LMLL Softball Travel Fall Tryouts Sun Aug 16


UpdatedWednesday July 29, 2020 byLMLL Registrar.

Fall Travel Softball tryouts are open to all LMLL-eligible players (not just those who played Summer Travel) who were 8-14 years old on December 31, 2019 (birth years 2005-2011). 2020 Summer Travel players must register AND tryout if they are intending to play 2020 Fall.

This fall, we will be fielding teams in the following age groups: 10U, 12U and 14U. All teams will compete against teams from the Tri-County Softball League (which our 10U, 12U & 14U Summer Travel teams are playing in now) and attend one or two weekend tournaments. Travel will be primarily in southern Westchester County, though tournaments may be farther away.

The 2020 Fall season begins the week of Labor Day and continues through the end of October.

Tryouts for all age groups will be held late in the day on Sunday, August 16. There will be different start times in order to stagger the players in accordance with social distancing requirements, and the tryout will take about an hour.. We will determine start times by age group and will notify you of your start time and location in the next few weeks.

You must register in advance to try out. Visit www.LMLittleLeague.org and click the big red Register Online box.  If you are not available to tryout on August 16, you still need to register and should put in your Comments that you cannot attend tryouts - you will be contacted to discuss alternate arrangements.

Travel ball requires a different commitment level than Rec. All players are expected to attend all practices and games consistently. A lack of attendance will result in diminished playing time. The goal for Fall is to field competitive travel teams at all levels and we do not guarantee all players will be selected or that players will get equal playing time. You can expect at least 1 practice during the week and a doubleheader on each weekend.

The fall fees for 10U, 12U & 14U are estimated to be around $500 (plus a $50 new uniform fee for any player that needs one). But numbers have not been finalized yet. Fall fees will be required to be paid within 2 weeks of selection to a team to secure the roster spot.

Deadline to register is Sunday, August 9th. If you have any questions about Fall Travel Softball, please email SBTravel@LMLittleLeague.org.

All players and parents will be required to strictly follow LMLL's published safety guidelines relating to COVID-19. The most important precautions are (1) the use of masks at all times by everyone except the players while they are actually on the field trying out; (2) socially distancing at all times off the field (and as much as possible during tryouts on the field); and (3) no sharing of any equipment. (These highlights are not intended to replace your review and adherence to the full set of requirements.)

Anyone that would like to volunteer to help coach/manage a team this Fall, please register also. Like players, registration does not guarantee involvement, coaches & managers will be selected in LMLL's discretion.
