    • CSSA 2020 Season Cancelled:

    • After weeks/months of evaluating the situation, the CSSA Board of Directors have decided to officially cancel the CSSA 2020 senior softball season.  This decision was based on many factors and considerations- the direct aspects of the Coronavirus (risk and safety), all the related issues with the 20 Recreation Districts where we normally play our CSSA games and other matters as well.  There are several CSSA matters that will need to be addressed (balls distributed at the March 6th managers meeting, Fall Managers Meeting, Board election, etc.), and managers and Rec Center Reps will be contacted at the appropriate time regarding these.

    • Also, some teams have been practicing and in fact playing some games at various locations.  Any teams who want to do that should arrange things with Rec Centers/Districts and other teams as appropriate but should understand that those activities are not sponsored or sanctioned by CSSA.  Those activities are between the teams and the Rec Center/District and teams should follow any special rules or requirements, and costs required by them.
