About Cherokee Senior Softball Association

The Cherokee Senior Softball Association (CSSA) is a voluntary organization formed for the purpose of promoting and playing slowpitch softball for men aged 50 and older. It is a non-profit group, which relies solely on volunteers who contribute their time, talents and resources to undertake all organizational, administrative, and management functions.

A written Constitution and By-Laws govern the CSSA. It has Rules of Play, which supplements the ASA and ISA rulebooks, allowing for the adoption of specific rules for our local situation. It maintains a good working relationship with the Cherokee Recreation and Parks Authority (CRPA) to insure access to the ball fields of Hobgood Park, which are in great demand.

The CSSA has recruited local businesses to sponsor teams at an annual cost of $300.00, with trophies available for display at the League Championship Team sponsors' place of business. Currently, 24 team sponsors exist permitting player fees to be kept to a minimum, while still allowing the CSSA to run on a sound financial basis. Please support these businesses with your patronage and thanks.

Each season, the CSSA strives to put in place Leagues/Teams with competitive balance. While this effort is difficult and sometimes chaotic, experience has shown that it is essential to maintain the quality, integrity and enjoyment of the games and season. We will continue this mandate of equitable competitive balance!

Your help is needed! The CSSA has many positions in need of volunteers, ranging from Officers on the Board of Directors to chairmen and members of our several committees to Team Managers and Assistant Managers. It is not enough to just pay your fees and play ball, as leagues, teams and schedules don't just happen by magic. Currently less than 18% of our CSSA membership volunteers in any way! A few are carrying the "load" for the many, and, for the CSSA to continue to be a premier softball organization, more volunteers are needed. And while the work won't be easy, it can be very rewarding. So volunteer, --- do your part, --- and contribute to the continuing success of the CSSA!
