Info For New Softball Players

Info For New Softball Players
June 7, 2016 GWHS

Important Information, Steps and Dates

  • Learn about our teams. We have both a JV (for inexperienced, generally younger players) and a Varsity team (for more experienced, generally older players).
  • Play in a league this summer if at all possible. One option: there are a few spots for incoming new players on the GW summer team, which has games from late May-early July. Practice for new players begins May 3.
  • Obtain a doctor’s physical (required for all high school sports) during the summer. Turn in the paperwork for the physical and parent’s permission form at the first practice attended (pre-season camp or regular season practice).
  • Pay the $60 sports fee during registration once you are officially on our roster.
  • Our regular fall season starts very early! Attend the voluntary pre-season camp Monday, August 8 – Thursday, August 11. Though not required, this is highly encouraged as it really helps to develop skills and get players ready for the season. Note that this is two weeks before school starts (August 22).
  • Begin regular season practices on Monday, August 15 (4:00pm daily). These practices are mandatory for all team members. Teams will be finalized on Wednesday, August 17.
  • Start playing games! Our first games will be on August 24, the third day of school.

Contact Coach Cornish with any questions. The times for camp week (starting August 8) are still be determined, so please call or email so that more detailed information can be given to you before then.
