Tryouts will be held at Academy field April 9th, 10th and 11th from 3:00 - 5:00 pm. First team practice will be April 12th.
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.
