The ball diamonds at Deerwood Park in Evansdale may be silent now, but they are soon to be bustling with activity this spring and summer. It was a long summer last year for everyone, however the Evansdale Youth Softball Association (EYSA) was able to pull off a successful season. Now they're busy getting ready for another exciting year of offering slow-pitch softball and T-ball for area youth. 

These recreational leagues are open to all children in the Cedar Valley area and surrounding communities. Parents, it's hard to find fun, inexpensive things to keep keep your kids active in a safe outside environment. It's also a great place to develop and work on your child's skills, all while having fun on a team.

There are divisions for all age groups, for both boys and girls, "Pre-K" through 12th grade and a co-ed “Mixed League” for high-school aged kids. Registration fee is only $35 and team T-shirts are provided. Practices and games are held on either Monday & Wednesday or Tuesday & Thursday evenings. Plus, one weekend tournament for each league. All games are played at Deerwood Park in Evansdale.
