I’m excited to announce that we will be starting a U14 Boys Select team this year. Myself, along with Mary Ann and Rob Hooton, will be coaching this team. The goal is to play in a few out-of-town tournaments in June and July and then maybe the Ontario Select Softball Championship tournament in August (date still to be announced). This will be a first time experience for us so it will very much be a trial and error learning curve. If the experience is positive, it will be something that we will look to continue and expand to other divisions and groups.
Tryouts for the U14 Boys team:
– Saturday May 5th and Sunday May 6th at 1pm to 3pm and on Friday May 11th at 6:30pm (all weather permitting) at the main diamond at Maple Leaf park in Cavan. – Registration will start at 12:30pm on Saturday May 5th and close just before 1pm.
– Eligible birth years are 2004 and 2005
– Players must be registered in the Cavan Youth Softball Association (CYSA)
– No composite or two-piece bats allowed. Bats must have ISF and/or ASA (2000 or 2004) stamps. Coaches will be inspecting bats that are brought
– Team will consist of 12 players
– Tryouts will be position based.
– Players advancing to the next tryout round and final roster will be posted to our website, https://softballcysa.wordpress.com/
There is no cost to try out however, there will be additional fees for those that make the team to cover uniforms, tournament costs, travel, etc. We have already secured a sponsor, Fraserville ESSO/Square Boy Pizza, but are looking for further sponsors to help with the team costs. If you are interested in sponsoring the team or know of someone that would be interested, please let us know.
We look forward to seeing everyone at tryouts.
