Girl's Travel Softball Tryout Schedule!

Girl's softball tryouts TBD.  Coaches will contact players.


Concerning Tryouts!

We will not be fielding a 7 year old travel team this year and all players in this age group will play in our in-house machine pitch league.

“Travel” baseball/softball is for those who participate in the NEPL, MONTCO and Philadelphia Parks and Recreation leagues.  Typically there are two (2) games per week.  One (1) game at home and the other game is played away at a neighboring location.

Tryouts are based on the player's age cutoff date (January 1, 2018 for girls and May 1, 2018 for boys) for those who wish play in the MONTCO or Philadelphia Parks and Recreation leagues.  If your child/children does not try out, or if he or she does and is not selected, they will automatically play in the NEPL or the appropriate "in-house" league based on their age.  An example of this would be an eight (8) year old doesn't make a travel team they will play in the "in-house" league.  Whatever age your child is on January 1, 2018 for girls, and May 1, 201 8for boys, that is the age they are trying out for!

Copy of Birth Certificates Are Required For All Travel Baseball and Softball!  

All travel players will be required to provide a copy of their birth certificate for the purpose of issuing identification cards by the leagues.  Copies will be needed prior to the start of the season.
