Off season training for Pups Softball will be held September-October, winter training January-March, then season starts April-July.  Players participating in another in season sport should plan on attending off season training as their schedule permits. The main season for travel softball is March- July.


Our Gold teams function as our “A” teams and our Blue teams function as our “B” teams though we often only have one team for each age group. Teams consist of 12 players. 

Most teams will play about 40 games (varies by age level) and will practice twice a week between March 31stand mid July. Many of these games take place as doubleheaders or multigame tournaments that can consume an entire weekend.

In season practices are held twice per week at Cherry Tree Softball Complex, Prather Park (formerly known as River Road Park), or Clay, Carmel, Creekside Middle School Fields and winter training at the Aletto Family Sports Center.
