2021-2022 Pups Travel Softball Fall Tryouts
The Carmel Dads’ Club would like to invite players to an open tryout for potential placement on a 10u or 12u travel softball team. The Pups program offers a challenging and competitive opportunity for players looking to take the next step in their softball development.
The birthday cut off for participation is 12/31/2009. Players born before this date would need to participate on a 14u team which is not being offered at this time.
Teams will practice weekly and participate in 1-2 fall tournaments in September and October. During the winter off-season, players will be given the opportunity to participate in weekly workouts and conditioning as in-season sport schedules permit. The 2022 season will start in earnest in March and runs through July 31. Practices will be held two days a week at the softball complex at Cherry Tree Elementary. Depending on team placement, teams will participate in 4-10 weekend tournaments throughout the spring and summer months. Most tournaments are within a 90-minute drive of Carmel. If teams achieve the requisite points/placements they will participate in the USSSA Great Lakes National Tournament. This is a week-long event that has traditionally been held in Evansville, IN.
Tryouts will be held Monday and Tuesday, August 16-17, 2021 from 6:00-8:00pm at the Cherry Tree Softball Complex. Call backs, if needed, will be Wednesday, August 18 also from 6:00-8:00pm at the Cherry Tree Softball Complex.
Players will be evaluated on the fundamental skills of fielding, catching, throwing, base running, and hitting. Please bring a glove, bat, helmet, and mouth or face guard to the tryout. Bats and helmets will be available for those who need them. Cleats may be worn but are not necessary. Players will also be evaluated for pitcher and catcher positions if interested. Catching gear will be available for use.
To register, please go to www.carmeldadsclub.org and click on the Travel Softball tab or log into your account and register for Pups Softball Tryouts. Tryout fees will be refunded if the player does not make a team. Registration is now open and closes Thursday, August 12.
This program will focus on fundamental skill development, improving players’ knowledge of the game, teamwork, citizenship, and fun. We are looking for athletes who want to proudly represent Carmel throughout the state of Indiana.
