Rochester MN Senior Dome Softball League
Rochester MN Senior Dome Softball is a winter/early spring league open to men and women players. Men must be at least 50 years old, and women players must be at least 40 years old during the playing season. Our focus is on fun, fitness and fellowship.
Games are played on Monday and Wednesday mornings at the Rochester Regional Stadium/Dome at RCTC in southeast Rochester. Mondays start with batting practice at 8:00 AM, followed by a pickup game at 9:30 AM. Wednesdays begin with batting practice at 8:00 AM, followed by league games that begin at 9:00 AM. Start times or session lengths are occasionally modified slightly, due to weather, player numbers or dome availability. The Wednesday batting practice and game times will be included on the Schedule page.
The Wednesday league consists of three or four drafted teams. Each team will be playing two- seven inning games each Wednesday. (These sentences are subject to change based on the number of drafted players and survey results) Players register individually, then are drafted and assigned to teams for each session. This minimizes the chance that a single team dominates the other teams. It also accounts for player availability based upon new players, injuries, vacations, and work responsibilities, in addition to promoting fellowship as the rosters change each session.
The 2022-2023 season will run from mid-November when the dome is setup, until it is taken down in mid-April, and is separated into four 10-game sessions. The dates for each session will be reflected in the Schedule page. The News page will record dome happenings and general news items.
Senior dome softball has a pay-as-you-play fee system with all fees collected paying for the rental of the Regional Stadium/Dome. Cost will be $6.00/day for each player. Special package offers will be available for those players wanting to purchase multiple playing days with a typical package being pay for nine
days and get the tenth day free. Players who are 80+ years old in 2022 play for free.
The Registration page has the Registration/Waiver form and details on options to submit your form. There will be Registration/Waiver forms available at the check-in table in the dome also. Remember, women must be at least 40 by the end of 2022, and men must be at least 50.
Standings and Rosters for each of the planned sessions will be posted as the season progresses. News is updated as RMSDS has items to report. Throughout the year the RMSS will send emails with events and news items as well. Note the More tab. Click this tab to see links to additional pages.
