Registration Season Change
IFA-VTD Softball is changing the registration season to September 1st as of 9/1/14.
This registration date will define your team’s age classification as of that date to
align with championship play. The majority of youth softball is making this change
for the 2015 championship season, so your age classification will be the same in
most other softball organizations.
Registration is open now and all registrations since August 1st, 2014 will be
honored for the 2015 championship season. In future years, registration will be
from Sept. 1st through Aug. 31st of the championship season year and will open
for that season by August 1st.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Does this mean that I need to register now since my registration was through Dec. 31st?
No, you do not have to, however; your points will only follow your age appropriate division of the 2015 championship season with age appropriate players “only”.
Examples would be: If you are playing 12U in the fall and must play 14U in the spring,
your points will not transfer with your new team registration or if your 12U team plays in
the fall with players that will be 14U age appropriate in the spring, your points
will not carry forward with the 12U team. With this said, you must register for the
2015 season now to hold all of your fall points through nationals. Only teams
whose entire roster is age eligible for the next year will have their points
Why change the dates?
These dates are in line with the conclusion of the championship season. Teams
commonly re-align to play for the next season after the end of nationals.
How does this affect insurance?
New policies purchased will follow the same calendar as registrations. Previously
purchased policies will remain in effect until Dec. 31st of 2014. Policies purchased
since August 1st, 2014 are for the 2015 season and will be in effect until Aug 31st of 2015.
Does this affect the age classification of my players?
No. This does not change the age eligibility of your players. Your athlete’s age
eligibility will still be determined on Jan 1st of the current national championship season.

IFA-VTD allows any team insurance to participate in our events……If your team is utilizing individual cards…..make sure the card matches her birth certificate with pertinent information or the card will have to be corrected to match in order to participate for liability reasons. This is also for the protection of the player…..for example a card with the wrong birth date would allow their insurance to deny coverage….Please check your individual cards for any errors before any championship event!
