Travel vs Recreation

Travel Softball Rec Program

Travel teams have some weekend tournaments with local travel. Teams are formed based on their birth year, so a team may have 3 different grades on it.

 

Example: A 3rd grader with a 2013 birthday can try out for 10U and be placed on a team with other 2012 and 2013 birthdays.

Recreational teams are perfect for players who are new to the game of softball. Rec teams WILL travel to other communities for games. Rec softball teams are formed based on their birth year, so a team may have 3 different grades on it.

 

Example: A 3rd grader with a 2013 birthday will play 10u Rec and be placed on a team with other 2012 and 2013 birthdays.
