Season Timeline

Team Formations

Teams will be formed after evaluations the week of March 4th and will posted on the web site shortly after. Practices may begin the week of March 11th at the discretion of the head coach and depending on indoor facility availability.

Regular Season

The regular season start and end dates depend on the division of play. Our district will attempt to only schedule games on the days of the week listed for each division, however there may be instances where games will be played on other days of the week due to rain outs or field conflicts. Expect to play 1 to 2 games per week.

Kaneland High School Varsity Game

KYSLL is organizing attending a Kaneland High School softball varsity game on May 4th at 4:30 PM at Kaneland High School.

This is a great opportunity to support the High School team and allow the girls to see a higher level softball game in action and give them something to strive for as they may be playing on the same field one day!

Please have your player wear their jersey or other KYSLL gear to the game. If you have any questions you can contact your coach or any board member.
