Travel Team Program

Our travel program is open to girls who are interested in playing competitive softball.  Age divisions for the Summer travel season are 10U, 12U, 14U and 18U according to the USA Softball age guidelines.  Girls must tryout to be selected for the travel program. Tryouts for the Summer Travel program are typically held in early May. The goal of the Summer program is to provide fast pitch softball instruction to the girls in a fun, instructive, supportive, and competitive environment.  Our Fall travel program is a bit less competitive and is geared towards introducing girls to competitive travel fast pitch softball.  Age divisions for the Fall travel season are 10U, 12U and 16U according to the USA Softball age guidelines.  Tryouts for the Fall Travel program are typically held in late August.
