We offer one time, stand-alone games that carry no multi-game commitments. Players may choose to play in one game or many as there are no permanent teams and OPTIONAL is not a league with standings. Participation is flexible allowing more people to participate, one game at a time.
OPTIONAL membership is free. Our Re-entry to Softball Clinics are free. There are no league membership fees. Players only pay when they want to play. OPTIONAL rents fields, pays umpires, provides balls and equipment, etc. Fees help pay expenses.
If you haven’t played softball in a while, we recommend that you attend a re-entry clinic before you sign up to play in games. All clinic attendees receive personal attention and a plan for re-involvement. On the other hand, if you are physically fit and game ready, go ahead and sign up to play in some OPTIONAL games.
