The Sioux Empire Fastpitch Softball Association has moved!
SEFSA has closed their indoor training facility, The Champions Training Center, and has moved into an office space with storage. Effective November 1, 2018, our new address is 605 S. Watson Avenue, Suite 100, Sioux Falls, SD 57106.
Our phone number is 605-553-4513 and our email address is email@example.com.
SEFSA requires that every person who intends to work directly with our players complete a background check PRIOR to league practices or games. All coaches, assistant coaches, team managers, and book keepers must submit a background check. A good "rule of thumb" is if you plan on being in the dugout with the team, we need a background check.
USA National Softball has changed its protocol to ensure the protection and safety of our youth. Background checks are now completed and paid for on-line through a provider sanctioned by USA Softball. The cost is $10 per back ground check - SEFSA does not cover this charge.
All SEFSA coaches are encouraged to complete the ACE certification but coaches 10U through the Women's division are highly encouraged to complete the on-line ACE training. The cost is $25 for "first time users" and $20 for all others. The ACE certification includes a background check. ACE certification has a "Safe Sport" component that you have to complete so please allow a few hours to complete this training. SEFSA does not cover the cost of the ACE certification.
Please use the link below to set up your USA account which will allow you to complete your ACE certification and/or complete the mandatory background check. Have your credit/debit handy as you will need to pay online to complete the process. After you have completed the ACE certification or background check, you must print off the receipt/confirmation page and bring it to the coaches meeting in April or email it to Sefsareg@gmail.com. You will not be allowed to have contact with your team/players until this documentation is received.
Please review the SEFSA "Team Classification Rules" to learn how to accurately classifying your team as A, B, or Rec division. It is important that each coach register his/her team in the most appropriate division so players can get the best experience possible. This will help make our teams and league stronger if everyone has a positive and fun season.Please review the SEFSA "Team Classification Rules" to learn how to accurately classifying your team as A, B, or Recreation division.
