Harris Heat 10U Tryout Information

 

Harris Heat 10U Softball will be hosting two tryouts for the upcoming 2018 season. Our mission is to develop young softball players through proper skills training and positive reinforcement in a fun-filled environment. We encourage players with positive attitudes, commitment to hard work, and a true love of the game to tryout. Multiple position experience is a plus but not a “must have” requirement as we will teach your athlete how to play other positions on the field.

The 2018 season will consist of approximately five to six local tournaments beginning in late April. The season will conclude by the end of July. All of our tournaments will be within a 90 minute radius of Granger, IN and will not require any overnight hotel stays. We will offer indoor winter workouts that are exclusive to our team in an effort to maximize individual instruction and team unity. Once the weather clears, we will practice at Harris throughout the season.

 

Harris Heat 10U Tryout Information:

 

Thursday, August 3rd from 7:00 to 9:00 pm on Harris Field 8 - Behind the concession stand

Tuesday, August 8th from 7:00 to 9:00 pm on Harris Field 8 - Behind the concession stand

  • Please come ready to participate by bringing your own glove, helmet, and bat. Balls will be provided.
  • Players are only required to attend one of the tryouts listed above.
  •  We will not be charging a tryout fee.
