Coaches/Team selection process: we understand the stress that is created during this time for the players and parents. Please know that we are very mindful of this and try to expedite the process as quickly as possible. Listed below is a brief summary of the process:

·         Visit www.fishershseyouthsoftball.com, and then click on the “travel” tab on Saturday evening (August 5) sometime after 9pm. A list of players first initial/last initial/evaluation number will be provided for each age group.  This is how to know if your daughter needs to be back on Sunday for further evaluation

·         Coaches interviews are Sunday, July 30th

·         Coaching selection committee will select coaches Sunday July 30 (after coaching interviews)

·         First team coach will begin contacting players after Sunday evaluations (8/6).  Top 4 evaluated girls must be offered a spot on the first team. They can accept or decline. The rest of the team is filled by coach’s choice. However, the player must be selected from the top 20 of their age group. The coach can petition the travel commissioner to pick a player outside the top 20 if there is supporting documentation (statistics, previous season performance, etc)

·         Once the first team is finalized, the 2nd team coach will go through the same process

 

Player Cannot Physically Attend: If a player is not physically capable of attending the scheduled tryout, a parent/legal guardian must fill out a player registration form at evaluations on August 5.  Additionally, the parent/legal guardian can petition, in writing, to the travel commissioner to consider their child for a team. Once the head coach is named, they will use all information available, including but not limited to past coaches, past performance and/or individual workout to assess the child’s ability to determine if the child would be capable of making the team without a physical tryout.  

 

Age Group Eligibility:          10u – must be 10 or younger on 12/31/17              12u – must be 12 or younger on 12/31/17

Mission Statement

The travel softball program is designed to provide a higher level of training and competition to those players that have a desire to develop their skills beyond what the recreational level allows. This program requires significant parental and player time commitment. These teams are different from the All Stars in that these girls tend to play travel only. Girls must live within the Hamilton Southeastern School district in order to be eligible to tryout. Girls that are age 18 and under are eligible to try out. Independent, knowledgeable evaluators will conduct open tryouts and evaluations in the fall. The Travel Commissioner is in charge of this evaluation process. The Head Coach will select the team based on the evaluation scores provided by the League and his or her personal knowledge of the player’s ability. The Travel Commissioner will work with Travel Head Coaches to assure top scoring girls are named to the team.

Cats Travel Information


The HSE Cats travel teams are competitive travel teams whose focus is playing softball at a high level. Players have the option of playing in the Rec league; however, that becomes more difficult at the older age groups. Teams will normally play 8 – 12 tournaments. Most tournaments are played within the region; however, there is the potential for overnight trips outside of the Indianapolis area. The league will attempt to form as many teams as possible in each of the age groups (10U, 12U, and 14U) based upon player and coach interest, as well as the ability for the team to be reasonably competitive. There may also be a travel team in the 16U or 18U age groups; however, those age groups will be governed by a separate policy. Games will typically be played from April through July. Tryouts and team selection for the 2016 season will take place in late summer (time and location TBA). In order to maintain skills throughout the off-season, a light off-season schedule may occur. These are optional and other “in-season” extracurricular activities shall take precedent during the off-season. During the season (March – July) players are expected to focus on playing softball. Other athletic endeavors that conflict with tournaments and practices create a hardship on the team, players, and coaches. If a girl is planning to play another travel sport during the March- July timeframe, she must notify the league at time of evaluations. Those participating in other travel sports in this time frame may be ineligible for the “locked” positions.

Funding


Travel teams are self-funded. The League will support the effort through allocation of resources, i.e. fields, equipment, league insurance and direction. The teams will raise the funds necessary through Player/Parent contribution, sponsorship, fundraising (Please note our bylaws do not allow players to solicit funds door to door!) or any other board approved means. Players will be assessed an amount based on the projected budget, which is established by each team. Fees typically range from $250 to $350 for the entire season. This may increase or decrease depending on the games played and team fund raising or sponsorship contributions, and do not include the cost of the uniforms.

Tournaments


 HSE Softball hosts several tournaments throughout the spring and summer. This year we will host tournaments in April, May, June and July. Travel and All-Star teams are expected to participate in these tournaments.

Cannot Attend Tryouts for either Cats Travel or Cats All Stars

 
If a player is not physically capable of attending the scheduled tryout and makeup dates due to injury or illness prior to the selection of the team, the player’s parent(s) can petition in writing to the Travel Commissioner to consider their child for the Travel team. Once the Head Coach is named, they will use all information available, including but not limited to past coaches, past performance or and individual workout to assess
