2021 Fall Traveling Fastpitch Softball (8U, 10U & 12U) Details

The RAAA Traveling Softball Fall Program offers girls who are thinking about traveling softball for the next year (2022), the opportunity to try it out. For girls already in the program, it provides the opportunity to continue playing the game they love. For Fall Ball season, there are no tryouts for the teams.

(For 12U aged girls that are trying Traveling softball for the first time this Fall, there may be an informal evaluation to determine ability. Participants will be contacted separately. This is primarily for safety reasons).

Players who reside in or are enrolled in the attendance area of Rosemount High School (RHS) are eligible to play for the RAAA Rosemount Girls Traveling Fast pitch Softball (GTFS) team. Players from outside of the Rosemount High School attendance area may be allowed to join a team, however a waiver is required from their zoned softball association and must be provided to the board upon registration.  *For more information, see Bylaws posted on www.RosemountTravelingSoftball.com website.

  • There will be a $300 volunteer check collected at the start of the Fall season from each family.  If your volunteer hours are fulfilled, the check will be destroyed. Volunteer hours expected are still to be determined but will likely only be available during our August 14 and 15 Rosemount hosted tournament If you are unable to work your volunteer hours, you may have someone do them in your place.  This person must be at least 15 years of age.
