If you missed tryouts and are eligible to play on a 16U team - this message is for you!  The 16U team is considering adding additional girls to the roster and we are specifically looking for PITCHERS!  Contact Coach Lee Shawback at 224-489-8908 or lshawback@hansenplastics.com to set up your tryout date and time. 

Prospects will be evaluated on knowledge of the game, speed, agility, arm strength, arm velocity, arm accuracy, fielding mechanics, batting contact, batting mechanics, bat exit speed and personal traits.  Players are expected to attend practice multiple times per week and attend games/tournaments.  There is a high level of commitment necessary to succeed and participate.  We play A LOT of softball and if you LOVE softball, we may be a perfect fit for each other!
