When

There will be winter training with the spring season starting in April.

Volunteers

We are looking for volunteers to help at each tryout, but you cannot volunteer in the same tryout that your daughter is participating in.

Please email me at rfolty@bhpal.org if you are available to assist with things like player check-in, hitting grounders/fly balls, pitching during hitting evaluations, etc.

What to Bring

Players should bring their own equipment (gloves, facemasks, bat, helmet) and catchers should bring their catching gear if they have their own.

Players should also bring plenty of water!

Tryouts

This year independent coaches will be evaluating players over the course of winter training sessions to determine team placement, rather than a one-day, two-hour tryout. We hope to encourage on-going improvement, healthy competition, and give the players the most accurate evaluations, using this approach.

  • Tryouts will consist of evaluation of speed, hitting, fielding, arm-strength, pitching, and catching
  • Once we go thru the evaluation process, we will assign girls to the proper team within their appropriate age division.
  • We hope that we can roster every player that has registered, but that will be dependent on roster sizes and if we have room at each age level.
  • PLACEMENT ON A TEAM IS NOT GUARANTEED, however, we will make every effort to place everyone. 

Winter Training

Included in your spring registration is indoor training from early February to late March to prepare for the Spring Season.

Starting in February, we will begin our Winter Training at Gamers Academy in Berkeley Heights (343 Snyder Avenue). Winter training will be done by age group (8U/10U/12U) and will be lead by our coaching staff.

Optional Training

For 10U and 12U players, GRIT has customized an 8-week softball program for our players to get faster and stronger for the 2024 Season. There are 15-spots available (First come, first serve). Monday thru Friday, 7:30pm-8:30pm (1-day/week). Cost is $297. Contact Roger Foltynewicz at rfolty@bhpal.org if interested.

2024 Spring Travel Softball

Registration for the 2024 Spring Travel Softball season is now OPEN!

The cost of the program is $300.00. The program fee covers league and tournament fees, umpires, team equipment/supplies, 7-week team winter training, etc.
