2020 Winterball Season - Offline Registration is Still Possible

The PQ Rec Winterball Softball season registration is now closed online....However, we are still accepting registrations. Please contact our Player Agent, Scott Ward at stormsoftball2014@gmail.com to register.

The goal of the Rec Winterball program is to offer a place for players to keep their softball skills fresh in the off-season as well as a place for all players to further their softball knowledge.

The health and safety of our players and families is of the utmost importance during these uncertain times. PQGSA will be following all of the San Diego County COVID-19 Health and Safety Guidelines when scheduling and conducting all practices and games.

All Rec Winterball players will register via online registration. Registration is currently open to all 8U, 10U, 12U, and 14U players. Team size will be determined by the number of registrations per age division. There is no tryout process for Rec Winterball teams.

Season Schedule: The Rec Winterball season runs from mid-August until early November. (subject to change based on health guidelines). Practices are only on Friday nights, with doubleheader games on Sundays. This schedule is made to avoid conflicts with soccer, volleyball, and other Fall/Winter sports.

Practices will begin on or around August 21st. Games will hopefully start in September once proper guidance is received from the County Health Department.

Participation: Rec Winterball is open to all those that register online. Visit www.pqsoftball.org to complete the registration process.

Cost: The cost for the Rec Winterball season is $140.

Refund Policy: A full refund will be provided if PQGSA Winterball teams are unable to play games on or before October 1st. A prorated refund will be provided if the Winterball season is forced to cancel mid-season.

Coaches Needed: We are looking for people to volunteer to be a manager or coach of our Winterball Rec teams. Please contact Cate Jaravata with any questions: winterball@pqsoftball.org
