Traveling Softball holds tryouts to allow participants to demonstrate their abilities at an intermediate to advanced level of play.

Coaches/Assistant Coaches/Team Managers: Traveling Softball is always looking for parents to help out in the program. If you are interested in helping out, please click on the "Chip In!-Volunteer Now" link towards the top of this registration. Coaches and Assistant coaches that apply will be reviewed and voted on by the Traveling Board. All coaches and assistant coaches will need to clear background checks and take concussion training. More information will be sent after registration closes.
Volunteer Requirements: Parents in all age groups (8U thru 14U) are required to work a set amount of hours at one of the Rosemount hosted tournaments (potentially including Tri-County States.) In 2017, this requirement was 7.5 hours per child in the program. The requirement for the upcoming Spring/Summer Season has not yet been determined. To ensure the hours are worked, all parents are required to provide a 'volunteer' check in the amount of $250 per child. A volunteer check is required for your daughter to participate in traveling softball activities but will NOT be cashed if the required volunteer hours are completed. Volunteer checks will be collected at the check-in table prior to the start of the parent meeting on Tuesday, April 3. Registration/Volunteer checks: 6:30pm-7pm; Parent information/meet your coach 7pm-8:30pm.
