New Insurance Information

If all of your teams are registered with USA Softball you will get the following insurance for FREE:

  • Field Owners Liability Insurance - Coverage is in effect only when USA Softball registered teams are practicing or playing softball, and when the activities on those fields are authorized by the local USA Softball Association. The league director should request the policy from the USA Softball Commissioner.
  • Tournament Directors Liability Insurance - Coverage is in effect only when USA Softball registered teams are playing in an approved USA Softball tournament. The Tournament Director may request additional insured certificates as well as event proof of insurance. This is at no cost to the Tournament Director.

You can request these policies from USA Softball Minnesota and sent to your City Risk Manager, City Administrator, or whoever you need it to go to.

Online Rosters

Minnesota Softball has created an online roster system that the teams in your league or tournament can quickly create a roster for your review. GoSoftball.com provides the following features:

  1. Your team managers can create their own roster..
  2. Once they create a roster and it is approved they can go back into the admin section, download an official roster in PDF format, and print it.
  3. The website tracks where they have played throughout their career.
  4. The website tracks their player rating.
  5. The website tracks teams, games, and scores.
  6. Managers can edit rosters by adding or cutting players during the season. All edits must be approved by a State Commissioner.

Player ratings are by no means perfect. Players may appeal their rating annually. Based on tracking the history of the player, our player reps can view the player pages and make appeal decisions with more information than has ever been provided before. We are doing more for softball by rating players and subsequently teams off of player ratings, and placing these teams in a division where they will be competitive.
