2019 Girls Summer Fastpitch 10U-18U 
(March - July)


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, 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.

Age Requirements:
  • 10U - birth years 2008 & 2009

  • 14U - birth years 2004 & 2005

Game nights of Play: 
This is subject to change due to field availability and coaches schedules!! 

The Big West League has posted the Big West 2019 Girls Fastpitch Calendar.  Below are the game nights of play for each age group
  • 10U - Tuesday
  • 12U - Monday/Wednesday
  • 14U - Tuesday/Thursday

Practice nights and schedules are left up to individual team coaches to determine.  After teams are formed coaches will work with the ROSA field coordinator to determine field availability and schedule their team practices.  ROSA does not set a specific practice schedule by team or age group.

Travel teams will typically play in 2 -3 weekend tournaments per season in addition to the state qualifier and state tournament.  Selection of which tournaments each team will compete in is determined by the coach after the teams are formed.
