Softball - Travel

Travel Softball teams play in Spring, Summer and Fall. Teams are formed on player tryouts and typically play surrounding towns, including tournaments.

Berkeley Heights is committed to ensuring all kids who want to play travel softball have a team to play on.

Summer Information

We will be participating in the Summer D2 Parkway League [8U, 10U, 12U and 14U]

Spring Teams will remain intact with adjustments being made for any vacancies from

non-returning travel players or new players registrations.


Games will be played during the week (1 – 2 games)

10- regular season games plus playoffs

Practice (1 – 2 practices a week) will be scheduled by coaches at their discretion.

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!


Independent coaches evaluate 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 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. 


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 if you are available to assist with things like player check-in, hitting grounders/fly balls, pitching during hitting evaluations, etc.

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.
