The RAAA Traveling Softball program invites your daughter to participate in softball training sessions to be held at the Rosemount Irish Sports Dome on Friday nights from November 2017 through March 2018. This program is for girls who are in the Rosemount High School attendance area only.
During these training sessions, the girls will participate in drills and skill stations designed to work on hitting, bunting, throwing, fielding, base running and other game situations. The girls will be divided up into groups by age and skill level. These groups may change over the course of the winter. The drills and skill stations will be run by the 2017 Summer/Fall softball coaches and Traveling Softball Board members. There will also be additional instruction provided by outside softball experts in these skill areas that is included in the price of the Winter Dome training. It is not a requirement to have played traveling softball to participate in these training sessions. The minimum age to participate is 7 years as of 12-31-17. Only currently rostered Rosemount Traveling 14u girls are allowed for Friday night Dome training. (i.e. birth years 2003 & 2004)
Due to the overwhelming demand for this Winter Dome training and the fact that space in the Rosemount Dome is limited, each participant will attend anywhere from 11 to 14 sessions. The Board wants to ensure that each girl receives the best possible instruction and experience as well as ensuring the safety for all participants and volunteers. Therefore, after registration closes, the participants will be separated into groups by age and skill level and be assigned specific Fridays that those groups will attend. We will communicate the final schedule by age group after the close of registration. For 2005 & 2006 birth year girls that are new to Winter Dome training and have NOT played Traveling softball, we may place these girls with younger girls so as to not create a safety issue.
Similar to previous years, we will have pitching and catching clinics as well. (There will be a separate Sign-Up Genius sent out shortly)
Friday sessions 5:30 - 7:00 pm
November 3, 2017 thru March 9, 2018 (exact sessions will be communicated after registration closes)
All sessions will be held at the SOUTH end of the Rosemount Irish Sports Dome (furthest from the main entrance) from 5:30-7:00 pm.
If you are interested in helping out at the Friday night Dome sessions, please click on "Chip-In! Volunteer Now" at the top of this registration. All volunteers will need to pass a background check and concussion training prior to helping out. Summer/Fall Traveling Softball coaches (including assistants) should all still have valid credentials, but please still sign up to volunteer if you are able to help out.
If you have questions about the Winter Dome Training Program, please contact Dale Stapf (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Drew Larson (email@example.com), Player Development Representatives.
