Sunday Alliance

So, what is Sunday Alliance? 

Sunday Alliance is a program designed to play a more competitive style of softball for girls that desire, but do not want to fully commit to a travel team.  This is a step between Rec League and Travel softball, played on Sunday afternoons between April and June.   This program will be an additional "season" of games.   Approximately 10-12 games (5-6 Sundays) depending on weather and team interest.   This program also keeps talent within the CYL and is a more affordable option compared to full on travel softball.

Girls must be a registered player within Cascade Youth League to qualify for a Sunday Alliance team.  Players must be playing spring, and/or registered to play fall softball.  

Each player will go through evaluations in Amo on the date/time listed below.  A team must have a minimum of 10 players to form a team for the alliance softball season.  Coaches may reach out to other recreational programs with Softball Director Approval to fill roster spots, after exhausting all options to include CYL players.  Tryouts will either fill a full team, or open spots needed for an established team on a yearly basis.   

Practices for teams formed can begin after the academic fall break.   A team can practice at maximum twice a week while the weather is suitable, and pending field availability.   Starting in December each team will have a 2-hour slot to practice within the Cadet Center.   This will be based on availability and age division.   Some weeks it will just not be possible due to multiple sports using the Cadet Center.

Head coaches will be determined by the Softball Director.   Assistant coaches will be recommended by the head coach and chosen based on experience within CYL Softball.  A maximum of 3 coaches (1-HC, 2 Assistants) with 8U, and 2 coaches (1-HC, 1 Assistant) with 10U and 12U Divisions.   Coaches will be chosen based on interest and/or experience.  Growth of ALL players should be the top priority of coaches applying for these positions.

Tryouts for players will be graded by head coaches and evaluators within our recreational program.  Tryouts will be graded similar to how our recreational softball spring evaluations are graded.   Each player will be graded on Batting, Fielding, Throwing, and Running.  It is encouraged for any player who would like to be apart of this program to come prepared and enthusiastic.  

Cascade will partner with Sunday Alliance, a program in the Indianapolis area that has an approximate group of 80 teams throughout many different age groups.  Teams are rec alliance teams (All Star) and/or C rated travel teams.   All games will be played throughout other communities in Central Indiana.  The Sunday Alliance program schedules games on a per week basis and attempts to schedule games no more than an hour drive away from Amo.  Double-header games are played on Sundays and scheduled in late February each season.   Sunday play will start at Noon, and the final game start will be 3PM most weekends *.  

Tournaments entered with these teams will be determined by the coaches and Softball Director approval.  Some tournaments could be overnight stays, or over an hour drive from Amo.

Parent Information

A commitment to Sunday afternoons is important to this program because of travel and game times.  We ask that players are fully committed to the team while “in season”. If you feel that you cannot commit to this, then please do not attend tryouts this season. There are only a limited number of spots available for each age group.  

Payment to play is due before each team’s official first practice.   There will be no refunds at any point.   Uniforms/Gear will be ordered in late November or early December.   

*Sunday times for games are subject to change based on the amount of teams and/or changes to program

** Price can vary from year to year.   Pricing for 2024 season will be $200.
