WHAT TO EXPECT AND COMMITTMENT:

Pre-register ahead of time. Registration and Warm up times will start a half hour before the tryout time listed. Bring a glove, cleats, helmet, face mask and bat (if have one), as well as a water bottle. Softball pants are recommended. Each girl will be given a sticker number to wear during tryouts. Parents and siblings are welcome to stay and watch, but please plan to sit in the bleachers to ensure safety from the various drills.

**To play 8U, girls must be 8 years old or younger on or before 12/21/23.

 

Commitment: This is a FALL and SPRING/SUMMER committment. Teams will be formed shortly after tryouts in early July of 2023. Teams will start practice in late August or early September and play a few tournaments in the fall. Teams then take the winter off and typically pick back up with one practice a week in January/February to get ready for tournaments in the Spring/Summer of 2024. Tournaments start in April or May, depending on the level of team and typically end in June. Younger teams may only play in 1 or 2 tournaments their first year and decide to play in a league to get more experience during the Spring Season. Tournaments are played in the Des Moines and surrounding areas.*

*Older, more competitive teams may decide as a team to play an out of town tournament(s) if the team chooses.
