Bridgeton Athletic Association Presents

2023 Softball Program

The Bridgeton Athletic Association is proud to present its 2023 fast-pitch girls softball program.  BAA partners with the North County Travel League (NCTL).  The 14 game schedule begins in the month of May, and the various age divisions are generally coupled into pairs – 10 & Under (9 & 10), 12 & Under (11  12), 14 & Under (13 & 14) and High School (15-18). The seven home games are played at BMAC, while the seven away games are played at the home parks of the other participating teams.  All players participating in the NCTL must obtain a valid league ID card, which may be purchased at the ABC ballpark in St. Ann.  See their website for dates and times (
Age restrictions in the NCTL Softball program follow a cutoff date of January 1st.  Under this rule, participants in the 10 & Under division should not attain the age of eleven (11) in the year of participation.  Likewise, participants in the 12 & Under division should not attain the age of thirteen prior to the year following, and so on.
BAA will provide team and individual trophies for its teams that finish first or second in their division.
