Middle School Fastpitch Softball

2024 ASD Middle School Fastpitch Softball Season


General Information

In collaboration with the Anchorage School District (ASD) and American Legion Baseball (ALB), the Anchorage Sports Association (ASA) is proud to offer girls' fastpitch softball to all Middle School students in Anchorage for the third year!

This program is administered by ASA as an outsourced ASD sport. Student-athletes must follow all rules associated with participation in middle school activities, but the registration, fee collection, and scheduling will be done by ASA. 

Schedule & Location

Practice for the 2024 season will begin the Week of March 25.  Practices will take place after school between 3 and 4:30 PM. All practices will take place at the teams' home school.  Students can expect to practice at least 2 days/week.  Days/times will be dependent upon coach and facility availability.

For the 2024 season, we will look to play three double-headers on consecutive Saturdays, starting on May 4.   

Games will be held at the Chuck Albrecht Softball Complex (MLK Drive/Elmore).


Middle school students may participate in interscholastic and intramural athletics and a variety of academic and recreational activities. Students who would like to participate in interscholastic and intramural sports must:

  • be enrolled as a full-time student in the Anchorage School District (four or more classes) at a middle school.
  • have a current sports physical on file with the school; this exam is good for eighteen (18) months from date of issue

In order to practice or play in a game, a student must be in attendance at school a minimum of one-half day, except for extenuating circumstances (such as a school field trip) approved by an administrator.

Additionally, when registering to participate in middle school softball please be prepared to submit the following forms to your school:

  • Health Exam form signed by doctor, student and parent/guardian. Health exams are good for 18 months and must be current through the season of the sport.

These forms will need to be submitted directly to your school admin.  Players must have the forms on-file with their school before they can begin play.

Anchorage Sports will follow all rules and guidelines set forth by ASD in the Middle School Activities Handbook unless explicitly stated otherwise.



A $110 activity fee per registered athlete is required unless: 

  • A student applies for and receives a fee waiver based on hardship.
  • Fee waiver request can be submitted at the time of registration and funds will be released as available.

Online payment

  • Online payment of fees will be required with registration.
  • Fee Waiver applicants will not owe the fee at registration pending the status of their application.
