We are excited to let you know that the Southern Softpaw League (SSL) is in full preparation for the 2016 fall season! We are hoping your team will be coming back for another fun-filled season of softball, friends, and memories to last forever!!
As you know already, Southern Softpaw League is an all-inclusive, fun, friendly, competitive and charity-minded softball league. The league has the mission of helping metro-Atlanta's four-legged friends, along with providing a sports league with social and friendly environment for softball players, fans, and animal lovers.
In addition, the league provides the best opportunity to recruit, build, and develop your team for the next spring season.

We are excited to announce that we will be back at Southside Sports Complex! These fields are some of the premium fields in the Atlanta area and only minutes from downtown. We are happy to continue our partnership with Southside and to once again have our games played here!
PLEASE remember that all Atlanta City parks prohibit: alcohol, glass containers, overnight parking, and pets*. (They ask that you please keep your four-legged friends in designated areas outside the fences.)
Southside will not be selling concessions again this season. Thankfully they are allowing us to sell our own again this year! We will have bottled water, Gatorade, a variety of chips, and a wide selection of candy available every Saturday for purchase for your convenience.
Games will only be rained out if Southside determines the fields are unplayable. Anyone can call the complex's main line which acts as their weather line: 404-361-4100
We will continue our commitment to our charities by collect items for the Annual Pet Food & Supply Drive. Our charities have the biggest need for food (dog & cat), towels, blankets, treats, crates, leashes, collars, and food bowls. Check out the links of the charities below for full lists.
