2024 USA Softball Player Registration

USA Softball of Massachusetts will continue to use Register USA Softball to register your players for the 2024 season. The Register USA Softball site is currently available for JO Youth registration. Here’s additional information for Recreational League Registrations and Travel Team Registrations.


Fast Pitch Nation – Insurance Advertisement

We would like to address an email advertisement for organizations to begin purchasing insurance via Fast Pitch Nation. USA Softball of Massachusetts feels we need to address many incorrect/false statements made by Fast pitch Nation regarding USA Softball Registration/Insurance policies.

USA Softball of Massachusetts in no way is discouraging organizations from purchasing additional insurance but we want all our members to understand they are 100% covered when teams are individually registered with USA Softball to play in any event sanctioned (or not) by USA Softball.

FPN - Just getting an additional insured certificate for the tournament host or the town where you practice should be easy. Too often it is not. Plus, additional insured certificates should be valid for the full term of your policy and not for just a single event which is the way USA Softball's insurance provider has been issuing certificates, which force the team to go back time after time to get certificates.

  • The purchasing of insurance with USA Softball is a simple process and is included when you register your players. Insurance binders can be printed out by your team administrator at any time.
  • Adding a location or additional insurer to your binder is just a few clicks of a mouse away and is always done at NO CHARGE.
  • At no time does USA Softball of Massachusetts “force” organization to “go back time after time” to get certificates of insurance to play in tournaments or any events sponsored by any other organization.

FPN - Our Team Insurance program offers industry-standard team insurance valid for ANY organization's events such as PlayFPN, USSSA, USA Softball, Triple Crown, Alliance, plus practices, scrimmages, etc.

  • USA Softball of Massachusetts continues to offer both player registration and player insurance when teams individually register their summer travel teams. Regardless of any other additional insurance you may want to purchase, you’re completely covered when you register your players with USA Softball of Massachusetts.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please feel free to contact our area commissioners Walter Babcock (, Peter Fernandes ( or our state commissioner Phil McElroy (
