Colorado Senior Softball Readies for 2024 Season
The Colorado Senior Softball Association (CSSA) Board of Directors is preparing for the 2024 senior softball season. Tentative plans call for regularly 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. A Board of Directors manages the league 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 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, and end-of-season tournaments are 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 the 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 2023, there were 32 regular teams and eighteen 70’s teams who participated. Men and women play on a number of the teams. Many teams are looking for new players to play in the 2024 season.
