Welcome to the Rogers Otsego Softball Association!
Participate in the recreation and travel fastpitch softball for youth in the Rogers/Otsego area.



REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN FOR 2020 TRAVEL! (8U - 18U)



Description:
What parents and players should look for in travel ball is higher competition, longer and more frequent practice times, and a greater level of commitment. It is important that players attend every available practice and work at home as much as possible.  In addition to weekly games and practices, 10U - 18U teams will participate in 2 - 3 weekend tournaments (actual amount and location determined by coach after teams are formed) as well as the State Qualifier and State tournaments.  8U teams will participate in 1 weekend tournaments (actual amount and location determined by coach after teams are formed) as well as the State tournament.



REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN FOR 2020 IN-HOUSE! (6U - 8U)



Description:
House softball is for girls 6 & under and 8 & under. Our goal is to teach the players the basic fundamentals of softball e.g.- throwing, hitting, fielding, etc. and allow them to experience the values of teamwork through games and practices.



ROSA 2020 COACHES APPLICATIONS

CALLING ALL COACHES - WE NEED YOU!
If you are interested in coaching for ROSA fastpitch this summer now is the time to sign up. Whether you have many years of previous coaching or this would be your first time, we are here to help you as a parent coach volunteer.
Over the last 3 years we have been very fortunate to find parents excited to coach and will need the same support in 2020.

This year we will again be offering Coach Training Sessions that will help set coaching expectations and provide training and contacts for any of our newer coaches. These sessions can help prepare you to coach and give those considering coaching a place to ask questions.

Coaches Applications for Summer 2020 are due February 23rd, 2020
