AGE BRACKET IS CLASSIFIED AS 14U - Girls Born in 2004 and 2005
The Board will attempt to make two 14U teams for the upcoming season; one being an 'Elite' team and the other being either an "A" or "B" level team, depending on the roster. The fee structure for the Elite team will be different than the A/B level team. The Elite team could include girls that are not from Rosemount and the team roster is at the discretion of the Head Coach.
Fees: $5 payable now with registration to try-out for both teams. Final fees will be determined once teams are selected and formed. (see estimates below)
Elite fees: $900-$1,100 includes 6 paid tournaments; Gold League Play; Off-season Wednesday night Training including hitting instruction; Off-season CrossFit Training led by certified instructor; 1 Winter/Spring Dome league (team choice); Team Bags.
A/B fees: $700-$800 includes 4 paid tournaments; Tri-County League Play; Off-season Wednesday night Training including hitting instruction; Off-season CrossFit Training led by certified instructor; 1 Winter/Spring Dome league (team choice)
This registration does not include Friday night Winter Dome Training. Separate registration will need to be completed for that later.
Try-outs: Mandatory try-outs for ALL ROSEMOUNT 14U eligible girls are on Wednesday August 1 from 5pm-8pm at Erickson Park. Additional tryouts for any potential non-Rosemount girls will be Wednesday August 8 from 5pm-8pm at Erickson Park. Try-outs will include hitting, bunting, fielding, pop flies, base running and pitching/catching(if applicable). There may also be a short scrimmage at the end.
Teams: Teams will be selected after try-outs and will be communicated to individual girls by Friday August 3. Girls that are not initially selected for a team will be put on a waiting list. Teams are subject to change based on final player count on August 10. Girls selected for a team and wishing to play with Rosemount MUST accept by paying their invoiced $350 non-refundable deposit by August 10. Girls on the waiting list will be contacted by August 11 and will be allowed to register late, if a roster spot opens up. Girls not selected for a team should contact the Program Director, Michael Leppones, for other opportunities at neighboring associations.
Schedule: Girls that are selected for a Rosemount 14u team are expected to be with that team during the Fall season, off-season training/tournaments and the 2019 Spring Season.
