What: Ross Summer Select 10U & 12U Team Tryouts
Who: Girls who reside in Ross School District
When: Saturday, August 16 @ 1:00-4:00pm
Where: Ramball Field - Ross High School
Ross Softball has decided to expand its brand, with a newly formed Ross Ramball Summer Select Softball Program. This is a summer softball opportunity for girls who are living inside the Ross School District only (unless outside district players are needed). Through tryouts we will form two teams, one 10U team and one 12U team. We plan to keep 12 girls on each team. Teams will be coached and instructed by current Ross High School Softball Coaches and former Ramball Players.
We plan to play 4-6 local area tournaments on the weekends in June and up to July 12 (sorry, no overnight trips, to help on expense and so you have time for personal family plans, etc) . We will play in a local league one weekday evening each week, and practice one day a week at RHS. There will be a commitment fee of $200 (due by 8/30/14) for each player that makes the team and the remainder of approximately $150 will be due at a later date. This fee is to cover tourneys, leagues, umpires, insurance, equipment. The total cost ($350) may be less if we are able to get sponsors or through possible fundraisers. Each player will be issued 2 sets of jerseys, pants, socks, helmet, & bat pack which will be returned at the end of the season. Players will be responsible for their own bat, glove, cleats, catchers gear, etc.
These teams are not replacing our RMS Select 7th & 8th grade teams, which we encourage you to tryout for, if you are that grade level. This also is not replacing MRAA teams either and we encourage you to play there, if you want, as well. For now we do not plan to play in any fall leagues (at least not this fall). We hope to develop some of our future players and hope to expand to other age level teams in the near future. If you do not get selected for the teams after tryouts, we strongly encourage you to continue to play and develop your skills through other teams and at our Ramball Clinic in March!
