Fall Ball Registration/Stampede Tryout Information
Stampede/Fall Ball update:
Fall Ball registration will remain open until August 12th (registration link below). Fall ball is also a great opportunity for those players that are new to the game or new to the Association, so please invite your friends to give softball a try.
For those of you that are interested in the Stampede program you can still go ahead and register for fall ball. Should you be selected for one of the Stampede teams you will receive credit towards this cost.
The plan is to move forward with the Mounds View Stampede program at the 14u and 16u level only. There has been some great interest in this program at those age levels. Since this program is new to many there will be a Q&A meeting regarding this on Wednesday, August 1st from 6:30-7:30 at Rice Creek Fields, to answer any remaining questions. Tryouts will be the week of August 19th. With specific date and time to follow.
If you are interested in this great opportunity please email Nate Urfer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
