Tryouts

Tryouts for the 2019 Elk Grove Fire will be:

- Friday, May 31 at CAF (Community Athletic Fields)

5:30PM

7:15PM

- Sunday, June 2 at JM Heffern (Bartrum) Park

8:30AM

10:30AM

You just need to attend 1 of the time slots. Signup Genius link is coming soon.

It is not required that you complete the Sign Up Genius to attend but if you know for sure you will be there we would appreciate it if you could sign up so we can begin to establish a head count. If you decide at the last minute to attend that is fine too.

Players are not required to attend all tryout dates but are welcome to come.

Players will be evaluated and rated on hitting, fielding, base running and if applicable catching and pitching skills. After all tryouts are completed, the selection committee and the team manager will select the best 11-12 players for each team. The final selections for each team will be posted on www.elkgrovegirlssoftball.com.

Cost

Cost will be around $250, which will include new uniforms and tournament fees (3 to 4 tournaments, mostly in July and/or early August).

Positions

No one is guaranteed to play any specific position on the team. Playing time is earned and not given. The best lineups will be used to give the team the best chance to win. If you ever have questions about playing time, parents are strongly encouraged to follow the 24 hour rule and wait 24 hours after a game to discuss with the coach.

Player Commitment

While we understand that some conflicts are unavoidable, we require a commitment from players and their parents to ensure that all players will attend all of our practices and games. Only with everyone's cooperation can we build the kind of depth we need to compete. Absences should be discussed with the individual team coach. Upfront communication is better than surprising the coach at the last minute. While participating in team activities, it is expected that players give 100% effort to improve themselves as ballplayers. Hustling and a positive attitude are expected traits of any EGGS player. Players are expected to be positive, enthusiastic and committed to individual and team development.
