League Director Information
How to Administer an NSF*MSF League
The registration and administration of an NSF-MSF softball league is very simple. Follow the below step by step process: Attend a girls fastpitch softball meeting and pickup team membership materials. All team membership materials (i.e. softball guides, rule books, tournament schedule books, scorebooks, etc.) will be distributed to the softball league directors at girls fastpitch meetings held each spring. Team materials are supplied for the number of teams a sports community guarantees they will register.League directors are responsible for distribution of materials to teams participating in their sports community. League directors who cannot attend are asked to send a proxy. It is important that all leagues are represented. Again this year softball meetings will be held in each district to encourage greater participation and more efficient dissemination of team membership materials. All meetings will be held on a weeknight so that members will not be required to tie up their weekend. All girls fastpitch meetings begin at 8:00pm. Staff members from state office will be in attendance to answer your questions and highlight the NSF-MSF program.
