Softball tryouts on Sunday

    Girls age 10 and over as of January 1, 2012, who are interested in playing on a travel softball team next summer should plan on attending a tryout session Sunday, September 11 at the Bellmont High School field from 5-6 p.m.
    In case of inclement weather, the tryout will be held in the Bellmont High School auxiliary gym.
    To be eligible, girls must be a member of the Decatur girls softball league but participation with this travel team will not interfere with house league teams. The plan is to plan in several weekend tournaments (no overnight travel) next summer and girls must be willing to practice at least once a week with the travel team.
    Practices will begin in late spring with optional sessions starting earlier. Pitchers and catchers will be encouraged to work on those positions during the winter. Cost of being on the team is estimated at $50 per player to cover uniforms and tournament entry fees. That price could be slightly more or less depending on the number of sponsorship fees received.
