Wellesley Girls Softball 12U Tournament Team
(for more info click here - but you will need to come back to complete the registration)
Wellesley Girls Softball is forming a competitive 12U team to represent Wellesley in some weekend tournaments in the late spring/summer of 2023. Led by a professional coach, the team will hold tryouts this August/September and then practice together this fall and winter.
Age eligibility: Girls who were born in 2010 or 2011 (or, in exceptional cases, 2012).
Team emphasis: The team will be more competitively oriented than WGS’s existing programs. Still, as always, there will be a strong emphasis on promoting the girls’ development as softball players; their well-being; and simply having fun.
Coaching: We expect that the team will be led by Keliann Kirby, a professional coach from DC Academy.
Level of commitment: Significantly higher than WGS’s other programs. Families should not plan vacations for tournament weekends. The tournament schedule will be announced as far in advance as possible, likely by February 2023.
Relationship to other WGS programs: The team is intended to be supplemental to, and not a replacement for, existing WGS programs. Thus, girls will be required to play Junior/Senior League in Spring 2023. They are also encouraged to play Fall Softball this fall, and Summer Weekday Travel Softball in Summer 2023. Program schedules will be coordinated to minimize conflicts.
Tryout schedule: Girls are strongly encouraged to attend at least one of the following tryouts:
Saturday, August 6, 9:00-10:30 a.m.; Sunday, September 11, 5:00-6:30 p.m. Both at Lee Field.
Cost: We are projecting a total fee of $950. This will be split into 3 payments.
For right now, we only require a $25 fee due at registration to cover evaluations. The remaining payments due in 2 installments (early fall, early winter).
Open to: Girls
born between: 01/01/2010 and 08/31/2012
