Aronson Park, 8250 202nd St W, Lakeville
Check in at the Pavilion between Fields 2 & 4
Our tryouts are open, parents are welcomed to stay and watch
If you need to change your time, no need to contact us; as long as you are registered you can come to any and as many tryouts as you like.
It is highly recommended to attend your first choice club tryouts first, knowing what you are looking for and what a club is looking for helps make the decision making easier. Tryout registration fees are non-refundable, if you can't make it until the last session, consider holding off on registering for the last session until you know the team status. Updates will be on our website
Players will get offered different roster spots at different times. If you don't get an immediate offer it doesn't mean you won't get an offer; our offers have a time limit so that we can offer to the next player on our list if we are not your top choice.
Come prepared! bring all your equipment, water and a positive attitude! Coaches know there is no perfect player, we all make mistakes - we want to see that you can shake it off and move on and learn from it
Please see our website for details about our program, our fall schedule (see calendar), frequently asked questions and more. We will be on hand to answer any questions while the kids are trying out.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Does my player have to attend both tryouts?
no, you may choose to attend one or more tryouts. Typically, if we find players we feel are a great fit, we will offer spots the first night of tryouts. Its best for you to attend tryouts for your top choice on the first day.
Is there a fee to tryout?
yes, there is a $25 tryout fee for new participants (t-shirt included). The tryout fee covers the cost of field rental, t-shirts and tryout supplies
How many teams at each level?
We will have a maximum of two teams at each level. If there are two teams at a level, the team is built by birth year. When possible, we register the teams to play at 13U or 15U. We feel this brings a stronger bond with the team and players development, gives the players a chance to play with the same team members for more than one year and lets us focus more on developing our teams while maintaining our most important value - FAMILY
My daughter is a multi sport athlete, are you open to multi sport athletes?
Yes! We believe strong players can be developed in multi sports. We honor the in season sport schedule and work with the family to attend as much training as possible. We do ask that during your second sport you commit to one night a week keeping up your softball skills - example - hitting a bucket of balls in the garage/cages/backyard, pitchers throwing balls at home, and/or if you are able to attend one off season training a week
