Welcome to the home of RASA,
the place for all the latest information regarding the Richland Area Softball Association.
RASA offers softball at a variety of levels,
with teams appropriate for girls from ages 5 through 24.
Big thanks to volunteers from Quakertown High School Softball, PA Panthers 14U, North Penn Eclipse Softball, and RASA at todays Work Day. We successfully closed down the park for the winter and also added new clay bricks to the areas of the batter box and pitching circle. See picturesHERE
What is Sunday Select?
Sunday Select is an opportunity for the girls in our Minors (10U) and Majors (12U) to play on an “All-Star Team” in games against other community leagues. The games are typically played on Sundays as double headers. In order to be eligible to participate on a Sunday Select team, the girl must also play in the RASA Spring Rec league. Unlike the rec league, girls on these teams are chosen after trying out for the team. Players get a separate uniform for Sunday Select and there is an additional fee (TBD $50-$75) for being on the team.
In most cases the teams have about 12-15 players on them. After the team is chosen, they have indoor practices on Fridays nights at Pfaff. Practices continue on Fridays through the Spring season. Select teams typically play about 5-6 weekends during the Spring season (between April-June).

October 29, RASA held its Annual Fall Ball Home Run Derby for players in the Minors (10U) and Majors (12U) divisions. Congratulations to the winners and thank you to some of the players and coaches of the PA Panthers 14U travel team for volunteering to help run the event.
PA Panthers are Champions of the Falling Star Tournament going 5-0 on the weekend against good opponents (including one that beat us earlier this season)!! It’s the PA Panthers third consecutive undefeated weekend and fourth on the year! This team has come such a long way since last Fall, and they continue to grow.
Congratulations to our PA Panthers 12U travel team for winning the USSSA Home Runs for Heroes Tournament in Lansdale. The team went 5-0-1 over the weekend, including back-to-back-to-back wins on Sunday for the Championship!!
Thank you to the two teams that ran our 2021 Indoor Winter Softball Clinics - Quakertown High School Softball Team (February 28th); PA Panthers 12U Travel Team (March 7th). Pictures from RASA's Indoor Softball Clinics can be found here.
RASA has instituted the following background check procedure for all adults volunteering as coaches, assistant coaches, and for any activity that requires direct and routine contact with children participating in a RASA activity.
The following three (3) items are required for all RASA volunteers:
3) A copy of your Driver’s License showing your current address (must match the address on both of your background checks)
The online background checks are currently offered online for free. Criminal History and Child Abuse records are considered valid for 5 years. However, copies of all three (3) of these forms will need to be provided to RASA once a year. All volunteers must submit the three (3) documents before any RASA activities commence.
Please send the forms to RASA... Email:

Thank you for your support as we all look forward to another safe and fun softball season
Updating and reviewing your RASA contact information
Every spring season, we have receive numerous email requests to update contact information such as email addresses and phone numbers - the RASA website has functionality to let you do this yourself. It may not be a bad idea just to log in and review the information that is available, as there are several options you may not know about, such as text message functionality to your cell phone (how nice would that be when a game is canceled at the last minute?).
To check or update your personal information, simply:
Enter your email address and password and click "Submit"
If you forgot your password or never had one due to registering in person, simply enter just the email address you provided when you registered and click "Submit" - the system will send you your password via email.
