Player registration is $75 this year, but you don't have to sell any raffle tickets to cover umpires and scorekeepers. There is no charge on the head coach registration. You can register online anytime or in-person at Academy from 10am-2pm on 1/21/23 or at the Texarkana Arkansas Recreation Center, 1 Legion Drive, Texarkana, AR from 10am-2pm on 2/18/23. Current registration period ends 2/19/23

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 David Lee at 903-278-0697 if any questions regarding registration and be sure to follow Texarkana Youth Softball Association of Facebook for season updates.
