  TRYOUT SCHEDULE 2016 SOFTBALL Tryouts Saturday, March 19, 1:00 pm - 2:30 9 & 10 years old Saturday, March 19, 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm 11 & 12 years old Location Ice Athletic Center, 1526 Deer Run Drive, Mishawaka, IN 46545 Tryouts will begin on time! You will need to get to Ice Athletic Center 30 Minutes early to sign in and warm up What do I need to bring to the tryout? There are 2 things you have to bring: your softball glove and a good attitude. If you have cleats, you may wear them, but tennis shoes are okay, too. If you have softball pants…great! Jeans or Sweat pants are fine. Softball caps, visors, jerseys, batting gloves, sweat bands, your own favorite bat…their okay too. Wear whatever makes you comfortable. One warning though: if it’s cold don’t wear a big bulky coat. It will be easier to field, throw, and bat if you wear layers of clothes. Why do we have a tryout and what happens after? Through the years, East Side has found that the tryout is the best and fairest way for the managers and coaches to select potential players for their 12u League teams. It is a process that separates the girls into smaller groups where their abilities can be evaluated. Each girl will get to field, bat and catch while being watched by the 12u coaching staffs. Every girl will be drafted to a 12u team and will practice with that team’s coaching staff for about 2 weeks. After that 2 week period, the 12u managers will choose the girls they will keep to fill out the 12u team. All players 11 and 12 years old will remain on the 12u team. Those 9 and 10 years old, based on the evaluations will be placed on the 12u team or released to a 10u team. (Please note: once a girl has made the 12u team, she stays with that team through the age 12. So some teams may need as many as 6 new players, some less.) It is very important for everyone to attend the tryout and every practice possible before team rosters are finalized. East Side wants each girl to play with and compete against others at the same skill level. When will I find out which team has drafted me? The draft takes place immediately after the last tryout of the day. Managers are directed to contact each girl by the day following the tryout. If you do not receive a phone call by the Tuesday after the tryout, contact the 12u Rep, Gary Bogunia, at 574-621-7709. Disclaimer: this is meant to be an overview of the 12u Draft Process. It is not all-inclusive. Participation in the draft does not guarantee a spot on a 12u team for players 9 and 10 years old. All questions should be directed to the 12u League Rep
