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.
We wanted to pass along some information for the Spring and volunteer opportunities. We are working under the cautious optimism that Softball will be played in the Spring of 2021. Our current plans include:
• Registration for all spring/summer softball divisions (Tball/Rookies/Minors/Majors/Vigs) will open on January 25th.
• The Spring season will start with RASA Opening Day in early April.
• Select Tryouts for the 2021 season will begin after the rec teams are formed in early March.
• We are excited to have rec teams from the Southern Lehigh Softball League join us for in house games.
Our optimism is tempered by the current pandemic environment so we will continue to monitor the situation.
Volunteers Needed to Ensure Successful Spring Season
In order for us to successfully run the 2021 Spring Season, we are still looking for more volunteers. If you have any interest in volunteering, please reach out to us at

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.
