Rules of Play
League Play Rules
The North York Women's Softball League rules of play are in alignment with those set forth by Softball Canada and the Provincial Women's Softball Association (PWSA). From time to time we make minor revisions to the rules to accommodate the league memberships desire to balance fair play and competition. Those modifications occur at the Annual General Meetign each January for the coming season. Changes and updates are listed below. All rules from previous years apply unless changed in future years.

Motion: Shannon Post. Seconded by Dan Hale. Passed unanimously
- Implement rule for 1:45 minute drop-dead time limit for games at all age levels. Final scores revert to last full inning played.
