2017 SCHEDULE


Polson Middle School Softball Information

Thank you for your interest in Polson Middle School Softball. I am looking forward to a season that will be competitive, informative and fun. I hope you will achieve some of your personal goals and that we will achieve some team goals.


Try Outs

Tryouts will be held at Academy field April 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th from 3:00 - 5:00 pm. If necessary, cuts will be made on April 6th or 7th.

You will be evaluated on: SKILL LEVEL, ATHLETICISM, COACHABILITY, ATTITUDE and EFFORT.

Be prepared to tryout outdoors. Bring layers (sweatshirt, softball pants/ sweatpants, Under Armour, long socks etc.) so that you are comfortable practicing in the cold or warm weather. April weather can be unpredictable, so be prepared for anything. Bring all of your softball gear with you to school. You will need to bring a glove and water. I would strongly suggest you wear cleats, but, if you do not have a pair, please wear sneakers. If you have your own bat, batting gloves, face-mask etc. please bring them.

Afterschool, you should meet the rest of the team in the gym. When the team is together, you can go into the locker-room to quickly change into your tryout clothes. (Don’t change into your cleats yet. You will do that at the field.) Once you are changed, you can head outside of the cafeteria to the pick-up loop. From there, you will wait for the bus that will take you to Academy field.

Please ask your parents to pick you up at Academy field at 5:00 after tryouts each day.

Practices and Games

Practices will be held during the week Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. We will practice after school from 3:00 to 5:00.

Games will mostly be on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Most games will start around 3:45- 4:00 and will be about an hour and a half long.

After tryouts you will receive a schedule of practices and games.

I am looking forward to meeting all of you on April 4th. Please let me know if you have any questions before then. You can email me anytime at: hobsonk@madison.k12.ct.us
