OSWEGO, NY – The Pride travel softball program will have a tryout/commitment day from 3 – 5 p.m. on September 14 at the Oswego High School varsity softball field for any girl interested in playing Pride travel softball next summer.
In case of rain, the session will be held at the following week, September 21 at the same time and location.
The session will consist of skill work and a scrimmage game conducted by the Pride coaching staff. All Pride coaches will be on hand to evaluate players for the 2015 season.
Head coaches for the 2015 Pride summer teams are as follows: 12U, Kevin Ahern; 14U Mike Bradshaw; 16U, Mike McCrobie and Mark Lazzaro.
Assistant coaches will be named later this fall.
In 2015, the Pride organization hopes to field three teams based on the number of interested players.
Levels of play will be 12-under (players born after 1/1/02); 14-under (players born after 1/1/00); and 16-under (players born after 1/1/98).
The Pride is in its 19th year of competing in the Amateur Softball Association’s Junior Olympic softball program.
Pride has won numerous tournaments throughout Central New York, as well as two New York State Class B 16U championships.
“We would like to invite any girl who is passionate about softball to come on out to find out what Pride travel softball is all about,” said Mike McCrobie of Pride softball. “It’s important for coaches to establish a roster this fall and get a commitment for next summer, so we’re hoping for a big turnout.”
Players from throughout Central New York are welcome, as Pride Softball is not limited to just Oswego participants.
