North Attleboro Travel Softball
Spring Travel teams are 10U, 12U, and 14U. These teams play double header games on Sunday mornings in April and May and participate in a weekend tournament in early June. Games are played with other surrounding towns in competitive games. Teams have formal evaluation/tryouts for a selection process. Not all girls who tryout will make a team but do our best to get every girl playing. To be eligible for Travel teams, a player must be able to attend a large percentage of practices, games and tournaments.
Summer Select Travel Teams play other All Star/Select teams from the surrounding area in the Hockomock Girls Summer Softball League (HGSSL) that runs weeknight evenings from June to July. Teams are 10U, 12U, 14U and 18U with A and B teams within each age group if participation numbers allow. Some of these teams also compete in area and state weekend tournaments. While this program has the same fundamental goal of helping each athlete to be the best they can be, travel is a considerably higher level of competition. Playing time may not necessarily be equal for all players as in the recreational program, but coaches will do their best to maximize everyone's time in the field. There will be a continuous batting order (all girls will hit) in the HGSSL league and in most tournaments. Teams have formal evaluation/tryouts for a selection process. Not all girls who tryout will make a team but do our best to get every girl playing. To be eligible for Travel teams, a player must be able to attend a large percentage of practices, games and tournaments. Players in Summer Select Travel must participate in the Spring softball programs or play High School softball.
Fall Ball begins in Mid/late September with doubleheader games on Sundays in the 10U, 12U and 14U divisions. Girls may be placed on teams according to the age group they will be eligible for in the following Spring. The level of play is still competitive but slightly more relaxed as some players will be playing on new teams as they age up.
Winter Workouts Players are offered full hitting and fielding instruction at a safe indoor athletic facility or school gym. Players are given a chance to fine tune their skills while continuing to have regular weekly practice. This is a great benefit of an active program. All players that reside within North Attleboro and plan on playing one of the above seasons offered by the program are welcome to sign up and attend. Typically this runs throughout January and February each year.
