Defensive face masks are highly recommended but not mandatory.
Try-outs: Mandatory tryouts 10U & 12U for the Spring/Summer Season will be held on February 19 and February 26 at the Irish Sports Dome in Rosemount starting around 5:15pm. This will replace our normal Winter Dome training those 2 nights. More details will follow as for specific time slots for tryouts. (8u will not need to try-out)
Traveling Softball holds tryouts to allow participants to demonstrate their abilities at an intermediate to advanced level of play. Tryouts are held to help determine team placement for the Spring/Summer League. Players are evaluated by neutral parties who rate players, and teams are formed accordingly. More information on team placement can be found in our by-laws on our website. For 10U & 12U this year we will NOT have a formal tryout score for pitching and catching. We will have pitchers and catchers do an informal tryout for coaches to view and take notes. More to come on scheduling for the pitching/catching times.
Fee: The fee for the 10u Spring/Summer season includes: Registration to Rosemount Traveling Softball, League play, 1 Rosemount-hosted tournament, 2 outside tournaments and full uniforms (pants, socks, belt and jersey). Uniform Try-Ons will take place in early February at a TBD location. This will be communicated once we have determined a location. (Time slots for age groups to be communicated at a later time)
Batting helmet with face mask must be Rip-It Vision Pro: Gloss-Home-Navy. These are part of the required uniform but paid for as an additional cost. Rip-It batting helmets will be available for sizing at uniform try-ons. Rip-It helmets, softball bags, additional socks/pants/jerseys may be purchased at an additional cost at uniform try-ons.
10U & 12U - $375
8U - $125 (Includes uniform, League play, and 1 Rosemount-hosted tournament and State tournament)
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 2019, 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 $300 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 Monday. April 6th 2020 Registration/Volunteer checks: 6:30pm-7pm; Parent information/meet your coach 7pm-8pm.
