The deadline is essential, especially this year. With the continuing COVID-19 issues a number of players may or may not decide to play this year. The number of players registering will allow the BSS Board Of Directors to plan accordingly.

There will be opportunities to register at GT Bray Park (November 15th, 18th, 22nd, & 29th) after games are completed. Registration at GT Bray will not be available on Thanksgiving Day (November 25th).

The registration form will ask for your name, email, December Phone Number, Florida Arrival Date and Departure Date. (The Arrival & Departure Dates will utilize a pop-up calendar.) Important: The Name provided at Registration will be used for the Magnetic Board Name Tags, email correspondence, and other Softball Reporting. (I.E. If you want to be known as Mike don’t sign up as Michael). Whatever name you provide at registration should be less than 25 characters (including spaces).

The form will ask for the positions you CAN play. Please be flexible. Also be realistic concerning what league (Competitive or Recreational) you sign up for.

If you require a runner please check the appropriate box requesting a runner. Remember players under 80 will be requested to provide a medical reason for utilizing a runner. On the Tuesday And Thursday competitive leagues batters WILL be required to run to first base.
