League Rules

The City of Burnsville uses the USSSA program as a foundation for the league rules that govern each season of play. However, in some cases the league director and the Burnsville Softball Council have voted to modify the national rule based on feedback from our players and managers. The links below will provide you with the City of Burnsville league guidelines.
