TRYOUT UPDATE  8/26
The 12U tryouts for tonight, 8/26, have been canceled due to the heavy rains.  Based on the forecast for the rest of the week, we are going to push back tryouts to Saturday at the regularly scheduled time of 10am-12pm, still here at Willow Park in Northfield.  We are currently working on an indoor rain location for Saturday as well in case the bad weather continues.  If we need to extend the tryouts to a second day, we will be looking at Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.  That decision likely won’t be made until after Saturday’s tryout.  Feel free to contact me with any questions.

BE A TREV !
    In district eligible players live within the New Trier High School district communities of Wilmette, Kenilworth, Winnetka, Glencoe and Northfield Illinois.
 
    For select teams and positions (see above) TGSA will open district eligibility requirements.  
 
    Most tryouts consist of two days of skills evaluation and team scrimmaging. It is the objective of the TGSA to field a number of teams that strikes the best balance of skill level appropriateness and competitiveness.
 
    All 10 and under eligible girls are evaluated for existing or potential basic skills including throwing, hitting, catching, running and are considered for a team based on their abilities. Special emphasis during the 10U tryouts will be to provide instruction on softball fundamentals over a pure tryout format to create a more enjoyable and fun environment for the players.
 
Pitchers 
     Pitchers play a distinctive role on a fastpitch team. The mechanics and fundamentals to pitching are unique requiring extra practice and specialized training, in addition to game experience.
 
    The TGSA assists in the development of pitchers by organizing and subsidizing professional fastpitch instructors and scheduling lessons throughout the year. It is highly encouraged for parents and players interested in developing their pitching skills to fully understand the expectations and opportunities in pursuing this position. 
  
 
 
REQUIRED PARENT MEETING
    It is a requirement that at least one parent attend a meeting during the tryout session to review the TGSA expectations for players, parents and team composition as well as answer questions.  
 
    If you have further questions or if you are not sure of your daughter's eligibility:  Please email Bill Byron , TGSA Director
