You know what goes with Back to School? FALL BALL!

To register, go to our website at www.southcolonieball.org/registration and click on the 'Register' button!

From a competitive standpoint, Fall Ball is in between our recreation games and Spring/Summer travel league games. Some stricter rules are enforced, but the emphasis on competition does not reach that of travel games and more closely resembles our recreation games. Our Fall Softball teams will again play within divisions of the Hudson Mohawk (HM) District 7 Girls Softball Traveling League, and our Fall Baseball teams will once again play within divisions of the Eastern States Baseball League (ESBL).

If you have any questions about Softball, please contact Bryan Kelly at bryankelly@southcolonieball.org . For any Baseball questions, please contact Matt Conley at mattconley@southcolonieball.org .
