Tryouts begin Monday, January 29th after school lets out. Bring your Glove, Cleats and Running Shoes. Most of all bring a great attitude and a willingness to learn.
Our two JV Softball tournaments last year were a blast to host and the players had a ton of fun. This year we’ll do it again on April 21st and May 5th. We may even bring back the Taco Guy.
Details can be found in the SLV JV Tournament Letter 2018 flyer.
We’re bringing Youth Pop-Up SKILL CLINICS to a field near you. Our one-hour long sessions will focus on skills in bunting, slapping, pitching, defense, hitting, and baserunning topic areas. Our next clinic may focus on the Drag Bunt and after that, we may work on the Drop Ball or blocking drills. Presenters include SLV High staff and local high school and collegiate athletes.
For those not playing a Winter sport, tryouts begin Monday, January 30th at 3PM on the Varsity Softball field. Students participating in Winter Sports are not expected until after their Winter season ends. Be sure to make contact with us so that we know your intentions to tryout after your Winter season ends.
Now is a good time to pick up a softball and start playing catch. Pitchers should begin to throw 2 times per week until the season starts. It’s natural to throw too much early in the season and we want to prevent possible injury. Come prepared!
By now your paperwork should be complete and all participation forms should be turned into the office. We have a checklist on the Athletics site for you to be sure.
