High School Slowpitch (9th-12th Graders)
Commitment: 1 practice, 1 batting cage and 3 games each week (including one doubleheader).
Season: April through end of June
Teams consist of 13-15 players. Teams are comprised via friend requests and competitive balance, as determined by league director with input from coaches. All high school age girls are encouraged to play and have fun with their friends. We make concessions for girls who play other in-season sports, work part-time and have school/other commitments. We want you to play and have fun with your friends! Attendance at all events is highly encouraged.
Girls hone their softball skills at a higher level of competition and intensity than they experienced in the developmental program. Games are played on Sunday afternoons/evenings at Legacy Fields at Minnetonka High School and on Monday or Thursday nights against Glen Lake and Minnetonka teams at Guilliam Fields, Legacy Fields and Optimist Field.
Players receive a t-shirt and black socks. Players must provide their own batting helmet (with mask), fielding mask and softball mitt. Gym shoes are fine, plastic cleats are optional. Fielding masks for infielders are required beginning in 2019.
A season-ending in-house tournament in late June including MGSA and Glen Lake teams offers the opportunity for additional competition. We also offer competitive travel options which play through the end of July.
