New Tournament Guidlines:  We are limited to teams that are based in the 16 counties within the Region or contiguous to it. (within the Capital Region are the Counties of: Albany, Columbia, Greene, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Warren, and Washington.  Contiguous to the Capital Region are the Counties of Delaware, Dutchess, Essex, Fulton, Hamilton, Montgomery, Schoharie, and Ulster).  This means facilities hosting play within the Region cannot host a team that hails from outside the 16 counties.


Covid-19 Reimbursement Policy:  
Please be advised, Miss Scotties Softball has revised our refund policy for the 2020 summer season because of Covid-19.  Full refunds will be given as long as I (Registration Director) am notified 15 or more days in advance of the start of the tournament, or if the tournament is cancelled because of new Covid-19 issues that arise leading up to the start of the tournament, so long as the league has not incurred debt it cannot recoup.

Miss Scotties Tournaments are played at beautiful Luther Forest Athletic Fields in Malta, NY off of exit 12 of I87 near Saratoga Springs, NY.  We have full concessions, bathrooms, 4 beautiful manicured fields.  The complex is close to downtown Saratoga Springs, Lake George and Six Flags.  Hotels, shopping and restaurants are within two miles of the park.  



Miss Scotties Softball Covid-19 Tournament Regulations 2020


Miss Scotties Softball is proud to host 2020 summer tournaments but has put the following guidelines together to protect all participants, spectators and staff.  It is important that everyone follow the guidelines below.  

Each team’s head coach will be provided with a copy in the weeks prior to the event. Each head coach will be required to make certain that all of their coaches, players, parents and spectators will also be provided with a copy of these Rules and Guidelines.  Anyone who cannot abide by these rules and regulations will be asked to leave the park for the remainder of the tournament. Coaches are responsible for the compliance of all of their team members, parents and spectators. Any team that does not abide by these rules and guidelines will be subject to a game forfeit and/or removal from the league or tournament, without any refund. As we move forward in these unprecedented times, it is very likely that these rules and guidelines will be revised and updated. All such updates will be posted on our website, and they will be distributed to each coach.  We can not stress enough how important it is that everyone cooperate with us and abide by these new procedures.
