Winter Dome Training
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 during the months of November 2019 through March 2020.
Again this year, the Rosemount Traveling Softball Board will be offering an additional Dome training opportunity on Wednesday nights for 10U & 12U girls that are interested. Sign-up and fee is separate from Friday night registrations. There is a $25 discount for participants registered for both Wednesday and Friday Dome sessions.
These training sessions are open to girls who participate in RAAA softball 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. 12U girls will be grouped by their recent team placement. 8U & 10U girls will be divided up into groups by age and skill level. 8U & 10U groups may change over the course of the winter. The drills and skill stations will be run by the 2019 Summer/Fall softball coaches and Traveling Softball Board members. There will also be additional instruction provided by the University of St. Thomas Girls Softball team and coaches in these skill areas.
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 12-31-19. (Unless child was registered to play 2019 Fall 8U Rosemount Traveling Softball, then minimum age requirement is waived.)
FOR 12U -- Only currently rostered Rosemount Traveling 12U girls are allowed for Friday night Dome training.
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 13 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 Board will break the participants into the groups by age and skill level and assign specific Fridays that those groups will attend. The Board will communicate the final schedule by age group after the close of registration.
Similar to previous years, we will have pitching and catching clinics as well. A separate sign-up will be sent for those clinics.
