Colorado Senior Softball Readies for 2021 Season
The Colorado Senior Softball Association (CSSA) Board of Directors is preparing for the 2021 senior softball season. While there is a bit of uncertainty because of the COVID-19 virus, plans are being developed for a full season as in previous years, even though the 2020 season had to be cancelled for a number of reasons. Tentative plans call for regular scheduled games to start in late April or early May.
CSSA is a nonprofit organization that organizes and manages a softball league as a means for recreation and exercise for senior citizens, 50 years of age and above. The league is managed by a Board of Directors made up of members from the Recreation Centers and from the ranks of players who volunteer their time. Teams play through the numerous recreation and senior centers throughout the front-range area, with teams participating as far south as Colorado Springs and Castle Rock, as far north as Greeley and Longmont, west to Evergreen and east to Aurora. Teams are divided into divisions based on competitive level and schedules are developed. Games are played in the regular season schedule that runs from late April through August, with end-of-season tournaments then played in late August, or early September.
The league has their regular senior teams (50 years of age and above) playing double-headers on Wednesday mornings, and their 70’s teams (70 years of age and above) playing double-headers on Monday mornings. Many players play on both a regular team and a 70’s team. In 2019, there were forty-seven regular teams and seventeen 70’s teams who participated.
