CAA teams for Fall Softball play in the Minn Metro Fastpitch League (MMFL). The season runs from mid-Aug to the end of Sept. Schedules will be determined first by the team ability level and then by location. Games are played in the south-west metro area but could also occur in the greater metro area depending on game schedule. Fall league provides an opportunity for your players to learn about the game and gain experience playing fastpitch. It is an excellent introduction to the "travel" team environment at a higher level of play. Teams will have 2-3 practices per week. Schedules are posted on the team web pages. This is a season for continued play, but without a hard core practice or game schedule. ASA & NAFA rules apply. It is Fall ball, we play rain, snow or shine. Double-header games are scheduled at noon, 1:30, 3:00, and 4:30 pm on Sundays.

CAA Storm Fastpitch works to provide player clinics for pitching, hitting, and catching during the fall season. The clinics will emphasize softball fundamentals in fielding, throwing, hitting, and base-running. There will also be breakout sessions for specialized skills such as pitching, catching, infield play, and outfield play. The clinics will be run by highly experienced and skilled instructors. The clinic sessions are designed to advance the softball skills and knowledge of the players, the coaches, and the parents. Participation by current and potential coaches is mandatory and participation by parents is highly encouraged. High participation in the Clinic sessions and games will instill common coaching, skills development, and philosophies across all age groups and teams providing the building blocks for a successful program year after year.
