of all of our registered players (& parents) and volunteers. All registered players and volunteers are required to complete our short COVID-19 survey. Please complete this survey no later than Friday, June 5, 2020.
By completing this survey, you will be able to:
Each athlete and volunteer should complete their own survey. Different questions are asked of athletes and volunteers. Families with multiple athletes should also complete a separate survey for each athlete as questions do vary based on each athlete's league.
Additional information will be available in the survey, but PDF versions are available for review if you need to access them after you submit the survey.
NOTE: You will be unable to save and resume your survey at a later time like you can do during registration. If your athlete plans to participate this upcoming summer season, they will need to be with you when you complete the survey so they can sign the COVID-19 Supplemental Waiver. If your athlete will not be participating or if you are a volunteer, you will not need an athlete signature and can complete the survey on your own.
All athlete registrations and volunteer applications submitted before 5/28/2020 at 4:00 PM are able to complete a waiver. Registrations and volunteer applications submitted after that will be periodically added and given access to the survey.
You can complete our COVID-19 Survey below. If you have trouble completing it on our website, you can complete it here instead.
High School Season Canceled
The Badger Conference has elected not to participate in the extended spring softball season this summer. As a result, there will be no official high school season for 2020. All high school aged players are encouraged to register with Portage Youth Softball if they wish to play Portage softball this summer.
Registration has been extended for the 16/18U League to allow high school players to still register following the news of the high school season cancellation. The regular registration deadline has been extended to Sunday, May 31, 2020 at 11:59 PM. The late registration deadline has been extended to Sunday, June 14, 2020 at 11:59 PM. (All deadlines are subject to change). Please register as soon as possible if you wish to play this summer.
Online payment has temporarily been suspended for all new registrations. New registrations will be contacted to pay at a later time once we are confident in having a summer season and know more details about the season. Any interested players need to register online without paying at this time.
High school players that are eligible for the 14U League based on their age will need to contact us prior to registering. The online registration form will give an error to any Rookie, 10U, 12U, or 14U players that try to register. Any players at any age level that have not yet registered but are interested in playing this summer should contact us as soon as possible.
Volunteer applications are still being accepted for all leagues. No final decisions have been made on coaches. If you are interested in volunteering this upcoming season, fill out a volunteer application as soon as possible.
You can access the registration portion of our website here.
Since we normally are having regular practices in May but are unable to due to COVID-19, we have been posting some online training drills that we want all of our players to work on at-home. These drills focus on a variety of topics including fielding, hitting, bunting, pitching, catching, and more!
Most of these drills require minimal space and equipment and do not take long to complete. We encourage all of our players to attempt as many of these drills as possible so they can progress more quickly once the season begins while staying active during this time at home.
Several new drills are added each week! Check them all out on our Training Blog.
