Approved Bats

Multi-wall/composite bats are allowed for all players in all leagues. Only ASA/USA certified bats may be used during JSA league play and in JSA tournaments. Before you purchase a new bat, we recommend that you refer to the USA Softball guidelines and the approved listings of legal bats.

All bats must pass annual compression testing for use in JSA league play and during Rainball.


Metal cleats are not allowed to be used in JSA softball leagues, tournaments, or other events at the fields. Metal cleats ruin our jox boxes – please do not wear them!

Pitching Masks

All pitchers are required to wear a protective mask. Beginning in 2023, JSA will no longer provide pitching masks to players. Managers and pitchers – please plan accordingly.
