Frequently Asked Questions about Travel Softball My daughter has mixed feelings about trying out? That is a decision you need to make together. Our teams will be selected based on ability and performance. She will be treated fairly and with respect. She will likely have fun, especially if she views it as “just a practice”. She will be able to see where she is strong and where she needs to work. How far does the “Travel” team travel? The travel is limited to Northwest Ohio. It is likely that the other team is from a community that is in the NLL (Perrysburg High School’s league), such as Maumee, Anthony Wayne, or Sylvania. What should she bring to the try out? She should bring everything she would use in a game. That is glove, bat, helmet, face mask, sliding shorts, sliding pads, and cleats. If she doesn’t have these, we will have some extras or she may be able to borrow from another girl. Does my child have to try out for their age group? Your daughter can play above age but not below it. That is, of course, she is able to make the team. We would recommend that she try out for her age group and if she wants to try to play up to indicate that to the coach and/or commissioner. What is she trying out for? She will be trying out for the PABSC Summer Travel team. The season is from mid-May to mid-July with the league tournament being in mid-July. They will play on Monday through Thursday evenings. Teams may practice in the fall and indoors during the winter months. The frequency and number of practices is up to the individual team. How much will it cost? This varies from team to team and year to year. A good estimate would be around $150 plus the cost of the uniform, which is somewhere in the $40 range. Do PABSC Travel teams play in any weekend tournaments? This is an individual team decision, but they have as a way of getting some tournament experience for those girls not on a tournament team.
What is Spring Ball? Our teams often play spring ball together. They use in as tune up for the summer season. Spring ball starts first of April and ends mid-May with a weekend tournament. They play Sunday double headers and an occasional Friday night.
What is Fall Ball? Fall Ball starts September 11 and goes six weeks. It has been Sunday double headers. You can play in this as an individual or as a team. This is an individual team decision. More information can be found at http://www.fastsoftball.org/fallball/index.htm. We have talked to them and they have agreed to extend the team registration for Perrysburg until our teams are selected. What if my daughter can’t make the tryout date? That is the purpose of the make –up date, but if at all possible she should try to make the regular try out. It will give the coaches a better opportunity to see her in comparison to those her own age. Email [email protected]
if your daughter cannot make the tryout date. Will we be informed if my daughter doesn’t make a team? If your daughter doesn’t make the team you will be contacted through the parents’ email address. We prefer the parent explain to their daughter the situation. Letting her know that this is an evaluation of where she is and not where she can one day be. Only she makes that decision, and if she decides to work hard, she will continue to improve and be a better player. Will we be able to talk about my daughter’s performance? We are always willing to talk to parents about ways to help their daughters improve. We are not willing to discuss comparisons between specific girls. What are tournament teams like Magic, Wizards, Lady Irish, or Lasers? In softball, it is common for committed players to play on tournament teams. These teams usually play exclusively on the weekends in tournaments. They may play locally or not and overnight travel is not uncommon. Playing on a tournament does not conflict with PABSC Travel teams by design. Our league is run by the Magic’s parent organization the SGS (Suburban Girls Softball). The league games are Monday through Thursday evenings and do not conflict with the typical Friday through Sunday tournament.
