High School Slowpitch (8th-12th Graders and Girls who are 19 years old)
Commitment: 1 practice, 1 batting cage and 3 games each week (including one doubleheader)
Season: April through end of June
Teams consist of 12-15 players. Teams are comprised via friend requests and competitive balance, as determined by league director with input from coaches. All high school age girls (including girls entering their first year of high school) are encouraged to play and have fun with their friends. We make concessions for girls who play other in-season sports, work part-time and have school/other commitments. We want you to play and have fun with your friends! Attendance at all events is highly encouraged.
Girls hone their softball skills at a higher level of competition and intensity than they experienced in the developmental program. Games are played on Sunday evenings at Legacy Fields at Minnetonka High School and on Monday nights at Optimist Field (Glen Lakes) and Legacy Fields. Most games will be Sundays and Mondays. There may be occasional Thursday evening or Saturday afternoon games.
Players receive a jersey shirt. Players must provide their own batting helmet (with mask), fielding mask and softball mitt. Gym shoes are fine, plastic cleats are optional. Fielding masks for infielders are required.
A season-ending in-house tournament in late June including MGSA and Glen Lake teams offers the opportunity for additional competition. We also offer competitive travel options which play through the end of July.
