Team divisions are based on a player’s age as of January 1, 2018. For example, to play in the 10U division, a player must be 10 years old or younger on January 1, 2018.

For 2017/2018, a player’s commitment to the Jags will include:

  • Weekend practices in the fall and winter (typically, Saturday morning or Sunday evening);
  • Doubleheader games played on Saturdays or Sundays in the fall;
  • Weekday doubleheader games next June and July; and
  • Three weekended travel tournaments next summer.

For those of you new to travel softball, Jags Fastpitch, in comparison to recreational softball,

  • Requires individual competitive tryouts;
  • Selects participants primarily on their playing ability;
  • Bases a player’s playing time on skill, production, attitude and experience;
  • Is generally considered a higher level of competition; and
  • Can be costly (minimum $600 per year).
