The youth fastpitch program will be divided into these classifications:
- A player’s age on January 1st of that calendar year determines the age classification in which the player is eligible to participate.
- The recreation/league fastpitch program is designed for girls age 18 & under.
- AAYS will only allow female athletes to play girls' fast-pitch softball. A female that was established at birth and has the
original birth certificate will be allowed to register and sanction under AAYS. AAYS has adopted the state rulings
from each of the states in which AAYS has teams playing in the events. Alabama HB391, Florida SB1028, Louisiana
SB44, Mississippi SB2536.
The fastpitch sanction runs from September 1 until August 31. Any player can play in a higher classification but not in a lower classification.
