How to Administer an MSF League

The registration and administration of a MSF softball league is very simple. Follow the below step by step process:

  • Attend a District Softball meeting and pick-up team membership materials.

    All team membership materials (i.e. softball guides, rule books, tournament schedule books, etc.) are distributed to softball league directors at the Annual District 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. Unless otherwise noted, adult softball meetings begin at 7:00pm and Junior Olympic meetings begin at 8:00pm.

    Staff members from both the district and state office will be in attendance to answer your questions and highlight the MSF softball program.

  • Complete the Team Membership Form and forward with MSF per team membership fee to MSF district or state offices by May 15.

MSF Adult Softball Team Membership

$20.00* per team on or before May 15th

$23.00* per team if postmarked after May 15th

League teams receive a $5.00 discount per team if a league representative attends a district meeting and picks up team membership materials.


If the same team is registered in multiple divisions (i.e. men’s slowpitch, men’s masters, church slow, etc.) it must pay a registration fee for each division they want to compete in.

Forward all the teams regular season rosters (yellow copy of three part roster provided by MSF) to MSF state offices by July 1.

MSF will award your league post season berths no later than June 25. The awarding form and fees must be in MSF district or state offices by July 10.

Distribute post season tournament packets (draw, rules, map, etc) and the championship roster (white copy of the three part roster) to the teams advancing from your league with the team number designated.
