In the Fall, most regular season games are played on Saturdays, with an occasional Sunday afternoon game. In the Spring, each team will have one or two weekday games, and one weekend game (usually on Saturday). Games are played at Oak Hill, but because of the limited number of teams in softball, games are scheduled with other leagues in the Austin area (from San Marcos to Georgetown) and are played at the other leagues’ fields too. Weekend travel to other leagues is anticipated and should be expected. We will do our best to minimize travel and create a balanced schedule. In addition, some double header games may be played.
Round Robin and/or tournament weekends during the season are also possible where teams may play multiple games or on Saturday and Sunday during those weekends. The regular season will conclude with a weeklong end of season tournament between Oak Hill teams.
