Welcome to St. Anthony Softball!

The St. Anthony Booster Softball Association (SABSA) offers Introductory and Fastpitch Softball for players (age 5 - 15*) who reside in St. Anthony or attend school in the St. Anthony-New Brighton School District.

Our purpose is to provide girls within our service area a recreational and competitive environment in which they can learn and develop the fundamental skills of Softball, and where they can develop self-discipline, responsibility, good sportsmanship, and leadership.

The softball programs provide girls opportunities at various age/skill levels of competition to help foster Players' success and growth.

  • Girls age 5 and younger should generally consider T-Ball.  Girls age 5 who have completed a year of T-Ball should consider Introductory (Intro) Softball.
  • Introductory (Intro) Softball / "6U" is geared for girls ages 6, but girls as young as 5 (with advanced skills for their age) have been successful in Intro Softball. 
  • "8U" Softball is geared toward girls age 7-8.  Girls age 7 with advanced skills, or who have successfully completed Intro Softball should play 8U Softball. 
  • Girls age 8 with advanced skills should consider 10U Fastpitch Softball.  Girls age 9 and above play Fastpitch Softball.

Please click on the Intro Softball, 8U Softball, and Fastpitch Softball tabs to the left for information about the different levels of Softball play offered (including age-related* information; please note that Softball uses a player's age as of Dec. 31, prior year).



Our Evaluations/Tryouts are held each Spring, usually in early March.  These Evals/Tryouts are a chance for Players to demonstrate ability - at Pitching, and in General Skills.  Attendance at these is highly encouraged for all Players except Intro Players.  Evaluations help 8U Players get used to the process, and help us form teams and select team level of play (A/B/C) for Fastpitch Teams. 

Players are asked to make every effort to attend General Evaluations. 

Players who desire a chance to Pitch should demonstrate their ability at the Pitching Evaluations.

  • 2017 - Conference 3rd Place
