The USA softball organization requires all players to follow the "born in" birthdate chart when determining which age category a player is eligible.  A player is allowed to play in an older age  division, but they cannot play in a younger division. 

Our goal is to place players within their age division to achieve  successful development.  However, there are instances when players are moved to an older age division.  These reasons include, but are not limited to, team/position/skill/enrollment numbers.   Our goal is to keep our Association established with 100% Chatfield players so adjustments may be needed to fill out teams and/or allow players to develop to their full potential.  Each year team divisions will vary depending upon these factors.  As an organization, we have chosen not to hold try outs, so decisions regarding division of teams will be based on team needs, coaching and board assessments.

The Fireballs is a competitive sports organization aimed to develop players and teamwork.   Team building, new friendships and acceptance from teammates must occur from day one and this is expected of all players.

We stress the importance of all participants playing a role on whatever team they are placed for the ultimate goal of team success.
