Summer Team Practices will be held in the Miscoe Hill Upper Gym from January until mid-April. Each practice is one hour each. This is limited to the girls that tried out for a the 2020 U10 and U12 summer teams. It is not required that girls attend all of the Summer Team Practices. The purpose of these practices are to keep the girls "softball-sharp" over the winter. Please note that attendance at the Summer Team Practices does not guarentee a spot on a summer team! Girls who tried out for a summer team should register for the Summer Team Practices through the website. The registration is now open. There is no charge for the Summer Team Practices.

Catchers will be instructed in correct body position, blocking, correct throwing, and framing. Please bring equipment if you have it.
Pitchers and catchers will be paired for live throwing.
What to bring: please bring your glove, water, and a pair of non-marking sneakers. It would be helpful to avoid tracking in weather during the winter months to carry your sneakers in with you. Please wear clothes suitable for practice.
