THE summer season for Southern Districts Softball Association starts on Saturday, October 12.
Association secretary Fiona Williams said team registrations are open.
"We will have 50 teams for the summer competitions," Williams said.
"That should see us reach 400 player registrations.
"The summer competitions are always popular with our clubs."
Williams said competitions are held for boys and girls. Kids aged four and five play in the batter-up program; T-Ball is for under-11s, modball for under-13s. There are under-15s, youth and men's and women's open age competitions.
Clubs include Bonnyrigg Dolphins, Cabra Vale Bashers, Liverpool Catholic Club Saints, Magpies, Mounties and Wildcats.
The association's headquarters is at Jacquie Osmond Reserve, Warwick Farm. It was formed in 1965 and Yulong Oval at Moorebank was the original venue.
As the number of teams grew and more fields were needed Liverpool Council has allocated fields at Jacquie Osmond Reserve.
