Spring Branch - Memorial Sports Association

SBMSA Softball provides a fun and competitive softball program for girls ages 5 through 15. In association with the Amatuer Softball Association, SBMSA Softball provides recreational and competitive opportunities for girls in fast pitch softball. Whether your player views softball as a new sport to learn, as a way to have fun with friends, or as a path to the Olympics, the SBMSA youth program has something for them. Foremost, the goal of the SBMSA softball program is to help aspiring young softball athletes learn a sport they can enjoy for a lifetime in a positive, safe, and supportive environment.

We play on three lighted softball fields, centrally located on the campus of the Spring Branch Elementary School, 1700 Campbell Road and two fields at Guthrie, 10660 Hammerly Blvd.

6U Division - Our five and six year olds play 6U which includes a combination of "coach-pitch" and t-ball. There are no strike outs in 6U to encourage players to hit a pitched ball. This is the girls introduction to the game and we would like for it to be fun and instructional for all. All teams are formed by school or geographic area. Practices are once or twice a week and usually 1 game per week.

8U Division - Our seven and eight year olds play 8U which is "coach-pitch". We would like to see the girls advance to a point where they can consistently hit, throw and catch as well as learn the basic concepts fo the game. All teams are formed by school or geographic area. Practices are usually twice a week, and there is usually one game per week, though sometimes one practice is exchanged for a second game.

10U Division - The 10U program is made up of nine and ten year old girls. In 10U, "kid pitch" is combined with "coach-pitch". We encourage girls to learn to pitch as well as how to hit off of "kid pitching". At 10U, girls will try-out and be drafted to teams by our coaches.

12U Division - The 12U program is made up of eleven and twelve year old girls. 12U goes by ASA rules and teams are drafted after girls try-out.

14U Division - Our older girls consisting of 13, 14 and 15 year olds are assigned to 14U teams and generally coop with area softball and sports associations. There will be some travel involved as games will be played around the central and West Houston area.

At the end of the year, all-teams participate in play-offs to crown our league champion. This is always a fun and exciting time for both the girls and the parents.

Additionally, a number of Sports Association all-star tournament teams are formed under the name "Houston Heat" and participate in invitational, regional and Amateur Softball Association national tournaments.

An information flyers regarding registration will be handed out to all SBISD elementary school students when they come back to school from the Christmas holidays. At the same time this web site will be available for registration on-line.
