FYI on how teams are assembled. Some coaches come to the league with a complete team. Some coaches come to the league with half a team and need TYSA to add a couple of players. The rest of the teams are made up of the remaining players. We do our best to group those players according to school district.

TYSA cant complete the rosters until registration closes. We cant complete the teams until we have enough coaches and we cant complete the schedule until ALL teams are sanctioned by USA Softball. 

Call or text Charlotte Gordon at 903-701-0664 if any questions regarding registration and be sure to follow Texarkana Youth Softball Association of Facebook for season updates.
