What You Need To Know Regarding The Major Changes to D1 Softball Recruiting.


Without a doubt, your program has been inundated with phone calls, emails and text messages regarding the most recent recruiting rules for softball. We would also be willing to guess that you have unanswered questions, have heard conflicting information, and in some cases are not completely sure what these rules changes mean. We understand the need for information and it is our goal to provide that to you as quickly as possible.

Below you will find a document that details the most frequently asked about issues regarding the new legislation as well as the initial press release and actual bylaws passed for this legislation. This information was sent to our Division I coaches just a few moments ago. While interpretations may change, to our knowledge, and the knowledge of those we work closely with, the following information is accurate. 

Thank you for your commitment to this positive change and If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out.
